ABC Suspension issue, finally happened to me :(
So, after reading numerous threads on ABC failure, here I go now. I have an S55 2001, with 140,000 miles.
I've searched and know a bit about this problem, and will be taking the car in on Monday...but can anyone give me an idea as to what happened/price to fix?
Here it is: I was driving, and stopped at a gas station. About 1 minute after I stopped, I hear a crack, and immediately hydraulic fluid starts to gush out of the car and leak all over the place, like massive amounts of it. The red "ABC Drive carefully" light came on, the car is still the same height.
I did not drive it at all, and immediately called a flat bed truck, and had it towed to my house. Now what exactly happened? What could that "crack" sound be? Am I in for a big repair?
I know this topic gets repeated, but I did not find the answer to this specifically so I'd appreciate so comfort/insight while I nervously await what can happen!
