Was just fine earlier today

Every once in a while, when I start the car and begin to drive, the front left tire will stop itself and my ESP slip light will come on. It will do this about every 5 to 10 seconds until I key cycle (shut the car down, start it back up). After that it goes away, sometimes for 24 hours, sometimes for months! There's no warning lights on otherwise. As it only happens intermittingly, my mechanic was not able to replicate the problem, therefore unable to fix it. Any benz geniuses out there encountered similar?

what is the head bolt torque sequence and how much to torque them to? Any other special instructions?

It sometimes revs without moving while on D and moves while it is on N. Restarting the ignition makes it ok. It happens usually in the mornings.

Pedal hard to accelerate smoothly without a lot of pressure!!

we have changed the fuel pump but still the car start and shut off

I park outside. I tried warming up the car a couple of days later and it ran fine. Now it has done it again. What's up.

Hello . I have an ML 55AMG - 2000 - its in limp mode - no reverse lights - the speedometer shakes at start up - the gear display is blank - and the shifter isnt coming out of park. The OBDII code I got is P0720.

The car still goes into reverse but can't get out of the lower gear. I press the over ride with a pen to shift out of park.

My ML55 AMG started showing LOW RANGE indicator on the dash board.I've done all I could but the light wont go.nw the vehicle isnt driving well again.I noticed that it does not select the automatic gears as it does Or as it should.

I have changed shocks twice still the problem is not removed. I hear there are hydraulics and Airflow (?) shocks. Does it means I have the wrong shocks fixed? What could be responsible for the bouncing ride? Please help.

I started my car this morning and there is a loud noise or pump that is staying on after the car has been started and when it is shut down.
The noise seems to be some type of electrical pump near the left front of the engine.
I disengaged the battery cable and then reengaged the cable and the pump continues.
Any suggestions???

i ahve ml 55 2001 model, recently my car got jammed and its dashboard is not working, doesnt even take ingnition. im worried because no one is able to understand the actual problem. the car is jammed and doesnt start at all and the battery seems to be fine. ill be glad if i get any assistance in this matter

My truck stalls then starts after about 20 minutes. It started on the highway 1 hour 30 minutes from home. I waited 20 minutes and drove about 20 minutes until I got home. It sucked! I need assistance locating the sensor on my 2001 Mercedes ML55 AMG. Every link says its simple, and on youtube they don't show my truck. My truck has a very tight fit along the firewall and has the radiator reservoir on top along with brake lines and fuel lines in the way. The mass air flow is behind the engine under the reservoir. My problem is locating the Crankshaft sensor somewhere in that mess. Do I go from underneath in this engine? I see no way of getting to it or even locating it from top.

they were working however one side came on but the other did not . Then the next day came now bot sides are not working. what should I replace? Is it the fuse that I need to replace or what?

It didn't star couple times I went to place to chick it but they told me it don't have any problems ??

On jan 24 2014 I purchased my ML 55.I recently replaced batteries. Does not lock or unlock or turn on/off alarm.

Home. no erro codes the car starts straight away manny thanks

No light is on in the dash.

I will be driving along and suddenly the warning lights starts beeping and I have to stop, turn of the car and then it is fine again some times for days, months other times seconds. Today as I was trying to speed up into traffic it felt like there was suddenly an air gab in the fuel and then it kicked in again. This happened twice out of the 5 times the car started beeping. It is really hot outside and I have been driving over a lot of bumpy roads but that is all I can think of. So what do you think it is?

Rear washer stopped working, washer pump at reservoir
is working and will pump fluid, line appears to be plugged, tried low air pressure in line up to 50 Psi. Found parts schematic which shows check valve in line but does not give any indication where it is located. Dealer said they did not know but would attempt to repair for $ 90 / hour. Said it might cost $ 500.00 + and would not quote ultimate cost.

Tapping noise only when engine is cold, once warmed up and driven it subsides and disappear after few minutes.

box now car will not start i have looked over wires do not see any problems

Have you or anyone experienced issues with your A/C with this type of model? I had own my vehicle since 2005. Never had to place feron in it until 04/2011. During that time it was checked for leaks and was informed that everything was perfect. Anyhow, I took my vehicle to a Mercedes dealership in Orlando since I was informed it is considered a classic and all of my cost will be 1/2 price and I needed my service B completed. Literally, less than 2 weeks my A/C stops working in 01/2012. Took it back to the same Mercedes dealership in 03/12 b/c now it is getting hot outside. They inspected it, found no leaks, supposedly recharged and placed 1.7 lbs of feron in the vehicle, and dye. Get this...in 2 weeks, my vehicle was blowing hot air. Yesterday, 03/26/12, took it back to mercedes dealership, they claimed no trace of leaks or electrical problem, but I have an exp. valve that is leaking the feron. This valve is visible to the naked eye, yet they were not able to spot this significant problem before Strangely, I didn't see any yellow coloring from that area of the value or anywhere underneath the hood as they demonstated. Only dark oily substance around the valve, which they claimed caused the leaks. Is it me, b/c that doesn't make sense. Any one with this model experienced A/C problems that could give me some advice? Thanks!

I agree with your comment b/c I also own the same limited edition that still looks and run well. Speaking of issues...Have you or anyone experienced issues with your A/C with this type of model?

I cannot get the rear brake rotor to break loose. Is there something like an emergancy break holding it on. I can't find any kind of adjustment for the emergancy brake that I know of. Another car I had had a star adjuster on the internal drum emergancy brake. I don't see anything like that on this one.

I have had my brakes replaced withing the last 60 days. Recently the ABS and other dashboard lights come on. I have had the brake light switch and the ABS pump relay replaced. Solved the issue for 3 days. Lights back on and am being told the ABS Hydraulic Pump Assembly may need to be replaced at a substantial cost..Could there be another cause such as brake pads installed incorrectly or the wrong pads being used?

Steering wheel is hard to turn.
