    Car hesitation pressing accelerator

    Hi All Car is a W168 A Class. The Coolant light came on and was Yellow. It then went out. After driving for over an hour, suddenly the car started hesitating. Pressing on the accelerator it was very jerky reaction. Almost bunny hopping. I used a cheap code reader. Code is P0355. Crankshaft...

    ISO is universal, yes?

    Sorry I didn't respond sooner, I had this fitted by a garage who did a bit of work for the car. They did it for free.

    W168 - Steering play and wheel off alignment

    Hi All Hoping you might have a few thoughts on this. The A210 Evo is still going but it's becoming less driveable. The steering feels loose. Feels like there's too much play. Hitting a bump at motorway speed seems to upset the car too much. Also, the alignment has gone well out a couple...

    A Class W168 Manual - won't go in gear on start up, restarting fixes problem?

    Hi We've been having this problem for a while. Car is a W168 MANUAL A Class. On start up sometimes the car won't go in to any gear. Foot on and off clutch makes no difference. Strangely...turning the car off and restarting it and suddenly the car is going in to gear! It then works...

    W168 A Class poor reception

    Hi, Long time since I've been here! I see a number of old faces around, which is always good to see. The reception on my W168 is very poor. I think it is because the aerial amplifier is not working. I am not sure but think this could be due to there not being any power going to the radio...

    W168 A Class will not start - any ideas?

    Hi Hope everyone is well. Would really appreciate some thoughts and advice. Last year for almost two weeks the car would not start. I changed the battery. Left the battery disconnected in a hope to clear the fault. It still wouldn't start. We then had it towed to an Indie. It started...

    Specialist Review - AUTOMERC, North London

    They are very good. Detailed and thoroughly inspect and fix the car. But they are extremely expensive. I mean very expensive. So bear that in mind.

    North London Merc specialist

    To keep things honest and open, I would not agree with this. I had such bad tracking that the steering wheel had to be pointed to the right in order to drive straight. I was told he wasn't sure if anything could be done unless I bought new front tires. He drove the car back to drop it off to...

    Auto Electrician in Surrey (preferably mobile)

    I think you might be underestimating Auto Electrician's...but far more importantly missing that I already took it to a Mercedes Specialist who said they could not find any fault - they have a STAR machine. Also guess what this morning it started up fine! I'm not going to call anyone out unless...
