1996 Mercedes-Benz C220 Problems

Check Engine Light and Engine Misfire

Failed spark plug wires and/or ignition coils can cause intermittent misfires (rough running); the Check Engine Light may also illuminate. Diagnoses of the ignition system will be necessary to determine which components are at fault.

Poor AC performance Due to 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.

Check Engine Light On Due to Failed Mass Air Flow Sensor

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

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 !
