I also noticed when I release my emergency brake I'm having to pull harder on the release to disengage the emergency brake.

Will this be a major repair?

How many control arms does a c230 2006 mercedes use in the rear ?

The GPS works but it's off by 500 miles (shows that I'm somewhere in stockton when I live in LA. I have a 2006 DVD for it and the new one is over $200. I'd buy it but the thing has been off for years now. Any thoughts?


When key is inserted in ignition everything (radio, lights, dash lights) works but key will not turn!! Sterling wheel is not locked up or in a bind, and the car is all the way in park. Replaced batteries in key fob and still nothing. PLEASE HELP!!!!!!

We changed 2 of 4 camshaft positioning sensor, but the engine check light is keep coming back. I noticed the 2 sensors that we installed is different brand from the other 2. Is it the reason why the engine check light is keep coming back Or what should we do?

The other day. The wife parked the car at work.

She said it did not want to start. I checked it out and brought my OBD reader. It threw out some codes of concern initially for the CAMSHAFT Sensors.

I had it towed to a nearby shop and they said the CAMSHAFT POSITION SENSORS had some oil on them and to have them replaced.

I towed the vehicle home because I did not want to pay the crazy labor to have sensors replaced.

I went ahead and replaced the CAM sensors, and nothing!!!

Still back to square one.

I also had my neighbor come by for a second opinion. First thing he checked was the Fuel pump. Also nothing. No humming or noise showing indications that fuel is being distributed.

That is the last time we troubleshoot'D the car. I am stuck and don't know where else to check.

I did a lot of reading and checked the MB Forums. It seems that a lot of issues with this car is pointing towards the CPS.

Please help!

Where is the fuel pump located and how to remove it?

alternater is fine . afer it sit's awhile after driven some noise comes from the passengerside and we disconnect the battery so it won't drain it

In night sometime normal in afternoon to totre failed

And also when installing them how do I repair the interior?

I had my first accident yesterday, I hit to curbs and ended up in a front lawn, the rubbed part of my tire came completely off when it was getting put on a flat bed, my bumper came off and it looks like both my tires are uneven.

I have an error code P0172 on a Mercedes C230 2005,
When the engine is hot and the car is restarted sputtering happens in the engine and rough idle for about 30 sec to 1 min then the engine runs OK,
The problem is only when HOT.
A new Fuel filter + the vacuum hoses (2 hoses) + new thermostat was installed.

The car on the highway when trying to accelerate seems not to accelerate. I put my feet down and the car speed doesn't increase much till you give it kick down, other then that the car runs well no shaking, stable rpm, stable temperature, only transmission jerks when shifting gear 1, the rest are smooth and ok.

Please can you give me your assessment because I have been getting different opinions and becoming desperate about the issue.
