Car won't start in the cold
Hey all, I'm in desperate need of some advice.
Last summer I bought a 2005 C240 with 42k miles on it, it drove really well until it hit winter time and got cold, then one cold morning I went to start it and it would not start at all. I had to push my foot on the gas pedal to get it to start. So last winter I brought it to a mechanic who said it was my fuel injectors, so he replaced them. That didn't fix it. Then he said it was my fuel pump and filter. That didn't fix it. Then he said it was my spark plugs. That didn't fix it. After all this happened, it started to get warmer and the car would start up fine. Well, it's winter time again so I bought it to another mechanic who works for Ferrari and Tesla and he said it was my camshaft and crankshaft sensor. He installed them tonight, that didn't fix it. I'm at a loss, no mechanic can find out what's wrong with this thing and Mercedes wants to charge me $200 an hour just to look at it, I really can't afford that. Has _anyone_ had similar problems and could point me in the right direction as far as what is wrong? My next step is really to just bring it to Mercedes but I'm not going to have enough money to get my car back once they diagnose it =X
