C55 Engine Stalling
I don't want to violate any forum rules so if this is not the correct way to post on my issue, I can start a new post. It just happens to be a similar issue.
My car is a 2006 C55 that has just over 60,000 miles and I regularly service it at the Mercedes dealer, there is nothing I have held back on any service recommendations.
Recently, I have had issues with the engine stalling while driving and also not starting on the first turn of the ignition switch.
Can not swear to this verbatim as to the sequence of events but the one major incident that prompted me to take it to be serviced was an engine stall while driving at highway speeds, and I pulled over with a dead engine and nothing showing on the gauges. This is where it got interesting, I swear the engine was running again by the time I got my head back looking at the gauges after I had pulled over. So in that case, it seems it started running all on its own again, a one time incident. Still can not remember all the things that happened there as I was very busy negotiating through traffic to get the car safely to the side of the highway, it was not easy!
More lately sometimes it does not start on the first turn. This problem also happened more than a few times before I had it serviced.
There are no engine codes as advised by the Mercedes dealer and my own attempts at such.
The Mercedes dealer took it in in July and after 3 days told me the engine crank sensor needed replacing, so I said OK. When I got the bill the tech notes indicated that the original sensor tested reading 1180 ohms with the spec range being 600-1300 ohms, so I have no idea why they told me it needed replacing, as it seemed within spec. At first I was not happy but I did not have any problems after that until a couple days ago, so now I am upset and frustrated.
Reading this post it seems cleaning the MAF sensor might be a solution to this.
Asking the other forum members if they have some other ideas to take a look at.
