1996 Mercedes-Benz C220 Problems

High Usage Vehicles May Experience Ignition Lock and Tumbler Failures

Due to wear, high usage vehicles can experience ignition lock and tumbler failures. The ignition lock cylinder will generally require replacement to correct this concern.

Mass Air Flow Sensor Failure Causing Poor Fuel Economy and Check Engine Light on

The mass air flow sensor can fail, resulting in poor fuel economy and Check Engine Light illumination.

Evaporator Temperature Sensor Failure

The evaporator temperature sensor can fail, causing the AC compressor not to cycle. If the AC compressor does not turn on, the AC system will not blow cold air. If the compressor is stuck on, the air will be very cold at first, before warming up.

1996 Mercedes-Benz C220 Reviews

I bought this car used 3 months ago with 70k original miles. It is beautiful, and rides and drives like a dream. It averages about 26mpg. I am very happy with it so far.
My gas gage is not registering,it goes up and down even if the tank is full of gas. What is causing this problem.
Great car !
