Mercedes-Benz 300TE 4MATIC Problems

Rough running motor/lack of power due to failed ignition coil packs/spark plug resistors

Failed ignition coil packs or spark plug resistors can cause a rough running motor or lack of power.

Faulty Mass Air Flow Sensor Causing Erratic Engine Operation and Poor Fuel Economy

A faulty mass air flow (MAF) sensor can cause erratic/rough engine operation and fuel economy issues. Since this sensor measures the actual amount of air entering the motor, when it fails, the engine control module (ECM) takes the wrong information and delivers incorrect volumes of fuel to the cylinders.

Blend Doors in HVAC May Stop Working Due to Bad Vacuum Actuators

One or more blend door vacuum actuators may fail resulting in the incorrect output temperature from the HVAC system. Failed actuators will require replacement to restore proper HVAC operation.
