You do not have a lot of information, but the first thing to do is pull the coil wire if single coil, or in sequence if seperate ignition coils, hold the wire about a quarter inch from a metal part and have someone crank the engine. A bright blue spark should shoot from the wire to the metal. No spark, indicates a bad coil. On models like yours it would be best to pull a spark plug wire, insert a screw driver where the plug was and hold the screwdriver near metal to check for spark. If no spark there are several items which control it. The crankshaft position sensor which tells the computer the position of the piston and asks it to fire the plug. If this is bad the vehicle will not start. f you have spark make sure you are getting fuel. You should hear the electric fuel pump in the tank running when you turn the key on. Buy some engine starting fluid and spray it into the air cleaner while cranking the car. If it tries to start you know it is a fuel problem and not ignition. To do anymore I would have to know the results of these test before doing any more diagnostics.

Starting problems with my ML320 Mercedes.


Replaced a crank sensor on a similar model. Easy to do.
See if tach moves when cranking.
If it is starting and not just cranking, then shutting off, sounds like it might be an ignition switch. On some models, the contacts for start are different than for run, Start ones are good and it starts, when key turns to run, it turns off. That would be my next move to test.

Starter doesn't run long enough for my car to start. It only turns twice; I need at least three rev's. How do I adjust starter run time?


The starter run time is non adjustable. It should turn over as long as you hold the key in the start position

My 2000 dodge wont start battery is good checked fuses plugs fuel pump is getting gas it will run for a few days then stop


might want to check the starter. the parts stores can test it once its removed. does it turn over or it wont run? people confuse this. if it wont start that is a starting problem. if it wont run that is a fuel or spark problem. to total different thing. if it turns over the starter is good. not running after it turns it can be a number of things. crank sensor or cam sensor. bad ground or many other things. need more information what it is doing?

Engine turns,but doesnt run


You have a problem getting fuel to the engine. Check your fuel pump (start by checking the fuse) to be sure it's working and check your fuel filter to be sure it's not clogged. ALso, be sure your air intake filter isn't clogged. If everything looks good then start checking the rest of your fuel delivery system.
