1997 Mercedes-Benz S600 Problems

Active Body Control System Can Leak Hydraulic Fluid

The active body control system can leak fluid from numerous areas, including the tandem pump, hydraulic lines, struts, and/or seals. If it is not repaired, the vehicle ride height could drop too low and cause damage to the undercarriage.

Faulty Mass Air Flow Sensor Causing Erratic Engine Operation and Poor Fuel Economy

A faulty mass air flow (MAF) sensor can cause erratic/rough engine operation and fuel economy issues. Since this sensor measures the actual amount of air entering the motor, when it fails, the engine control module (ECM) takes the wrong information and delivers incorrect volumes of fuel to the cylinders.

Rough running motor/lack of power due to distributor cap and rotor

A rough running motor or lack of power can be caused by the distributor cap and rotor.
