2008 Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG Problems

Engine -- Verified

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.

Miscellaneous -- Verified

Leaks in the pneumatic system will cause problems with the dynamic seats and the trunk and/or door closing assist.

Miscellaneous -- Verified

On higher mileage vehicles, wear causes noise at the vario roof seals. Lubricating the seals can usually cure the problem; in most cases, the seals do not need replacement.

Drive Train -- Verified

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.

Drive Train -- Verified

The electrical connector at the automatic transmission may leak fluid into the wiring harness. If not repaired, the oil will migrate through the wiring harness and damage the transmission control module. At that point, a new harness and control module may be necessary to correct this problem.
