Question about 1994 Mercedes-Benz C-Class

1 Answer

My petrol 1994 c220 has a warm starting problem. After a short journey, say, to pick up petrol, it often will not restart. Never lets me down when running and no sign of missfires etc. Once the problem occurs, it will not restart for between 5 mins and 4 days! Help! (please)

Hi there,

Well normally, a car's engine idle varies depending on the operating temperature of the engine. When the engine is cold, the idle is higher to facilitate engine warm-up; when warm, the idle drops. A car that has an idle that gets stuck at one speed (normally on high idle) and fails to change is usually a sign of a carburetor problem, generally a problem with the carburetor idle solenoid. A malfunctioning carburetor can negatively impact a car's engine idle. By interfering with engine air/ fuel mixture, engine idle speed, and fuel flow, a carburetor problem can cause a car's engine idle to become choppy and irregular and, in many instances, cause a car to shut off. So first we suggest to check the carb. then we go on fuel pump.......... Please post comments for more help or information.........

Good Luck!!

Thanks

Took car to garage on sat I had trouble windows didnt go up when started car battery flat charged it since then petrol light isonpetrol gaug stays red dash tells me the miles petrol i had how can fix


If the window problem is fixed then I would disconnect the battery for 10 minutes and then reconnect it. The ECU (the brain) might need re-setting and needs to re-learn a few settings. Drive around the block a couple of times and see if everything re-adjusts itself to normal. Bear in mind , though, that the memory for fuel consumption will have re-set so that short journey will be seen as the norm and it will give readings for mileage left worked out on that figure. A more economical journey will be worked out when you do one.

Mercedes c220 auto 1995. car will not go over 70


93-95 Mb was forced to use biodegradable insulation on its wiring in there cars by the US. Try looking at the engine wiring harness because they can short out. Also the Throttle assembly has the same wiring, it would cause all those problems.

I have put 8 litres of diesel in my 2005 renault scenic i have topped it up with 25 litres of petrol and run it for about 20 miles so far will this be ok once the the tank is empty


The 8 liters of diesel mixed with the 25 liters will make the vehicle smoke a little but if you continue to dilute the diesel/petrol mixture with petrol as your tank level goes down you should have minimal problems. When the tank gets to half you should refill it with petrol for at least two times. The main two problems I could think of that would cause you any concern would be the fuel filter getting partially plugged and the injectors gumming up. By continuing to dilute the tank with petrol you should be okay because the filter and injectors will clean themselves up while you drive. Just make sure you do not take any short drives. Let the engine warm up to operating temperature until you have ran at least two complete tanks of petrol through it.

1994 C220 mercedes stalling problems


check your main harness wire. The harness wire becomes brittle and will eventually short circuit your car. Stalling and hard starting is the initial symptom. If not replaced soon, your car will smoke and eventually affect your computer box

No restart when warm audi 100


Do you checked the petrol filter? It can be simple as that.
check the MAF, the spark plugs and cabling, air filter, petrol pump.
I had the same problem with mine (same year, same model), I cleaned all the air intake system, fuel line, and now it's perfect (even needing to change petrol filter, i didn't changed it yet). Careful cleaning the MAF, if you don't know how to do it don't do it, ask an expert near you.
If you can't solve the problem this way, search for air or fuel leaks.

I solved mine cleaning the fuel line and the air intake system.

Lacetti Chevrolet. Malfunction Indicator light is on.


It may be the same problem as my 56 plate Lacetti. The yellow malfunction light came on two weeks ago and two days ago, both times shortly after filling up with petrol to the brim, and I suspect it is the petrol sensor as I only clicked the petrol cap once after fitting it back - the handbook says click it several times. The yellow light also came on yesterday after taking the car a short journey so it is likely that the sensor is still picking up a small escape of petrol, but the car has been fine today with no light appearing now that the fuel level has dropped a bit. Like you, I have not noticed any drop in power with the light on.

Yes, a c220 engine will fit, but you will also have to use the ECM and wiring harness from the c220
