1998 bmw 540i having a misfire on cylinder 5 changed the plugs and coil packs. It ran fine for a couple days, then it began again, giving me a check engine, and it's idling rough at low rpms.

Is the same cylinder causing the problem? If so take a close look at the spark plug for fuel fouling. The cylinder may be over fueled causing plug fouling. You may also have a bad coil or defective spark plug. Try swapping coil and plug with one from adjacent cylinder to see if misfire changes to that cylinder

How do I fix the center lock vacuum pump on Mercedes Benz c220 w202 1994,

I have had this problem on C180 ...fixed by removing rear door panel then taking the line for vacuum off lock then using an old hypodermic syringe sucked the air out and blew pressure back in this can sometimes reset but certainly gains access to need to access the panel in the boot usually above wheel arch on battery side...and check the vacuum servo for water ingress or blocked filter.these units need replacing if total failure.again a scrapyard or eBay is probably your best bet.

Check the spark plugs, the spark plug wires and the coil packs. If they are good then the misfire could be caused by the Mercedes ecu computer. If you are not sure go to for more information about ecu misfire problems.

Why is my C180 2011 model does not start,yet the key functions well.

This could be the ecu control unit. Mercedes Ecm Repair
Sometimes a bad ecu will make a Mercedes misfire or not start. But the problem could also be related to a bad ignition key. You will need Star diagnostics to troubleshoot the vehicle.

The engine light came on in my 2003 Honda civic LX. My mechanic stated code was misfiring on cylinder 3. He changed the coil pack and reset the engine light. The car still seems to misfire when it is...

If you pull the plug wire from the spark plug on cylinder 3, is there any oil, water, or antifreeze in there? Have you removed the plug to see what condition it is in? If it is black or oil-fouled, you should replace it, or better yet, the entire set of spark plugs. When the coil pack was replaced, was the plug wire replaced as well? I have seen a stuck fuel injector cause your problem before, because the cylinder does not get the right amount of fuel, running either too lean, or too rich.

What does that mean and why does the service engine light stays on

The service engine light is on because the computer has seen a problem with the operation of the engine systems, what happens is the computer is always monitoring all systems and when theres a problem the computer stores a code explaining what system has failed, for example only there may be a code po302 cylinder 2 misfiring. this would tell you that the number 2 cylinder is misfiring, with a little testing you would then check it out to see why this is happening.the first thing you need to do is have the codes read, there are many auto part stores that will scan the computer and give you a print out of the codes, if you write back and list the codes i would be able to help you further, good day.

check your wire harness on the top of the engine. Volvo must have bought harnesses from Mercedes. The insulation just cracks and disintegrates, then the wires short. Not good for an ignition system.Once they short It can fry the circuit for that cylinder in the computer. Does not set a code other than Misfire.

1993 mercedes sl300 convertable

The early 300 SL suffered from dodgy HT leads and spark plugs if not regularly maintained, the problem with Mercedes Benz though is that the cars have so many features that it is almost impossible to diagnose without seeing the car. Some things to try (in this order) are : - Spark plugs, Ht leads, remove and clean Distributer Cap, replacement of HFM sensor (common fault), if none of these help then faults have been known in throttle valves and fuel pumps/filters

Happy fault finding
