Question about 2005 Mercedes-Benz Mercedes Benz E320 Cdi

1 Answer

Check engine light comes on after last 3 visits to the dealer.

The Dealer Inskip in Warwick, RI charges $160.00 per hour to check engine light. Always at least 2 hours. So far 5 glow plugs have been replaced!! HELP!!! Ordered the car new in 2005, Love it but, it lives at the dealers. 3 new batteries, navigation system problems for years. Any ideas out here, I hoped to keep it a long time, but am running out of patience. Rick

    Canbruce75,I took your advice and called a few parts stores to no avail. They are very limited in my area. In the end I went and talked to the dealer who repaired the car with no charge at all and even picked up the charge for the Glow plug before this one. Have to say in the end Inskip really came through. Thanks again for your suggestions.

I'm not questioning the integrity of your dealer, but why not get a second opinion? I would take the car to an autoparts store and have them read the codes stored in the computer. Most parts stores will do the scan for free and will reset the check engine light if there are no faults noted. See what fault codes their scan comes up with based on the dealer findings. There's no such thing as too much information. Hope this helped and best wishes.

How much does it cost on average to fix a gasket on a 2002 Chevy Malibu ?


It depends on the gasket , a valve cover gasket would be less then an oil pan gasket ! Both valve cover gaskets $150- $ 190 , Intake manifold gasket $ 547 - $698 , Head gaskets $1,000 - $ 1,200 oil pan gasket $ 211 - $ 269 These are just estimates , not all repair shops charge the same . Here in Pennsylvanian local shops like pep boys charge $115.00 per hour , AAMCO does general repairs too , an they charge $ 95.00 per hour . I found the local Chevy dealer to be one of the cheapest around at $86.00 per hour ! It just depends on where you live ! you have to check around , Do let them bully you either , Ask what they charge to do you particular gasket an if they give you the run around tell them you'll try someplace else ! They always say well we will need to check it out first ! good luck hope this helps an may god bless you !!!!!!

Is there 2005 honda civic software update for po128 error code


I think we all just live in a world of automobiles,that have
too much high tech technology,when not so much is needed,
just to keep exhaust emissions at an acceptable level

At least you kept going back to the dealer & not keep driving
as most people do

You gave the dealer techs several chances at resolving the issues,
all be it, expensive, to say the least.

I don't see anything where you went wrong, or they let you down,
assuming your good to go & no more issues

I assume that the head gasket was something that only moved
& leaked internally under certain conditions & I don't know why or
when the ECU came up as a problem,they don't fail often

When "check engine" light stay


Check engine could be any of many faults but instead of going to dealer, stop by a local Autozone, Advance,etc auto parts store and have them perform a FREE fault scan. They'll come out to your car, plug in their scanner, read the codes, print you out faults found (in ENGLISH - not code) and advise you, then they'll reset your lights - best part - FREE

2003 Nissan Altima 2.5S, Check Engine Light Problem.


this problem could be caused by the mass air flow censor, i had the same problem with my car. it is really pricey at the dealer so you might want to check elsewhere for this part. I found one at a scrap yard for 85% less that the dealer and i also got life time warranty, the dealer does not offer any warranty on this part.
