RE: C240--strange engine problem
I spoke with the dealer rep at length and it turns out that although the codes registered an engine misfire they didn't register anything else. Apparently this is not supposed to happen--if the engine misfired it's supposed to know why. They checked the fuel filter, all the sensors, etc., test drove the car numerous times and came up with nothing. Her best guess at this point is that it's the computer itself that's acting up (my suspicion all along actually, because cycling the key would fix the problem) and that because it's only happened twice and is non-duplicatable, there is no way in heck my warranty will cover any repair. So I have the car back, it is driving great, and hopefully it was just a blip, computers do that sometimes after all.
