Engine starts then shuts off is this a serious problem and what's the cause
On occasions for example every second or third time my engine will not turn over immediately. When i turn on the ignition some time the radio will not turn on and all the light on the dash come on. Then i will go back to start and try again. some time the radio will turn on and the engine will start. sometimes this could take for or five attempts. any ideas?
It's coming from underneath, between the first and second pipe on the rear 3 piece section,on the engine side. I've had some recent sudden and intermittent overheating problems. Sometimes car runs great but other times it acts like the air/ fuel mixture is off so it is very sluggish on initial acceleration. Sometimes coolant light comes on intermittently when it's not even overheating or losing any coolant?? New plugs, wires, distributor, rotor, radiator reservoir cap, gas cap, air filter, and ??? 92 300sl-24 auto.
was running great parked for a week would not start. replaced distributor cap and rotor, cam and crank position sensors. ecm and ezl checked all fuses has correct fuel pressure showed code for oxygen sensor which was also replaced along with ignition switch. mechanic has gave up on vehicle
Oil Pressure is fine when driving but at idle red light comes on I do not hear and noise that would indicate low oil press. (Rattling in valve train) Just gauge drops and light turns on.
The meters are going up and down sometimes. Eventually it may brake down completely some workshop guy told me.
Any tips for what to do? Is he right? What will be the price for a new or used one?
seems to not get antenna anymore ..any ideas

drove car back from Ventura. after 50 miles transmission shifted to a lower gear. pushed gas pedal and car shifted into higher gear. Condition continued so drove at a lower speed until I parked the car. Went to start it the next day. Dash lights went on but not even a click fromn the starter. Battery is fully charged. went to move the car by putting car into neutral. wheels locked up as if it is in park.

I HAVE A 1992 MERCEDES BENZ 300SL THATS been sitting for about 7months now and i still have yet to drive it. i purchased this vehicle from a private owner and the first thing i wanted to do was the common oil change and radiator flush, after these services were performed the vehicle was started and driven to the nearest gas station for a fill up when it was noticed overheating. once taken back to the garage it was found that oil was in the radiator and we quickly emptied and changed the oil filter. the car once again was started and the same thing, overheated and oil in the radiator. mind you the oil was fine nice clean oil but oil in the radiator so we left it alone for a while . recently weve attempted to start the vehicle and noticed after the 1st couple attempts of starting it we found water in the oil but the radiator was clean , although no over heating just water in the oil . how can i get this done without costing an arm and left leg
