A couple of weeks ago I had starting problems, the engine was turning fine, but would not fire.

I went to get some tools, and it just started first time.

It has done this several times since, usually starting if left for a few minutes.

Today it just cut out, right on a roundabout! Tried starting it for over 1/2 hour and it just would not fire. Lo and behold, when the police came to suggest I pushed it to a safer place, it fired up first time:D

Anyone else had this issue?

Thanks

I have been doing some research, and it may be the crankshaft sensor.

Can anyone tell me how to get to this to check it out?

Best price I can find for one of these is £52.00 from Mercedes. Anyone recommend where I may be able to obtain one cheaper?

Thanks

I had the same symptoms - Garage replaced the sensor and no more problems.

They got the sensor for me at £53.50 plus vat so the price you have been quoted is typical. I don't know if it is an easy job.
