SOURCE: mercedes clk 320 will not start
i have a 2000 clk320. it would not start sometimes, the engine would crank but it wont start. but after an hour or so it would start. sometime i'll get somewhere park, and come out an hour later and the engine would not start. if your having the same problem, take it to autoparts store ex: autozone or kragen. they could check your battery for free. and if its not the battery. than it could either be your fuel pump. or the crank position sensor. good luck. hopefully this help.

Mercedes have purposely not put a transmission dipstick in their cars...to STOP any unauthorised persons from tampering with transmission fluid levels.
Electronic transmissions are extremely temperamental - if incorrect type, level is too low (or too high), this will accelerate premature wear and tear, not to mention erratic shifting behaviour.
For this reason, only Mercedes service agents have the required workshop tool (ie dipstick) which they insert into a tube in the transmission, to check levels.
If you happen to obtain the correct tool for your own use....please ensure you use only Mercedes specified fluids....and NEVER overfill the transmission case.

Testimonial: "very very help full"
If you have a turbo, a shaft seal may be leaking some oil. Otherwise, the valve seals may be hard or worn enough to pass some oil during 'off' time. As long as it smokes only at startup, there is probably little to worry about until it begins smoking all of the time--then it will be time to replace the leaking seals which can be done without removing the heads. You might try a seal-softener additive in the oil or use 'high mileage' oil which contains seal softener. It also helps loosen sticking rings as well. Hope this helps.
