The fuel filter may be clogged. If this is carberated, you could have sticky floats and/or carb is gummed up and needs to be removed, dismantled and the parts soaked in parts cleaner for an hour.
Do check the spark, You can remove the plug, put back on coil wire, place the electrode of the plug about 1/8" away from the cylinder head bolt or other metal surface, turn the engine over and observe for a good strong spark. If it is weak, change the plug. If you have an intermittent spark, then the coil may need to be changed. You can test it with a volt meter.

    I will search for a diagram.
    But I can tell you if you follow your fuel lines from the fuel tank, it is between the fuel tank and carberator.

    Fuel filter is located on underbody, concealed within a black plastic
    cover, on right hand side, just behind where the base of right hand seat
    would be. It is in a bracket with the fuel pump, hung on little rubbers

    YOUR fuel filter is between gas tank and carberator.

    Sorry if you got my response for a car fuel filter that was meant for someone else. I am still searching for a diagram

    Actually, if your is the Mercedes with 4.9 Liter SLK 230, your fuel filter is in the same spot as I had suggested for someone else! :)

1999 slk 230 kompressor convertible top sticks halfway down, hydralic fluid looks brown is it possible fluid needs to be changed?


no the fluid doesn't need to be changed. it most likely is not seeing one of the micro-switches for the convertible top or the windows are not syncronized meaning the one touch/express mode is not working. to sync windows just open and close windows using the 1st detent on the window switch. when the window is fully closed hold switch for 3secs longer. as for the micro-switches the wiring sometimes breaks behind the headliner.

Mercedes slk 230 kompressor supercharger doesn't kick in when gas pedal depressed to gain speed.


only a turbo "kicks in".a supercharger is a compressor that uses the speed of the engine, so the faster the engine the more pressure....use the gearbox for rapid acceleration....

Just but an Mercedez SLK 230 Kompressor 1999 and the hard top will not go down.


First check that you have oil on the hydraulic pump that it is inside the trunk on the rear right fender the oil should be between the marks. If thats ok check when you put the ignition on if the switch that operates the roof is on, should be off, on means that something is wrong, if blinks 6 times one of the 5 or 7 switchs are not closed, check one by one. check the two that close the trunk at the middle, the cover, the trunk limit switch, the trunk switch

SLK stalling problem


no if the fuel pump is failing it wont start. what about fuel filter ? what you can do is find a shop with a scope and they can check the fuel pump on it and look at the wave pattern and can tell you good or bad. but when it happens and you cant hear it it is time to check it properly before it leaves you stranded.
