Engine Misfire and/or Lack of Power on Mercedes-Benz CL600

Engine misfires (rough running) and lack of power are commonly caused by ignition coil pack or ignition module faults. Proper diagnoses should isolate the cause and prevent unnecessary replacement of good parts.

This is a campaign issue. Not sure there covering this anymore. Oil is pumped up thru cables to the coils. This is the oil sensing module. If this is not covered anymore this may set you back 10k -15k

CL65 went into limp mode. Original diagnosis by MBZ dealer was ICM - and it was replaced. Car went into limp mode the next day and left coil bank and plugs were replaced at 49800. 700 miles later, the right coil bank went out. Seems improbable that both would go out without some other upstream problem.

I have had this issue happen to me 2 times now. The first time the mercedes dealership did a "good faith repair", this second time just happend not even a year later. This is not a cheap fix and I am extremely upset that this is a recurring problem. There must be some other underlying issue wrong with this thing.
