Q: intermittent misfires with check engine light coming on and then going off on 2000 Mercedes-Benz SLK230

Intermittent misfires, followed by check engine light coming on. Check engine light goes off after a while. Dealership replaced oxygen sensor valve but problem persists. They suggest the cylinder head be removed and cleaned out as the next step. Very expensive. Not sure if this isn't simply bad gas, which they supposedly checked and discounted.
