Mercedes clk 200 petrol 1999.guys I really need help quickly please. Only brought the car yesterday and already it's a goner. Driving home it was very sluggish. this morning again sluggish....


If it runs good in park or at idle but is slugish when you try to accelerate it is likely a fuel issue. I would start with a new fuel filter. When you press on the gas you need more fuel pressure and if the pump cant get more through the clogged filter you will get that. If it runs bad even at idle it is likely a spark issue and needs new plugs and wires. I would give it a good tune up - oil change, spark plugs (platinum or iridium), plug wires, air filter, fuel filter, PCV Valve and see how she runs after that.

its could be the fuel pump, if its going bad then it could be causing stall and a gas hose could be bad to and is only allowing a little gas to motor causing it to stall also

1995 ford contour cranks but won't start, change fuel filter, fuel pump, and spark plugs. Not getting any spark.


Have you ever heard of testing before replacing parts ? Fuel pressure an flow tesing , testing the electrical circuit for the fuel pump , amp draw testing , voltage drop testing etc... Thier are no magical fixes in auto repair . No spark ! check B+ voltage an ground circuits for the ignition system , Ignition System Designs Operation and Testing an SD Premium video

You've already eliminated the spark plug & wireset, distributor cap & rotor.
Sounds like your car needs a tune-up, specifically, the PCV (positive crankcase ventilation) valve, and/of the EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculation) valve.

Components checked/replaced during a tune-up are:
air filter
motor oil
motor oil filter
breather filter
fuel filter(s)
fuel strainer
PCV valve
EGR valve
spark plugs
spark plug wires
ECM or distributor cap & rotor
cabin air filter
transmission oil filter
transmission oil
engine coolant
check all vacuum hoses and lines

Troubleshooting the no-start condition - from the 1990 Mitsu Mighty Max Repair Manual:

Priority Action Part Type -- Cause
1 Inspect Battery -- Battery Discharged or Faulty.
2 Inspect Battery Cable -- Corroded, Broken, Shorted or Poorly Connected Battery Cable.

I HAVE A 2003 KIA SORENTO LX & IT IS USING TO MUCH GAS LATELY>>>HOW WILL I KNOW IF I NEED MY FUEL PUMP REPLACED? WHERE IS THE PCV VALVE LOCATED?


the fuel pump will not cause bad gas mileage.the spark plugs may need changing,fuel filter,air filter,plug wires(basically a tune-up),or the thermostat probably needs changing as this can cause poor gas mileage as it won`t allow the motor to get to proper operating temperature(computer monitors temp)and commands fuel injectors on longer(spray more fuel).driving habits change over time look at this also.cold whether driving also will use more fuel.pcv valve i can`t help you,maybe a parts store will show were it is if it has one.the only time you change the fuel pump is when it gets noisy or it quits altogether,or the pressure is good but the fuel volume is not to specs.

check the two hoses under the plenum by the throttle body one large one to the pcv valve and a small one to the fuel evap. system the most likely are cracked or split and colapsed thus cousing all sorts of problems (replace them)
