Engine oil level sensor implausible,1997 MB E55 AMG

need help on this,above is the fault code defination,checking the oil level with my scan tool: it reads too low but checking the dip stick its ok,the real trouble is that I can't find the oil level sensor,I thought it'll be somewhere attached to the sump.If I could get the component test procedure on that and the component location I'd be very greatful.

SOURCE: CL55 AMG or CLK55 AMG? Opinions

2003 CL55 with the AMGV8K engine is a superior car. A different league. Like all things, there are compromises. It handless less well than a CLK55. The CLK55 is not a track car by any means either. I'm sure the CLK55 outhandles a CL65 also, but the two cars are not in the same planet.

Those codes do appear to deal with the mass airflow sensor. The MAF sensor is probably the "hot wire" type where a thin wire is suspended inside the body of the sensor and is heated with electrical current. The amount of air passing over the wire is directly proportional to the resistance of the wire and that resistance data is calculated. The MAF sensor, by itself, cannot determine the air mass supplied to the intake plenum. One or more other sensors are used in conjunction to equate these values. The oxygen sensor(s), Manifold Absolute Pressure (MAP) sensor, the Intake Air Temperature (IAT) sensors may all play a part in this fault reading.

There are reliable methods to test the MAF sensor. One well takled about method is to tap the MAF sharply with a screwdriver handle while the engine is running. If the engine dies, the MAF is faulty. This can detect a physical defect in the wire and a few other things but do do assume that, after repeated blows to the MAF with your dead blow hammer for good measure, that the MAF is at 100%. I will research some text on testing these sensors on that particular model and post links to any information and diagnostic data I find.

SOURCE: how to tackle transmission oil change on '97 Mercedes E200

Hello, Check the kickdown switch that is located on the floor below accelerator pedal. Pull the carpet back under the pedal and you will see a black switch with a 2 pin connector. Disconnect the switch and see if this helps. If it does help, your kickdown switch is stuck in the down position and needs replacement. This will cause it not to shift until you are at a high RPM.
If you find this information to be correct would you please enter a "fixya" rating.
Thanks, Gator241

OP: Posted by Barbara Frye on May 11, 2016
Barbara. get car serviced? at an ASE shop or dealer?
you cant fix this lacking tools, ill not try to guess.
did you first erase those errors (push reset on tool)?
and see if they return, ???? this is first.
have you had work on the pump/tank area.
in a collision?

here is why.
first check fuses. any blown.?
then do the cluster self test, no tools needed.
posted here 100s of time, need that?, or the free link to the test in the FSM book? posted that too 100s of times here. (ask or search)

next is scan it, see all errors, not just the 2 you see now.
a real scan tool shows all errors and for sure those that might be related, and any CAN-BUS errors.
a real scan tool can see all JEEP extended DTC errors.
also post if the instrument cluster is acting odd. in any way.
does the fuel gauge work? can you tell?
needle steady and correct for reality,

QOD: questions of the day,
does engine run?
does car drive, correctly day and night with bright head lights?
does any other feature of the car fail. any at all.
no charge lamp failures in cluster, nor volt meter below 14v in the cluster meter of same name (volts)???

Theory of Operation
The Front Control Module isn't receiving a fuel volume signal over CAN B from the Cluster Module. The FCM has
to send the PCM a fuel volume signal over CAN C. The signal the FCM sends over CAN C is implausible.
my guess is 1403 is the real error. (primary)
the fuel sender might be glitching,

here is that sensor,
in the tank , part of pump, part of fuel rack. in tank.

Ford f350 crew cab super duty 7.3 diesel runs rough and turns off randomly while driving sometimes restarts in neutral allot of times i have to stop and put it in park turn key completely off position I...

This is a case of which came first.
The stalling is most likely caused by your Cam Sensor. The description for Diagnostic Test Code (DTC) P0340 is "cam sensor circuit malfunction" This is a VERY COMMON problem on 7.3L diesel engines. Ford has had a lot of trouble with these.

The description for DTC P0470 is "exhaust back-pressure sensor circuit malfunction" This code can be caused by the EBP sensor, the circuits to the EBP sensor or a faulty Powertrain Control Module (PCM)

The description of DTC P1211 is "Injection Control Pressure (ICP) above or below desired" This can be caused by the engine stalling. It can also be caused by several other things, including low engine oil level or a possible faulty PCM. (Check you engine oil level FIRST.)

The troubleshooting charts needed to properly diagnose DTCs P0470 and P1211 depend on whether these codes are Key-On-Engine-Off (KOEO), Key-On-Engine-Running (KOER), or "continuous memory" codes. If you retrieved these codes with a generic OBD scan tool, then they are definately present in "continuous memory". However, a scan tool with the capabilities to read KOEO and KOER codes MUST be used to determine if these are "HARD" or "INTERMIITTENT" faults. The troubleshooting steps vary greatly depending on this information.

Personally, I would start with the lowest number code first (P0340). Replace the cam sensor. Please note: this is the MOST LIKELY cause of the problem, but not the only POSSIBLE cause. Then clear all the fault codes and drive the truck to see if this or the other codes return.

Check engine lights is on. Does that mean the engine is bad? I need oil?

It just means the computer has detected a fault with a sensor or something that it controls or a system that it monitors.

You will need to scan the computer for codes with a scan tool or a code reader. Once you know what code is present you can start to diagnose the problem.

Post the code here and I will be happy to assist you further.
