Problem with my c220 cdi please help

Hi everyone,

I am having a problem with my 5 year old c200 cdi. Occasionally it just wont start or attempt to start. Ther majority of the time its fine but occassionally when i turn the engine off and then on again it wint start the second time. If I leve it for 10 minutes ant try it it starts.

Does or has anyone else have the same problem if so any advice will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance

Can you clarify, when you say it does not start, do you mean it does not even crank or do you mean it cranks but does not fire?

For the latter it sounds like the crankshaft position sensor. Usually it is worse with hot engine and starts to work once the engine/sensor cools a bit.

Of course it could be fuel injection but if it starts when you leave it for 10 minutes, sounds less of a fuel issue.

This must be a W203 car, you might find more info/advice from the model specific forum.
