1999 Mercedes-Benz E430 Problems

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.

Oil Leaking From Oil Level Sensor

An engine oil leak may develop from the oil level sensor. Replacement of the leaking sensor will commonly correct this concern.

The crankshaft position sensor may fail. Symptoms of this are: The engine will crank—but not start—especially when the engine is warm. The car may start again if it is left to cool off, but it may run roughly or have poor performance.
