All of the suspension is low or only one of the suspension?
if only one of the suspension very low... most the the problem is the air bellow in the suspension strut crack.. need to replace new suspension strut.

I LOVED my S500 but had way too many problems with the suspension and actually considered selling the car for a couple of weeks. I ended up converting to a passive coil spring system from - I was able to convert all 4 wheels for less money than replacing all the necessary air components would have been for ONE WHEEL. the kit came with a lifetime warranty and my shop charged me about an hour per wheel to install.. so not so bad. I have been very impressed with the ride quality (I actually prefer it to the air ride suspension now.. its smooth and surprisingly responsive) I hope this helped!!

Let the head rule the heart...the S320 diesel. The engines are well built with only the exhaust feed-pipe from the exhaust manifold to the EGR valve needing to be occasionally cleaned out. The Mercedes diesels offer surprisingly good performance, longevity and excellent fuel economy. The S500 is sumptuous but at a cost; the expense is like standing under a shower tearing up bank notes.

How difficult to change fuel pump on mercedes benz S320 1996,olso no reverse i'm trying to buy this car for $ mutch cost to repair it . thank you.

2500 dollars ,you joking or what a petrol one at that ,petrol engined vehicle isnt worth a light ,diesel yes but a gas guzzling CO2 emmiting monster ,with the cost of road tax as high as it is on this pollution machine .No its not worth anything if fact the present owner should pay you to take it away.This vehicle in the UK would sell for about 100/500pounds if your lucky and the top end price is if its working ok with a full years road tax and roadworthy in spain about 1000euros or so, now a diesel in full working condition with papers in order and roadworthyness certificate about 2500euros .Dont touch this motor unless its given to you for FREE .You are joking about the price?? having a wind up ?? taking the proverbial pi??
