98 E320 Mercedes: Car runs and then shuts off and won't restart

It will restart after some time (anywhere from 5 minutes to 45 minutes).
I tried to boost the octane thinking that it was bad gas with too much ethenol, and I changed the fuel filter, but still have the same problem.

E320 key won't start 1st try


It is a key issue most likely, try unlocking the car and taking a little more time to insert key into igniton than you normally do to see if that works. It can be a coding/timing issue in the anti-theft logic and most times replacing the key is all that is needed. otherwise it is the EIS acronym for electronic ignition switch which is a major control unit for the starting and anti-theft system.

Sounds like the crankshaft position sensor needs to be replaced. They are a common problem with the Mercedes. That sensor is the one that the engine control module looks at to see if the engine is running. When they get hot and stop producing a signal the engine control module thinks the engine is not running and shuts of the fuel. After waiting awhile they cool down and the vehicle will start up again. I've changed many of them when I worked at the dealer. Tricky part is when there working and the car is running there will be no check engine light on or code stored. Usually will only have the code when the car won't start. Let me know what you end up finding out on it but that would be the first place to look and probably the cheapest.

Sounds like you either have a blown head gasket, cracked head, craked cylinder wall or if equipped a faulty oil cooler. You can try to replace the head gasket and hope that fixes the problem.

Need to replace both batteries in Benz E320 2003


Hi, Joe here The best batteries for your vehicle is the dealership. It is the exact size and rating. You may spend a little more money but they are the best. I don't even know if they have them anywhere aftermarket.
