Problem with my E320, Starts when it feels like it

Hi Guys, I'm new to the forum and i was hoping to get some help on my temperamental Benz.

I have an E320 sedan, year 2000 with about 50,000 miles.
Lately i've been having trouble with the car turning over after a drive. We never know when it decides to not start, but it seems after a long or short drive in some instances the car sounds like it wants to start but doesnt turn over. If i come back in an hour the car starts again, and so on.

I've had the battery checked and it's fine.

Sometimes I can get the car to start with a cable boost.

I had a new bosch air filter installed last year.

The car drives well with no lag and it's never stalled on the road.

The only warning light we get is some times regarding the oil level being too high, I don't know if the non start is related to this warning.

My mechanic has no problem starting the car and so he can't really determine the cause.

I'm a little fluxed here because we never know when the car won't start. Perhaps you guys can help. Thank You, Marshall

You have what MB calls a W210 and we have a dedicated forum. Just scroll down from this general one and you'll see us in the sedans section. Welcome and good luck.
