My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question had not received a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

If the engine is not running poorly or stalling out with this tach issue this can indicate a fault with the tach itself needing replaced.I have seen the tach fail or act up in the past before with it needing removed and replaced in most all cases.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service.You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete

York missed something in his question the engine is not running properly when the tack comes on the engine seeds up about 200 RPM AND runs good, it runs OK when the tack is not working, but it is real sluggish. I am sue there is a bad connection some where I just can't industry it. There is a test point called for in the wiring diagram but I can't find it.
Mercedes Mechanic: Pete, Mercedes Mechanic replied 1 year ago

O.k.,your model uses an engine rpm sensor located at the bottom of the rear side of the engine as shown here.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/8phb88jvm9wnc1m/rpm-06-23.gif?dl=0

I dont have the testing info on this here but if this sensor is acting up sending incorrect signals intermittently this wil cause the tach issue as well as the rpm gauge issues here.I suspect this sensor is failing needing replaced which can be common.

Let me know if you need anything else and feel free to rate my help here as this is how I receive credit for my time.

Thanks Pete

I will open your question up for others here to see if someone else can assist further on this as there may be others here that may have more info on what to check or do with this issue.I hope you can get this resolved with ease.No need to reply to my last post here unless it is a last resort as it will keep your question locked to me and others will not be able to view it.If you feel you want to continue to work with me on this feel free to reply at any time but keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair this without seeing your vehicle.

Thanks Pete
