First thing you need to do is have the fault codes read out using diagnostic equipment and then post the codes here and I can help you to diagnose the problem.

What was the fault code on the BAS/ASR system? Faults on the ASR will kill the engine power.

He most probably used an OBD II unit and checked the drivetrain only, you need someone who can test the body, ie ASR. ASR faults will kill engine power and it does this for good reason, without the ASR functioning correctly the car is not stable under power.

I am fairly confident that if you fix the ASR/BAS problem the engine will perform normally again.

Benz engines really do not work well with bad fuel particles so it is advisable to change the filter, but your first objective is to find the ASR/BAS fault codes then we can take it from there.
