Car cranks but will not start

Have been working on this issue for the last 9 days now. 2005 c230 Kompressor Car started to idle rough and kept shutting off. Than cranks and does not Start. Mechanic and I started to try to figure out what is going on. We put odb2 scanner in and read the codes as camshaft and misfire We than removed the valve cover took out the coils and noticed there was oil leaking into the sparks 1, 2 Ordered new sparks, replaced gaskets, cleaned and check coils that were producing spark. Tried to start car. Still cranks no start We than ordered two cam adjuster magnets and replaced them. Still crank no start After doing more research we than ordered and replace the Crankshaft Position Sensor. We hooked up back the odb2 and all codes and faults were gone except the overhead control which is the sunroof. Still cranking and not starting

Maybe you're looking in the wrong area. You said it started to idle rough and kept shutting off. That could also be a fuel related issue. Possibly a clogged fuel filter or weak fuel pressure from the pump going bad. Check your fuel pressure. If you discover that the fuel pressure is correct, then make sure you have a strong blue colored spark from each coil by taking a good plug and plugging it into each coil while its out of the cylinder. Have someone spin it over and watch the color of the spark. A dull orange colored spark could mean bad coils or even the computer itself.

Hello Joe, i would suspect the crank position sensor has faulted...this is the most common cause for a no start condition on your model MB.
I hope this helps.

That could mean that your alternator is bad. If you have a volt gauge on your dash check it. It should be reading about 14.4 volts. If it is reading closer to 12 volts then your have a pooched alternator. if you are reading the right volts then pull out the manual and look up the symbol. It should tell you what it means and might get you closer to the solution.
hope this helps.

2005 Saturn vue wants to fire but won't. Battery reads 12.2.volts prior to starting and drops to 9 volts when trying to start. replaced cap and it started on first try. it had a rough idle before...

Unfortunately the answers you have given for replacing a cap is too vague. Is it a gas cap, radiator cap, air conditioning service port cap.... Look the battery needs charged that is why the battery drops to 9 volts, a good charged battery should drop to 10 volts. Check your battery terminals or cables for corrosion. Do a voltage drop tests on both positive and ground cables. As far as not starting any you mean not cranking as in no starter eengagement or cranking but not running? If it is not running listen to hear in the first 10 seconds to the fuel pump relay if it engages or listen for fuel the car getting spark?

2005 c230 Kompressor = Crank no Start

You have to go back to the basics to find out what systems aren't working. Fuel/Fire/Air. Is it getting fuel, is it getting spark, how is the compression? Once you figure these things out then you will be heading on the right track.

Check engine light,engine miss,loss of kompressor power

might have a vacuum leak. 2005 c class 230 kompressors have issues with the engine vent hoses under the intake manifold deteriorating and coming completely apart. This will cause mixture adaptations to max out and can cause missfires. Usually it sets a check engine light when it gets bad enough. There is a factory recall to replace these hoses, so check with mbz to see if your car has an open recall
