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.

around 60k for the scheduled maintenance. what are the maintenance intervals for the 1999 E55 AMG and what should I expect to pay? Thanks.
I went to a german car repair shop and they said I needed a Yah sensor ($1895.00)and new trans ($4,750.00). My car cuts out when you step on the gas and doesn't shift correctly.
Is there a key involved in removing the rear seat to charge battery?
