new member urgent help needed
Hi all ,member here. I have a 1998 slk 230 with 53000miles onthe clock.
I purchased the car last year and noticed a couple months after that the engine would cut out whilst driving it, however it would re start after a couple of minutes and inever thought much of it.
the problem has got much worse of late and now wont start for days when it does cut out, and it is cutting out very frequently.
Ive read a few topics on here and have folowed some of the advice. I have spent over £500 and have not solved the problem, mymechanic can not solve the problem and neither can my local mercedes benz dealership.
The car will work fine one day, but not start atall the next.I will be driving along and all of a sudden it will just cut out on me, the roof will go up and down and all the electrics will work, the fan comes on but just wont start.
ive took advice on here and replaced the crankshaft sensor, had a new alternator fitted, had the k40 relay sensor out (appears to be in perfect condition ). mercedes benz have had the car 3 weeks and said that no fault codes are showing up, they tell me it could be the k40.
I am at my wits end and am just spending money and getting nowhere, could anyone please help me out with some advice or has anyone had the same problem?.
All feed back greatly appreciated, many thanks kurt .
