Default major stumble accelerating

Today on the way home from my 3k service I took off from a stop light. It picked up to about 10mph and then felt as if the fuel had been cut. I ran out of gas in my wife's van once when I thought she filled it that morning and didn't check. This felt the same way. I pulled over immediately and checked the oil level as my first thought but it is crystal clear and to the full mark. When I restarted the car I noticed the temp was about 1/8 of the guage level higher than usual but attributed that to being stopped only about 2 minutes. It quickly dropped to the normal spot about 1/3 up the scale. I just switched to Mobil One synthetic with Mobil One filter. I don't know if the computer could sense the change in fluid and viscosity and maybe that was the blip during readjustment or what. Anyway, if anyone has had a similar experience I'd appreciate hearing what it was.

no problems re: lagging or stumbling. I usually got that from my 96 SL1.

Did they power-wash your engine compartment? If so, they may have gotten some water in your spark-plug wells which would cause the stumbling you mention. Remove the wires and check for water in there, or better yet, take it back to the dealer and suggest they do it.

Cheers, Jody
