Mercedes-Benz SLK55 AMG Problems

Rough Shifting of Automatic Transmission

Vehicles equipped with a 7-speed automatic transmission may develop a rough shifting condition, most commonly going up from first to second gear and going down from third to second or second to first gear. Our technicians tell us this is due to an internal component failure. Mercedes has released updated parts; the transmission will need to be removed and disassembled to complete the necessary repairs.

Spark plug wires causing misfire

Bad spark plug wires can cause misfires; the Check Engine Light may illuminate.

Tapping noise due to uneven camshaft and rocker arm wear
Due to uneven camshaft and rocker arm wear, lifters and rocker arms can be noisy, sounding like tapping coming from under the hood. The cam and all the rocker arms should be replaced.
