1997 Mercedes Benz E200 backfiring and lack of accelleration especially when cold problems

Report a Problem

Date:June 17, 2010, 10:28 pm
Name:Niall
Location:Ireland, Dublin, Dublin
Vehicle:Mercedes Benz E200
Year:1997
Modification:None
Problems:When starting from cold, if I depress accelerator swiftly car will backfire severely. Problem becomes less severe when heated up. Probably also lacks acceleration. How likely is it that the timing chain has stretched thereby causing the problem.

All thoughts much appreciated.
