hey how are you

if you open hood and let it run at idle and rev it up ,does the engine comes from top of engine ?

is there any oil light coming on ?

have you checked oil level and quality?

is the noise changes if you turn ac on , is in the dash or traveling from engine bay to inside the car ?

the shifter shaking , that could bushings or engine or trans mount issue

any check engine light on at this time ?

lets start here here

Please let me know

Thank You

Customer reply replied 6 months ago
can feel slight shake in shifter which matches fluttering /ticking noise on decelaration
Mercedes Mechanic: Chad Farhat, ASE Certified Technician A6 - Electrical / Electronic systems A7 Heating / Air conditioning systems replied 6 months ago

At this time you need A Star Mercedes scanner or equivalent and read fault codes, even if the check engine light is not on now

something is happening ? based on these fault we can pul up a trouble shoot or it will be a guess and throwing parts at it

we need correct fuel pressure and spark to run correctly if engine related ?

the car needs to be raised on lift and inspect the suspension parts

Please let me know

Thank You
