2005 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.

Engine Misfire and/or Lack of Power

Engine misfires (rough running) and lack of power are commonly caused by ignition coil pack or ignition module faults. Proper diagnoses should isolate the cause and prevent unnecessary replacement of good parts.

Squeaking/Worn Brake Pads May Require Rotor Replacement Also

The brakes may begin to squeak at about the 50 percent wear point. This is due to the size and material used for the brake pads and rotors.  The brake rotor surfaces become uneven, causing a lip to form at the outer edge. This will generally require replacement of the rotors when the pads are worn (pad life varies depending on driving style and terrain).

My 600 makes a grinding noise beneath my feet whenever I press the gas hard? (1 answer)

Whenever I need to get my car moving quickly it makes a hard sort of noise coming from up under the car beneath the drivers feet. Its not the engine its either the catalytic converter or back pressure from the turbo I think. Anybody else have this issue?

Loss of power and check engine lt on (1 answer)

Fault code said left ignition coil was bad so I replaced that along with the spark plugs and the car is the same. When I pull car out of garage in morning it usually runs ok but driving to work it starts acting up and loses power.
