1999 Mercedes-Benz S600 Problems

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.

Tandem Hydraulic Pumps May Leak From Either Section

Some models have tandem hydraulic pumps—one section for power steering and the other for suspension adjustment. These pumps are prone to leakage from either section.

Coolant Leak Due to Cracked/Broken Heater Core Outlet Housing

A cracked or broken heater core outlet housing can cause a coolant leak near the bulkhead (firewall). Our technicians remind us that coolant leaks should be repaired in order to avoid overheating the engine due to coolant loss.
