I have a C Class 230, 2007 with 27K miles. Owned about 3 months. Car does not start time to time, and when is towed to dealer, it starts. Dealer can't find any problems and they can not do any repairs. I feel like i can not travel long distance in case it happens again. Any suggestions ? Thanks.

Let me understand that the problem is intermittent and engine is cranking but not started.
For that being said, there are 2 main things to check.
1-The start is not on since there is not fuel delivered to the Fuel distribution. Fuel pump is controlled by the pump relay. But the pump relay is activated by the a fuel pump control module which is an electronics integrated module. This is the one gives unstable condition.
2- The start is not on since there is no electric signal to deliver to the primary coil. And this one is controlled by the ignition module. This is an integrated electronic module can give unstable condition.
The last thing to check is the Crank shaft sensor condition since it has to give the signal for the above 2 things to work. Good luck

Don't drive this car with the engine light flashing. Take it to another shop. Apparently the shop you go to only have code readers. Scanner will pick up everything. It needs to be checked for the history codes. There really isn't a quick fix, especially with an 18 hour drive. I suggest you rent a car for the trip. And save your car.
Hi,I know it costs but if you can afford it have a diagnostics done on engine,if not,when car woms up when you start again try taking the plug off the maff sensor as this could also be problem if it starts ok its proberly the maff sensor,ether way sensers are not cheep,best of luck
OMG!!! I have the same problem with my 09 accord. Mine has died 3 times as well...and the breaks are sooooo loud. My friend has a 09 civic and her battery dies as well. Honda needs to fix this problem.. I regret buying a HONDA!!!! Dont buy one.
Definitely do the timing belt & plugs if not done already! Depending on how the job goes $300-$500. Rear drum brakes on these cars have a tendency to last a VERY long time(I've seen 150,000 miles) because the majority of the braking gets done in the front.
It is not normal for a car with 29,000 miles on it to consume this amount of oil in 10,000 miles. We usually change our oil between 3 and 5 thousand miles and thus may not notice small amounts consumed but certainly not 1-2 quarts. It is more likely that you are leaking oil, but if it is burning it, that is a real problem. If the car was pre-owned do a CARFAX. If it was wrecked, find out was was done. If the odometer is correct, this car needs to be inspected by a professional. I can tell you to look for unburned oil in the tailpipe, smoking exhuast, leaks from the oil pan and drain. Change the oil and filter and closely monitor the level.
