Average Mileage: 59,160 mi (24,000 mi - 107,000 mi)
engine will crank but wont start, Mercedes dealer claims is not the crank shaft sensor, no problems were found give back car with the same problem

engine cranks good but no fire no start at all
Went to go home after work and my car started for like 2 seconds then died from a cold start. had been getting a cam position sensor trouble code on bank one but car ran just fine. after car wouldn't start this time I ran a scan and got code P0336 crankshaft position sensor fault! funny thing is I had just taken my car to dealership to get my satellite radio checked out. they did a recall on the camshaft wiring recall. funny thing is I told them
i had seen a trouble code for camshaft sensor and they said if its the crank sensor they would need to pull motor and it would cost around $4000 to fix. Thats got me thinking they rigged my car to fail...ugg I just hope this is a fairly easy fix.
I have done some research and The sensor is on drivers side of engine in rear. check wiring and plug for damage.
Can anyone help with this issue???? Thanks
Car will attempt to start then not. Also will not accellerate when gas pedal is pressed after stopping
