1999 Mercedes E430. Sometimes it will start,

1999 Mercedes E430. Sometimes it will start, sometime it just cranks and won't start. Leave it alone and next time it may start. On the information bar it will start listing oil change, service needed, etc. Can be driving it and hit a bump and blower motor will stop. Other times, it's great. Any ideas?

The crankshaft position sensors tend to fail. Symptoms of this are: The engine will crank—but not start—especially when the engine is warm. The car may start again if it is left to cool off, but it may run roughly or have poor performance. Communicating these specific symptoms to your technician can save diagnostic time.

1999 E-430. Why does it periodically fail to start?


Does it try to start, but not catch? That sounds like a fuel pump going bad if you press the gas pedal twice and it starts. You should not have to press the gas pedal in an e430 to get it to start up.

We are having trouble locating the hood release button on our 2000 mercedes e430. do you have any answers?


There should be a red lever under the steering wheel, VERY close to the firewall. Sometimes it is hard to see because they tend to put it up into the dash a little.

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.
