2000 Mercedes-Benz SL500 Problems

Harsh Ride From Rear Due to Failed Dampening Actuator

Vehicles with automatic level control that ride harshly in the rear (no give in the suspension) may have one or both dampening actuators which have failed. It is commonly recommended the actuators be replaced in pairs.

Erratic Engine Operation and Poor Fuel Economy Due to Faulty Mass Air Flow Sensor

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.

Hard/Soft Tops May Develop Problems Due to Age

As vehicles age, various problems may develop with the hard and soft tops. If problems are encountered, it would be recommended to have a technician familiar with these tops perform the diagnoses.
