Question about 2002 Mercedes-Benz C-Class

2 Answers

2002 c240, my engine will start then die,wont restart for 30 mins

When my car sits for a few hours it will start up and run fine for a little while and then will sometimes just die on me, or if i drive it for a few minutes then turn it off and try to restart it right away,it wont start up again for about half and hour.i replaced the battery and the alternater and it is still giving me problems.then i heard that it might be the seat control modules so i un hooked them and it is still doing the same thing,i am open to suggestions my engine seems to be running ok and im pretty sure it is something with the electrical.

2002 Malibu stalls while driving, doesn't over heat. But can start smelling gas fumes before it stalls. usually wait about 5 mins then restarts. in higher elevation runs fine but in lower elevatio


It sounds like the catalytic converter could possibly be almost completely plugged up not allowing the exhaust to leave the engine like it should. It just builds up in the cylinder head and when it gets too much in it built up and there's no where to go, it'll stall the engine. By letting it sit for a few minutes, it gives the exhaust time to find a way out and the car will restart.

In park the engine dies; only will run if given gas


It sounds like there is a problem with the Idle Air Control (IAC) valve. Its job is to open and let air into the manifold when the throttle is closed at idle. If it does not open, the engine dies at idle. The IAC is mounted on the throttle body. Possibly the valve is clogged or stuck, in which case it could be ok again if it is removed and cleaned. Or it is broken, and needs to be replaced. Or, there is a problem with its electrical connection, that needs to be traced. Good luck, let me know if you have any questions.

Car starts and runs fine then after 30 min or so runs rough


Check the primary and secondary resistance on your coil and resistance and gap on your spark plugs. Sounds like you have a high temp foul out.
