Mercedes-Benz 560SEC Problems

Electrical & Lights -- Verified

The fuel pump and/or fuel pump relay can fail, causing the car to crank over but not start. Proper diagnoses will be necessary to confirm if the pump or relay is at fault.

Exhaust & Emissions -- Verified

Valve stem seals may wear and cause the engine to burn oil. this can contaminate the catalytic converter and cause it to fail.

Brakes -- Verified

The brakes may begin to squeak at about the 50 percent wear point. This is due to the size and material used for the brake pads and rotors.  The brake rotor surfaces become uneven, causing a lip to form at the outer edge. This will generally require replacement of the rotors when the pads are worn (pad life varies depending on driving style and terrain).

Brakes -- Verified

As brake fluid becomes dirty over time, it can cause a failure of the anti-lock brake system (ABS) modulator assembly. Our technicians recommend a complete brake system flush every two years to help prevent this issue.

Miscellaneous -- Verified

One or more door windows may stop working due to a failed window regulator. Replacement of the failed regulator will be necessary to correct this concern.

My low milage (65000 as of 12/2010) is a great driving car. It has however, suffered a number of age related issues like rotting rubber and a failed transmission.
