    Hi, as the title says, I have a C63 rattle when I first crank the engine in the morning, it goes away almost instantaneously and it is worse when the oil level was lower than at the full mark and also worse when I had OW40 oil....

    E320 refusal to start

    2005 E320 W211. Today, for the first time, the car refused to do anything when I attempted to start it. Lots of key twiddling followed, for possibly five minutes. Then, as suddenly as it had stopped responding, it decided to react and the engine started. My journey was short, possibly...

    320 CLK won't start

    Hi, My CLK 320 has just let me down. The engine cranks but won't start. it runs lumpy for about 10 - 15 secs then stops. Fortunately this happened on my driveway. It ran fine this morning. Is this a symptom of an air flow sensor failure? Thanks.

    Hello A friend of mine owns a 1988 300SL and it's refusing to fire up. I have read some place before that the fuel pump relay could be the cause? Anyone else had a similar issue or could help diagnose what it may be? Thank you very much

    SL500 1994 non start after harness replacement

    Hi all, helped a friend replaced the upper engine harness on his 1994 SL500. The original was falling to bits and although the car was running pretty well with just the occasional lumpy idle ... it was a matter of time. Sent the loom to Sileck who appear to have done a first class job...

    E320cdi S210 non start!

    Left work tonight and the car was running great. 60 mile run to Macclesfield, stop, 60 mile run back to Burton. No problems apart from the smoke under load but think the EGR needs sorting. Now home and it won't start! Turns over fine but not firing. Will look more in the morning, but any...

    Hello, I am a relatively new W123 owner. The car was low mileage (72K when I got it but it had been in storage for a long time). I have had quite a lot of work done on the car in the last 6 months: brakes, fuel tank, fuel lines, exhaust, bodywork and engine decarbonisation and full service...

    ECO Stop/Start

    I've searched a lot of threads and it looks like the ECO stop/start cannot be disabled other than each & every time one starts the engine via the console button. That's how it is on my C class, even after switching off the engine for only a couple of minutes. It's a real pain e.g. when...
