Mercedes-Benz CLS500 Problems"Crank no Start" Due to Failed Crankshaft Position Sensor
The crankshaft position sensor may fail. Symptoms of this are: The engine will crank—but not start—especially when the engine is warm. The car may start again if it is left to cool off, but it may run roughly or have poor performance. Communicating these specific symptoms to your technician can save diagnostic time.
An engine Oil leak may develop from the PCV vent housing on the valve cover and/or the inspection plate on the front of the engine.
A vibration felt through the center floor of the vehicle can be caused by driveshaft flex discs, which crack and shred, causing excessive driveshaft movement. Not repairing these can cause damage to the driveshaft center support bearing, or, in the worst case scenario, damage to the transmission or differential.
Mercedes-Benz CLS500 QuestionsMy esp light is on along with the brake light and abs light (2 answers)
I have three lights on my esp light abs and break light and my power steering is out what could be the problem
Car warning flashed, "Stop Car low." car looks tilted and I can fit my entire hand b/t the top of the tire and car on back left passenger side. On driver's side, can barely get hand between tire/top of car.
I was told regardless of amount of wear on the pads (ie even if there is 40% remaining), one should always replace routers when brake pads are replaced. True or scam?
Mercedes-Benz CLS500 RecallsSensotronic Brake Control System May Default to Basic Hydraulic Mode
Due to deterioration of the wiring harness connection or failure of the hydraulic pump, the sensotronic brake control (SBC) system may default to the hydraulic back-up mode. In the back-up mode, the driver has braking power sufficient to stop the vehicle, but greater brake pedal pressure is required and brake pedal travel will be noticeably longer. Dealers will install a bracket and replacement ground wire to the SBC pump unit on all affected vehicles. Additionally, dealers will inspect and replace the SSC pump unit in certain SL models. The Mercedes-Benz recall numbers are 2005070007 AND 2005110001.
