how do i know if my drive shaft needs to be replaced

Also from a cold start the transmission will shift out of first but won't go to second or third the fluid has been changed and it's up to level the Boden cable is on and the trans fluid is clean

It all started with my headlights going on and off. Mechanic said that I needed to replace the light switch. Then the door locking mechanism had to be replaced.

When key is in ignition i turn it to start position..there is a ratteling or pumping sound coming from the base of the throttle body.

While driving the car and turn the corner the motor cuts off, it starts up again as soon as the car is in a straight forward position

Problem began on Saturday, after battery had been disconnected and reconnected to a new alternator.

Left the car overnight, thought the noise had stopped; by morning battery was dead as a dodo.

Recharged battery, moved car; stopped, noise starts again; when battery put on charge noise stops.

Help please, anybody.

My car dies and when the abs light comes on and I have to let it sit awhile before it will start again plz help.

Hello. I've purchased a '93 190E in great condition with the exception that it is running rough and seems to misfire on 2 cylinders. Once it's up to speed it seems fine, but not at idle. Could this be timing, some sort of sensor, valve or ??? Any thoughts as what I should look at?

Thanks for any help. Geof

the transmission started to shift from 2nd to 3rd and then the car completely shut down. I was able to restart it but it continued to shut down. Why?

At my wits end. Have replaced the obvious suspects, plugs, air filter, cat etc. and even the IACV to no avail. Want to fix problem, not just throw money at it and am currently about $60 from my waiver. Please help!!

When I shift from first to second it makes a clucking sound and sometimes when I am on the freeway sometimes I loose power also when I try to shift into reverse it just free revs

THERE IS NOTHING ON THE INTERNET to go by and local mechanics have not worked on one as old as mine?!?

how can i instal a compressor from c220 or other mercedes engines??? for more power?

Generally the car starts fine, drive 5 to 10 miles , press the accelerator and there is no response from the engine, Engine hesitates - will occasionally give a slight backfire ( coming from Air intake ? ). Press accelerator to the floor and the situation seems to work itself out after a mile or two.
Bought the car 6 monts ago with 51,000 miles - car is in like new condition.

My 4-cylinder with non-electrical fuel injection, Benz engine starts to stall when rev it up after first start up in the morning; the engine starts up oaky, ideling may be a bit rough. But it works okay after warm up to normal operatinal temperature. what can be the causes? thanks

I am not getting spark from coil. What do I need to do to check if it is the coil or something else

Also when i am turning a corner it makes a sound like a rusted door was being open

Changed the plugs and wires due to skip this fixed it but VERY hard too start cold. This problem happens all the time

Person who did smog test told me to put guaranteed to pass liquid but still didn't pass. Said something about cadillac converter

What can I check next to get spark?
