1995 E320 SE Check Engine Light/ Acceleration Loss?
Hello, I just purchased Friday, a 1995 E320 SE with a 3.2 L engine, 136 K miles.
The car ran great with awesome acceleration until midday yesterday when I first heard a whining noise after revving the engine. Then, today, the dreaded Check Engine Light came on.
I could not believe the timing!!! This is the second used car to develop problems the DAY after I purchased the car. If I had only heard this sound and seen the CEL, I would never have purchased this E320. However, I heard that this particular year E class has great engines. Is this car worth the investment?
Does anyone know what might cause this sudden loss of power, whining noise, and the CEL to come on? I also have a defunct / malfunctioning air conditioner compressor. Would A/C issues affect the CEL and acceleration?
Any help would be extraordinary! Thank you!
