RE: 99 S320 will turn over, but not start... any ideas out there?
Hey, BG. Does it run perfectly when it's running? If you have any irregular idling, stumbling or anything at all like that then I'd probably lean towards the CPS/reference sensor. If you're handy it's a DIY.
If, however, the car runs perfectly and then simply won't start, but then later starts and runs perfectly, I haven't heard of that and haven't run across it in any of the threads. [It's these sorts of things that lead us to find good indies, and one of the ways you know they're good is if they find it and fix it fast. :)] I assume you're not getting any malfunction warnings or CELs either, if so those could be scanned by an indie (as you can tell I don't like dealers).
Good luck, let us know what you find out.
