Loss power wont start maybe
I had a chevrolet cavalier once that had a clogged exhaust. i was driving and the catalytic converter fell apart, and clogged the exhaust system. I completely lost power, and barely got home. Try getting your arm under the car, and hit the catalytic converter with your had, or a mallet. If it has fallen apart and failed, you should hear a clattering sound. Try inspecting the whole exhaust system, looking for bends in the exhaust pipes. When my catalytic converter failed, i also heard a hissing sound when it was running, and the engine was slightly overheating because of the restriction in the exhaust.

The windshield wipers on my 1994 S 300 mercedes
1) It is normal for the wipers, in rain sensor mode, to cycle once upon startup.
2) In rain sensor mode, the wipers should be intermittent with the
cycles increasing as the volume of moisture increases on the windshield.
The speed will increase until it reaches the continuous slow speed of
position 2 on the switch. It will not increase to the fastest speed
which is position 3 on the switch. You have to go to the fastest speed
by manually rotating the switch to postion 3. Doesn't seem like a design
flaw to me.

Somtimes my throttle dose not work on my s500
this car uses electronic throttle controls, when a fault occurs in the electronics the computer (ECM) limits the amount of travel the throttle can open to limit the load on the engine to prevent any further damage, when the fault clears itself as they often do the throttles are returned to normal operation, the limited throttle is called "Limp mode", what u need to do now is have the dealer test the computer (ECM) for fault codes that may be stored to explain why the system was put in "Limp mode" with the resulting loose of throttle control..
