2007 Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG ProblemsEngine 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.
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.
Due to the size and material used on the brakes of these vehicles, the brakes may start to squeak around the 50 percent wear point. The brake rotor surfaces become uneven, causing a lip to form at the outer edge of the rotor. Because of this, the rotors are usually replaced when the pads are worn (pad life varies depending on driving style and terrain).
2007 Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG QuestionsThe car went on fire, front part damaged, engine looks ok . It is a 5981 engine ( 612 HP) . Please advise if I can take electric installation/ senzors/ air pillow from an S65 AMG which has the engine smaller : 285 KW ( 387 HP). Does it fit? THANK YOU (1 answer)
The car went on fire on compresor part , front part damaged, electric part is damaged+ senzors + hood + all under the hood except for engine which looks ok...It has not been taken out to see exact damage. If I buy a second hand S350 can I use most what is under the hood to transfer it to the burn...
It makes a funny noise like its misfiring. I replaced the coil, spark plugs, catalytic converters/exhaust system, gearbox, fuel tank unit but nothing has changed. What can I do? Mercedes garage are failing to identify the fault.
