With the other MB that I owned (C230), it had none of the attributes of the SLK.
same for me this morning. it was 9deg. Fahrenheit. it sounded like a diesel....clackity clack clack! (though i love diesel) also when i put it in reverse, i feel a vibration. i wonder if that the sign of coil packs going bad. I'm going to test it his weekend. does anyone know the proper procedure for testing the coil packs? i also have an appointment scheduled with the local dealership to do the first transmission service. I'm wondering if that has to do anything.....
