When I parked and went inside it was okay. Had to boost it off when I tried to re-start it. Drove about five miles and parked in my garage. Turned it off and tried to re-start it(no luck). Let it sit over night and it started right up the next morning. I am hesitant about driving it, because I don't know when it is not going to start.
Couple of weeks, my car just cut off without warning. I have the power steering pump replaced; the starter and alternator have checked out to be fine. As well as the battery! Please help
I have a wrecked C230 with a perfect transmission, and I saw this E320 that has a bad transmission, I found it for $800. I was wondering if I would be able to switch the Transmission from my C230 to the E320.
hit a deep pothole hard and car continued to perform until the next day. checked fuse and relay, both good. No pressure at valve on the fuel rail. did not get sound from fuel pump even after direct 12V.

No pattern. Happened 2-3 times over a month. Outside temp in 70's, no rain. Battery drained unless car is driven in 2-3 days. Parked in office lot during day when this happens.
Besides the cold & wet this happens without pattern. Locks can be relocked, lights turned off but in 10 seconds or 10 minutes it may happen again.
I got this car for my daughter yesterday. The panoramic sunroof wasn't working and the seller said it must've been a fuse because he'd used it that morning. Anyway, after checking & confirming all fuses were good, I took a peek at the components. They were all disconnected. So, I connected them & gave it a shot. The sun shades worked fine. The sunroof just makes a horrible noise. The left side of the motor is turning to no avail, the right side is stationary. I'm assuming that the right side is the rear glass & its waiting for the front glass to open, but thats just a guess. Anyway, after that... I can't crank it. It tries, but never catches. Plus the BRAKE, CHECK ENGINE, DTR, SRS, ABS, car inside red triangle & exlamation point inside yellow triangle are all lit up like Christmas time. I figured maybe the malfunction in the sunroof was causing the issue and disconnected everything again. But, its still not cooperating. What gives?
The gear box was leaking oil at the harness

car may go 20 miles without missfire or it may go 5 miles and start missing but going down the highway i can turn ign off and on and the miss will be corrected but only for a short time. recently replaced the mass airflow sensor and fixed vac leaks
I struggle when start sometimes motor sounds right and sometimes it sounds like two or three selinders motor does not perform like it needs to
At first, I would turn the steering wheel all the way left, then all the way right, and shut off the engine for about a minute, then when I turned the engine back on, the "BAS-ESP" light was off. But now, the light stays on, no matter what I do. Even with this warning light on, the car seems to run just fine. Should I worry and stop driving the car? What does this "BAS-ESP' mean?
Inserted the key and it will not turn. Steering whell is locked, I tried to turn it as far as I dared. Nothing. PRND displays a rectangle to the right not on the P.
Is the RTF signal not being received to unlock the anti theft?
Don't know difference between a sway bar or differential just need to know I was told that it's not my shocks
