Hi all. I am a newbie (introduction thread here: http://www.mbclub.co.uk/forums/new-member-introductions/218912-wrx-clk.html) Borrowing a year 2000 w208 CLK320 off a mate, with a view to buying it off him if I get on with it and its auto gearbox (never driven an auto before). I have two questions. The first I’m just curious about but the second I actually need advice on to help me fix. 1. The car had known a ‘warm start’ problem. It starts when cold, it starts when hot, it does NOT start when warm. It’s caught me out and even though it’s not my car (yet), I figured I’d try and sort the problem for once and for all. After a bit of Googling / forum lurking I took a punt and ordered a camshaft position sensor. Fitted that yesterday and that seems to have cured it (touch wood). But my question is this: The camshaft position sensor I removed was filthy. Layers of grime. Do you think it’s actually faulty or just in need of a very good scrub? And also what does it say about engine condition if such a part is so caked in soot & grime? 2. This is the question I actually need help with to get the car back on the road. After fixing the warm start problem I went out for a spirited drive to celebrate. At some point in the journey my indicators and wiper stopped working. As did the windscreen washer and the ability to flash other drivers with my main beam (though turning main beam on fully still works). What have I done? I’m near Epsom Racecourse and we had that snow the other day and while driving a lump of snow from trees landed on my windscreen. I used the wiper to flick it off. But if I’d burned out the wiper motor/fuse under load, would that in turn have the knock on effect of killing the indicators and washer? The car was a ‘spare’ vehicle for my friend, and he, his wife, and my other friend were previously all using it if needed in an emergency. They could still ask to use it which concerns me as the ‘warm start’ problem could be tolerated (you just wait for the car to cool down completely) but now I’ve actually broken it properly and rendered it not roadworthy!!
