Post 2005 C200 Diesel starting fault

Hi Newbie here !!

We have a c200 diesel which has done 80k with full service history, but now occasionally when it's warm it won't start and needs to be left for 10mins, the car will then start normally.

No problems at cold, I have changed the batteries in the key fob, there are no fault codes showing at all when the fault occurs, some suggested it was an immobilser fault, locking the car with the key remote and unlocking makes no difference.

I have seen a post where someone had a similar fault and changed the crank angle sensor with no luck

Help Any ideas ??? Mark

A crankshaft position sensor might explain why yours does not start when warm. I know this is true with gasoline cars. If diesels have those too it is worth a try. They are not expensive and people say it is pretty easy to change yourself.
