Mercedes Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello,The lack of power without fault codes is often caused by faulty boost air temperature sensor. It can be showing that air is too hot to the ECU and this will limit boost pressure. Please have it's actual values checked with diagnostic computer and replaced if neccessary.
