    I have a Mercedes-Benz 250-D Elegannce model 1994 (Diesel). The engine suddely stops while you are driving and slows down or stops at a light signal. This very dangerous as the car stopps sudddely without any warning. It starts again after canking a few time. But it is really a pain. I have alway made bad experinces having the car serviced in an autorised Mercedes-benz garage here in Switzerland. If any one could help me to diagnose this cause of this problem, it might help me get it fixed without having to pay too much for it.

2006 Barina manual. Driving, suddenly clutch doesn't engage on take off. Waited and then it grated and worked. Temp of car suddenly rises, air con then blows hot air. Stop, engine super hot


The only scenario that i can think of that could create all of your issues is your clutch is and has been slipping for some time. All other train of thoughts really don't make sence. This would give issue either selecting a gear whilst driving or possible slecting gear and engine speed raising but vehicle not moving from a stand still start on sharp pull away. Engine speed would be running higher than required most of the time which would increase engine temp considerably. Due to extreem engine temp your air con would probably switch off as to not put additional load on your engine creating even higher tempratures. My advise is It really needs a visual / test drive to confirm a diagnosis by a qualified person for this information to be confirmed. I hope this makes sence good luck.

Is it safe to drive my BMW Z3 roadster with a broken engine mount bracket?


Only if you wear your seat belt, as the vehicle could come to a sudden unexpected stop as it sheds moving parts while you are driving down the road. Don't forget to stop and pick up your axles and engine, you will need them to make it to your destination.

An orange warning light shaped like an engine has come on what does it mean


Engine warning light

eng_man_light_72.jpg Illuminates when the ignition is switched on. It should extinguish as soon as the engine starts.
If it illuminates with the engine running, it indicates a malfunction with the engine management system. Have this checked as soon as possible.
If it flashes when driving, reduce the vehicle speed immediately until the light illuminates constantly. If it continues to flash, avoid heavy acceleration and high engine speed, stop the vehicle and have it checked immediately.
On some vehicles this light may be red - again stop the vehicle and seek assistance.
If it is safe to do so, try stopping the vehicle, switching off the engine, wait two minutes, then restarting the engine to reset the engine management system.
With the light illuminated, the vehicle is still safe to drive as long as no other faults are apparent with the engine. Have the vehicle checked by a dealer or garage as soon as possible to avoid any damage being caused to the catalytic converter

Car will start fine but will shut off as soon as I place in gear.


Here are the most common causes of surges, stalls at stops, low erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation, it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.
