Question about 1999 Mercedes-Benz CLK

1 Answer

1999 CLK320 occasionally just shuts down for about 10 minutes

After driving about 10 minutes and then slowing down for a traffic light, the car will stop without any warning messages. When trying to restart, there is no clicking noise or sound that the engine is trying to turn over. Then after about 5 or 10 minutes, it starts again. Happened two consecutive days and then next day ran fine. Repair shop is currently trying to figure out problem but there are no codes. Any suggestions?

I had the same problem with the same car year and make.. it ended up being a "rev sensor" something like that or an "idle" sensor".

Engine shuts donw and "Fail Safe" message is displayed.


first thing you should do is have it plugged into a scanner to see what the problem is.places like auto zone and advance auto parts do it for free. then if it is the throttle position sensor its located on top of the engine not hard to do.but if its one of the four oxygen located on the exhaust sensors depends which one it is but usually requires special socket to remove them without stripping them, very hard.

Trans shifts very hard after 5 minutes of stop and go traffic


A reason for hard shifting could be a problem with many things with various degrees of seriousness. It could be your ATF( automatic transmission fluid) is low or broken down and old. This would cause the hardness and the reason for stop and go traffic effecting it. Another possibility is your transmission is just shot, and the timing gears inside are worn and not properly shifting at the correct RPM causing a **** during shifting.

Some possibilties, not all!

1999 Dodge Intrepid engine jerks, cuts off when slows down/stops


Amattison:

Make sure you are using an original key. I made a copy of my key, and the copy will not work. It will start, but then shut off. Appearantly there is a chip or something in the original.

Engine cuts off in traffic when car slows.


Sounds like it could be an ignition module breaking down.

1996 Camry 100 km stalling


You have one of two very common problems.
Number one may be a stuck open EGR valve
Number two would be a failing Idle Air Control valve (IAC).
Try this: Open the hood & locate the EGR valve, close to the firewall, behind the intake. Find & take with you a small hammer. The next time that it happens, open the hood & tap on the EGR valve. If it is sticking "open" the tapping may dislodge the carbon particles that are keeping it open.When the EGR valve is open, exhaust is getting into the intake at idle, and this will def stall out the car.
There is no repair to the IAC valve, it would need to be replaced if it is bad.
One of these two scenarios will cure your problem, I see it every day.
