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?

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.

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 new radiator,had the thermostat checked,changed the cylinder head seals

I have a 1993 300SL that has just developed this awful loud noise when I turn the steering wheel in either direction. I checked the power steering fluid and it is full. The noise appears to be coming from under the car, near the trans. Any ideas? Please help.
