Customer Question
I have a 98 Mercedes...
I have a 98 Mercedes SLK230..im having a problem when I give it gas fast..it starts to tke off but then all of a sudden it feels like you slammed on the brakes and acts like it wants to die. If I let up on the gas it catches up. If I accellerate at a normal rate then no problem. This car has a Supercharger in it.
