Question about 2000 Mercedes-Benz S-Class

Open Question

W220 S500 mercedes sometimes the car sits too low, but some time for days it is fine. When its low and i start up the car, it rises and then i have no warning. But sometimes when i am driving it goes

In my W220 - S500 (2000) sometimes the car sits too low and when i start it up it gives me a warning that car is too low. But in a few seconds it rises up to the normal height. Then it might be fine for a few days. And then again sometimes when it is too low and i start it up it rises and then while i am driving it it gives me the warning that car too low. Then I park up and raise up the car and it is okay again. It doesn't happen all the time but intermittently. So i dont know what to do. I know if i take it to a mechanic they will tell me all the problems in the world as that is what they do best to rip people off and make more money. So i need some honest opinion. Thanks.

SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: My mercedes Benz C 220 stalls when I come to a stop or in park .

Is the AC on? The compressor can take alot of power and make it lope. Engine mounts can make it shake. coils, cap, rotor and wires for tune up at a minimum. EZL if you can find one cheap. MAF also can cause issue. If it is a 1991-1995 check the engine wiring harness as they get brittle and degrade.

#1 reason is running the car low on fuel, like 1/4 tank or lower, the next is running it out of gas completely. The reason for this causing failure is simple, the fuel pump is cooled and lubricated by the fuel it pumps and sits in.

M 2007 mercedes c230 will sometimes not start. When I turn the key it sticks in that position and trys to start but doesn't and I must turn the key off to make it stop. If I let it sit it will start...

Likely a bad ignition tumbler, considering the key "sticking" in the start position.

Best bet is to hit the dealer and ask one of their service advisors if they've run into this problem before.

Very first thing is to check the battery and alternator are o.k. If battery voltage is low the ecu will not allow the starter motor to operate. it may be that the central locking is just draining the battery enough when you open the car that it won't start, then after a short period the battery recovers and so the car starts. low battery voltage can also effect the engine management.
