I have a 1997 mercedes benz that stalled and won't start what could be wrong.

I had the same problem with my 1997 Mercedes Benz C280, the problem was the catalytic converter and ignition coil or spark oil.

Mercedes c220 elegance engine cranks but won't start. There is no spark at the plugs could be the coils or what?

most likely it is the ignition spark control and not just the coils. chances that all you coils went out at the same time is nil. ignition module i would check around for prices but a new one might be a dealer only part..check the web....

Hello i have a 1993 Mercedes Benz 400sel. i have changed the distributor caps, rotors, and spark plugs/wires. it is only running on 4 cylinders right, now and i don't know why. There is no spark on all 4...

HI, did you try checking the ignition coils. I had the same problem in my car I replace the one ignition coil where there was no power and that solve the problem. try not to buy cheap ones those will blow fast. you can find the Bosh original ones in the internet for a fare price. today at the dealer are about $212.00 each.

Spark plug location 2000 c230 kompressor gasoline mercedes benz

Today's modern engines bury them in the center of the engine under the ignition coils. Most coils are screwed on the the valve cover by simple screws. Unplug wire from coil if possible. Remove screws and wiggle and turn coil. A long insulator should come out with coil. About 8" down the hole is the spark plug.

Mercedes c200 elegance 1996 model mis-firing on cylinders 1-4

I beleive your firing order is 1 3 4 2. 1 and 4 are companion cylinders-meaning the piston is up or down at the same time i.e. compression and exhaust stroke both pistons are up and even on the exhaust stroke the ignition fires in order to burn unburnt fuel/ h ve you checked your trigger. There is a good coil testing tool that is placed over the coil and has a magnetic pickup that allows you to see if the coil is being triggered-just because you have power doesn't mean that you will have spark. I would replace your ignition wires and look at your wiring harness very carefully- if it is very brittle and you see bare wires exposed that is your most likley problem because the trigger is working for 1 and 3 and has the crank senser input for all for spark plugs and the cam senser is used for ignition advance and your fuel injection system. try wiggling your harness and see if your coils start to work. wireharnesses are a major problem on mercedes benz vehicles of that era. I hope I have been helpful
