For the last 6 weeks, my cl500, which I have owned for the last 6 months has decided to become unreliable!!!!

I start the car in the morning, no problems, drive for 15 mins, then leave the car, try to start it again and it sounds like its having a heartattack! (wheezing noise!), it wont start. Then I leave it for another 20 mins or so and it starts!

I've took it to Mercedes 3 times and they continue to blame the crank shaft sensor because when they test that part by pouring water on it the engine starts instantly. They said that the first 2 sensors could have been faulty, but now its happened again! I am getting so stressed out as my livelihood is based on me getting around!

I also have a grinding sound when I'm driving. Allegedly its either the ABC pump or the air conditioning pump, but they say they cant work it out which one it is, thus they say they will have to change both!

Has anybody else had these problems or know a solution?!?!

Please help me! I would really appreciate it

P.S. I just had Service B, 3 weeks before the problem started.
