Mercedes-Benz C220 Problems

Mass Air Flow Sensor Failure Causing Poor Fuel Economy and Check Engine Light on

The mass air flow sensor can fail, resulting in poor fuel economy and Check Engine Light illumination.

Evaporator Temperature Sensor Failure

The evaporator temperature sensor can fail, causing the AC compressor not to cycle. If the AC compressor does not turn on, the AC system will not blow cold air. If the compressor is stuck on, the air will be very cold at first, before warming up.

Bad Spark Plug Wires/Ignition Coils May Cause Misfires and Possible CEL

Failed spark plug wires and/or ignition coils can cause intermittent misfires (rough running); the Check Engine Light may also illuminate. Diagnoses of the ignition system will be necessary to determine which components are at fault.
