what cause my S420 Mercedes to lose power when accelerate from stop it sound like the plug missing fire it does it after driven a few miles stopping to a stop it get worse as I go along and stop at a red light or stop for any purpose.Sometimes when I shut car off and let engine cool down about30 to 45 minutes the car will run better.
heater dont work and shifter dont work it go in different spot drive is revers 3 is drive. what can i do.
I've owned my 1995 s-420 since 1999, and have been relatively satisfied with it. My main concern is that there is a slight vibration that I cannot get rid of. I've balanced the tires, replaced all four tires, had the drive train checked all to no avail. This has been going on for the last 8 years. It looks like it is something that I will have to live with.
The heating system is slow warming the car up. However, after twenty to thirty minutes it becomes comfortable. The engine seems to be okay, but I have only 91,000 miles on it. I have experienced problems with the oil lines leading to the lifters in the heads, the lifters would give a slight tapping sound and I would immediately take it to Herb Gordens Mercedes shop department. Each time it cost approximately $1,200 to repair. My car is garage kept and pampered. It goes without saying, I like it very much. However, if I were to purchase another car in the future, I think it would be a Lexus LS-460. From what I've read, that seems to be the most reliable car on the road today.
