2002 Mercedes-Benz CL600 Problems
Engine misfires (rough running) and lack of power are commonly caused by ignition coil pack or ignition module faults. Proper diagnoses should isolate the cause and prevent unnecessary replacement of good parts.
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.
A vibration felt through the center floor of the vehicle can be caused by cracked and/or shredded driveshaft flex discs, resulting in excessive driveshaft movement. If not repaired, damage to the driveshaft center support bearing, transmission, or differential can occur.
The anti-lock brake system (ABS) modulator assembly may fail due to dirty brake fluid. Our technicians recommend a complete brake system flush every two years in order to help prevent this problem.

Now the biggie. Oil cooler gasket leak. Design flaw. Must lift manifold take heads of to repair. Mercedes won't seal gasket. You must buy new modified intercooler. Bad 600 for but good if it means you never do again. This is a 8day 8hours each day job. Do the math. Repairs covered by campaign 13,500. Parts not 23k. Car has 125k miles so for 50k miles driven 38k not including gas oil changesvand basic tune with up cost. Oh one last thing.The price of the used car in 2005 was 68k. So what do I think of this car.

Beautiful car with the worst possible electronic engine management. Endless repairs, right, left and middle bank in the iginition system changed, because the master computer declared it faulty. Thereafter the master computer exchanged, as it was where the problems originated). All at extreme costs and before 40,000 miles. Dealer helpful, but Mercedes France throughout ignorant. Today the car often drains the battery night-over, and the only reply I can get from Mercedes is: 'That not unusual for a Mercedes'. As mentioned at the beginning: A very beautiful car, extremely unreliable and costly to own in every respect. 'Constructed' ZIP used, as the site apparently doesn't accept foreign ZIPs.
