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

2005 Mercedes-Benz E55 AMG Recalls
There is a faulty software calibration that affects several areas including shutting off the fuel supply in a collision. This could cause a fire hazard during an accident. Dealers will reprogram this software. The Mercedes-Benz recall number is 2008 070001. This recall began during August, 2008.
Due to deterioration of the wiring harness connection or failure of the hydraulic pump, the sensotronic brake control (SBC) system may default to the hydraulic back-up mode. In the back-up mode, the driver has braking power sufficient to stop the vehicle, but greater brake pedal pressure is required and brake pedal travel will be noticeably longer. Dealers will install a bracket and replacement ground wire to the SBC pump unit on all affected vehicles. Additionally, dealers will inspect and replace the SSC pump unit in certain SL models. The Mercedes-Benz recall numbers are 2005070007 AND 2005110001.
High mileage combined with a high number of brake actuations, or a high brake actuation frequency, can cause the pump motor of the SBC to run out of permissible tolerances. As a result, excessively high pressure may build the high pressure line of the brake system. If this occurs, the system will switch into the hydraulic function mode as designed. Sensotronic brake control is disabled when the brake system is functioning in the hydraulic mode. Dealers will inspect the SBC hydraulic unit and replace it if necessary to correct this concern. The Mercedes-Benz recall number is 2004 050014.

This is an amazing car. It is lightning fast and very and top of the line in every aspect. i will acknowledge that the M5 is notorious for being a better handling sport sedan. However I can never get past the rediculous interior. It is hard to believe that the worlds ugliest interior comes in an M5. I will take the E55 anyday. A much classier car. The only issue with this amazing car is the Air...
I just purchased a 2005 E55 AMG with only 17,000 miles for $35,000! Easily one of the quickest cars ever produced, running with the likes of a new Z06 or ZR1 corvette or Ferrari F430's for a fraction of the price and gift w/ purchase is the unbeatable luxury, fit and finish just not found elsewhere. I can take the whole family for cruises and the exhaust not is much better than a new vette! T...
