2005 Mercedes-Benz S600 ProblemsRough Running Motor/Lack of Power Due to Coil Pack/Ignition Module Failure
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.
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.
The evaporator temperature sensor can fail, causing the AC compressor not to cycle. If the AC compressor does not turn on, the AC system will not blow cold air. If the compressor is stuck on, the air will be very cold at first, before warming up.
2005 Mercedes-Benz S600 QuestionsMy 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?
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.
