First off this is my 7th s class w220. So I know a little bit on this era. My kid bought a 2001 s 500 97,000 with only a half of gallon. Left used car dealership and in a 1/4 mi car into limp mode. As she pulled up at the station and parked it in front of pump. The tranny indicator and location of shifter went into park. But tranny stayed in reverse. She refueled car and it wont not turn over. They pushed over and parked it. So I took the shifter apart. Got it working again. But its still wont cranking over.It is getting the no run stasis. I can gain access to a MB Star 4 analyzer.But I never used one. Help

It started when i noticed i had a leak, i looked under the car and had a puddle of hydraulic fluid. looked under the hood and the fluid was boiling out of the tank where you put the fluid. Just wondering what will cause it not to rise back up

2004 Mercedes, has been parked in my garage for (6) yrs. it has less then 40,000 miles, it says no malfunctions, I changed the battery, and it cranks, but, won't start.

I'm thinking ecm issue I had checked cap rotors ok but not sure if wire to coil is coming from ecm or if it's a cam position issue but one side is running ? Could really use your help. But I got power to coil but voltage on good coil is 14 on one wire and 8 on the other and the other coil wires I'm getting 13 and 1.35 on the other wire . Thanks for your time

Trunk opens normally with key fob or door switch but only stays open for 5 to 10 seconds then closes on its own. First reasonably slow/soft then quite firmly when the trunk assist engages.

locks on all doors are functional,key fob works on all doors but right rear will not open.


Is it a hard job and what is entailed in replacing them? Should I do both sides while I am at it? Thanks

I would like to know how much is labour on brake job with or with rotors

open now. can I get into the trunk through the back seat and move the stroller ? is their a fuse that could have blown to pop the trunk up ? any help possible

The cylinder on the 2004 Mercedes-benz driver side rear strut came off. Why? after checking the paasenger side they seem to be on very secure.My understanding is that this cylinder is for the leveling.

door wont close with assist have to slam..

its so low its not drivable the back it fine could it be becaue the switch is not grounded ?? or what other problems could there be? air height arm? pump leak ? struts? air compressor? control arm ?

This problem started when my engine fan refused to stop after turning off my ignition. I later discovered that the fan controller module was bad and i replaced it. After then the car has drain 3 new 12volt batteries and the problem still persist.

seem to start up now! will take for ride to recharge system

I need to know what to do to test it

My doors and my trunk doesn't close all the way
