1998 Mercedes-Benz C43 AMG Problems

Transmission May Leak Fluid and Damage Control Module

The electrical connector at the automatic transmission may leak fluid. Over time leaking fluid could migrate through the wiring harness and damage the transmission control module. If that happens a new harness and control module may be necessary to correct the problem.

Trunk Lid Does Not Stay Opened Duo to Broken Trunk Spring

Trunk springs can break causing the trunk lid to fall back down when opened.

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.
