After an accident, we left the blinkers on and I believe we drained the battery. It was jumped by roadside assistance, started, but 3 days later it wouldn't start anymore without a jump.

...the tires vibrate the vehicle and it sounds as if I have snow tires on them but my tread is low. I'm not sure what the noise is coming from and it seems to be getting worse.

Had 2 friends who had 05 ml350's and both had some issues. Any help is appreciated. Thanks

Water got into my gear from the roof.

For a Mercedes Benz 2005 ML 350, What does the wrench sign with -5400 and increasing on the odometer mean? How do I know when to change the engine oil for ML 350?

Changed out oil and refilled with M1 0W40 - drove all of 5 miles and checked dipstick - strong gas odor. Could this be a faulty fuel injector? Anyone have ANY ideas? Thanks!

I discovered a residue under oil fill cap that looks like peanut butter. The oil on dipstick looks fairly normal. I drive 1/2 mile to work and back - live in CT where temps are COLD. No overheating, no white smoke from exhaust, no drop in coolant. However, there is a "slapping/ticking" noise on drivers side front of engine that disappears when car is warmed up. ANY IDEAS? I was told that it is a blown head gasket! I'm at 132,000 miles. HELP!!

I can unplug a plug under the passenger side dash to cut blower off completely but when I plug it up again it blows heat full blast nonstop.

the car has 189k miles, was running great. took off the road in 2012, drove it periodically , stared to not upshift. only runs in 1st gear. Drained the oil ;brown & smells burnt. Dealer suggested change the oil,filter & drain converter,
