    7 speed autobox on E series W212 not selecting D or R when starting occasionally

    Just lately I've been getting the odd occasion that no gear is being selected when I move the selector to D or R after starting the car (plus the D or R light in the speedo doesn't come on) the car just sits in Park (P). If I restart the car and select the gear again then I can select the gear...

    Mine occasionally falls off

    And when it does it sets the alarm off, I do from time to time grasp it firmly and give it a wriggle and it always feels secure but as sure as eggs are eggs it will fall off and set the alarm siren going. When I place it back I make sure everything is clean and I give it a gentle wet before...

    A-Class occasionally won't go into gear?

    A-Class W168 210 Evolution. Occasionally, after starting, the car will not go into any gear. After eventually getting the car into gear and setting off, it may still be difficult to change gear for about 5mins after which the car is fine. On starting pumping the clutch seems to make no...

    Engine occasionally won't start

    Have a problem with my car that appears to be occurring more regularly; it's still only happened about 6 times, but it certainly isn't getting better! It's only when the engine is hot and has run for over 30 minutes; for the last four times, this has been when I have stopped for fuel after...

    Slow to start up (occasionally)

    Over the past 2 weeks or so I've noticed (on 3 or 4 occasions) that when I start the car it does not seem to fire up properly. It catches, but instead of idling normally it sounds and feels like it's about to stall - there's 0 oil pressure and at about 400+ RPMs - and then after about a...
