2001 Mercedes-Benz ML55 AMG Problems

Engine Performance Problems Due to Crankshaft Position Sensor Failure

The crankshaft position sensor may fail causing the engine to run poorly or stall.

Air Conditioning Not Cold

AC system leaks and/or a faulty evaporator temperature sensor can cause poor AC cooling. The failed sensor can prevent the AC compressor from coming on. Leaks cause a low refrigerant level, which reduces the ability to cool.

Replace air filter when replacing failed mass air flow sensor

The mass air flow (MAF) sensor tends to fail. The engine air filter should be replaced when the mass air flow sensor is replaced; a dirty filter can allow debris to damage the new sensor.

Cruise Control May Not Disengage as Expected

It has been determined that, under certain circumstances, use of the brake pedal may not disengage the cruise control as expected. All other means of disengaging the cruise control should remain effective. If the driver were to "pump" the brake pedal instead of applying consistent force, the level of force necessary to disengage the cruise control may be unusually high. Dealers will perform the repairs necessary to correct this concern. The recall is expected to begin September of 2011.

Especially older ML's with sagging front seats (where the sides bulge out a little) have the panel breakage problems. You can fix them easily with epoxy glue, a screw with a large washer and a handbook with new cur...
