2007 Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG Problems

Rough 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.

Leaks Develop at Differential Seals/Cover on High Mileage/Older Vehicles

High mileage or older vehicles commonly develop leaks from the differential seals and/or cover. Our technicians recommend a complete reseal of the differential unit whenever these leaks are repaired.

Cracked Driveshaft Flex Discs May Cause Driveshaft Movement/Vibration

A vibration felt through the center floor of the vehicle can be caused by driveshaft flex discs, which crack and shred, causing excessive driveshaft movement. Not repairing these can cause damage to the driveshaft center support bearing, or, in the worst case scenario, damage to the transmission or differential.
