Just acquired this car, in no running condition.
Has few klicks on it (275K km) but in very good shape.
Owner, few weeks ago, when got really cold coud not start it. Took it to repair shop, but ended up giving up on it, they where asking for lots of $$$ with no guarantees.
Here I'm.

Engine cranks good, no odd sounds. Brand new battery. But will not start.
I scanned for the codes, cleared all, cranked again.
Have 2 codes:
1. 13AF00 (current code) - soot contentof dpf too high
2. 10CB00 (stored code, can clear it but returns after cranking) - right intake port shutoff end position sensor defective

Are any of those codes will prevent engine from starting?
Is there any thing else I should check? Before really starting taking it apart?

I would start with checking the intake flappers linkage as this would the the easiest to do.
See if you can move the flaps by hand-pushing the rod.
Than observe fuel pressure during cranking. Should be in 5000 psi range to start.
Would those codes prevent engine from starting?
I would not think so, but MB design lot of self-preservation programs in those cars and does not share the knowledge with owners, so lot of those things have to be learned by experience.
Chances are that even the code alone might not stop the car, when neglected for long time - it will trigger limp.

Just went through 3 months of this with my parents car, 2001 cdi with OM613. Wouldn't start any time it got near freezing, which has been most of the winter.
No codes, just cranks and doesnt catch.
I replaced the fuel filter (over due), and every o-ring on every fuel line I could reach. Most showed some sign of leakage/dampness.
One of them seems to have been leaking (allowing air to be sucked in) bad enough to cause the no start.
Same thing happened on the 606 car last year.
I can only guess the 642 still uses the same types of connectors that use o-rings that harden and flatten out over time. The colder it gets the worse they seal.

It's a slow moving process as I do not have much time to work on this project.
But I found a reason of no start condition: compleatly plugged up DPF, I mean no flow at all.
I took it out and I'm in process of claning it (2nd run of Liqui Molly DPF cleaner). Without DPF car starts and runs very nicely now.

Anyone has good info/ideas how to clean DPF, other than Liqui Molly DPF cleaner? Looks like I made a nice progress but would like to make sure I did not miss some magic method, before I reinstall DPF (and it's not fun, very tight in that RH RR engine corner).

Take to a diesel truck shop, they can clean the dpf for cheap.
