2001 Mercedes-Benz SLK320 Problems

Roof won't open/close correctly

Position switches for the vario roof can fail, causing the roof to stop in the process of opening or closing.

Engine Performance Problems Due to Crankshaft Position Sensor Failure

The crankshaft position sensor may fail. Symptoms of this are: The engine will crank—but not start—especially when the engine is warm. The car may start again if it is left to cool off, but it may run roughly or have poor performance.

Replace air filter when replacing failed mass air flow sensor

The mass air flow (MAF) sensor tends to fail. The engine air filter should be replaced when the mass air flow sensor is replaced; a dirty filter can allow debris to damage the new sensor.
