1993 Mercedes-Benz 500SL Problems

Bad Switch/Blower Motor Resistor Assembly May Cause Inoperative Heater Blower Motor

Other than a defective motor, a bad switch or blower motor resistor assembly can cause an inoperative heater blower motor.

Emissions-related ports in cylinder head may clog

Ports in the cylinder head related to the emissions air injection and EGR systems can clog; the cylinder head should be removed and the ports cleaned.

Erratic Engine Operation and Poor Fuel Economy Due to Faulty Mass Air Flow Sensor

A faulty mass air flow (MAF) sensor can cause erratic/rough engine operation and fuel economy issues. Since this sensor measures the actual amount of air entering the motor, when it fails, the engine control module (ECM) takes the wrong information and delivers incorrect volumes of fuel to the cylinders.
