2001 Mercedes-Benz E430 Q&A

2001 Mercedes-Benz E430 Question: Random issue w/car starting

This has happened a few times already so I need to know if this will cause damage to my engine if I don't fix it straight away. I turn the key to start the car, but it doesn't kick over, like it's trying to but doesn't. But, after a few tries it will eventually kick over/start. Could this be a coil problem? How much does that repair run. -
Answer 1
Sometimes when a battery is beginning to fail it will do this, Maybe have a new battery installed to eliminate this possibility -

this ened up being the crankshaft position sensors. it was less than $200 to fix (incl parts and labor). -
