2007 c-230 intermittently not starting correctly
I am having problem with my 2007 C-230. It happened three times in the past six months, when motor was still hot. When I started the car, I could hear the motor was running for a few seconds, then it failed, and all the lights on the dash board were on, including the check engine light. The car was towed to Mercedes dealership for inspection; however, I was told nothing was registered on the carís computer and they couldnít find figure problem. And it worked fine after towed to the dealer. And they said they canít re-create the problem.
This time, Mercedes dealer suspects that itís the problem with the key, so they suggest ordering a new key, then they could see if itís the EIS problem.
I also read something online regarding the failure caused by crankshaft position sensor; and also, Balance Shaft Gear Issues on M272 engines. Do you think thatís the issue with the car?
I donít know much about auto mechanics. Any suggestion would help.
