300M 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

I just bought my car used in January 2008 and the check engine light has been on and the car is hard to start. However, the car did pass inspection because the problem that I'm having isn't considered failing during inspection. I took the car to be diagnosed and the engine cool packs all had to be replaced. After the parts were replaced, the check engine light is still on, the car still shimmies and it is still hard to start. This happens everytime I start the car!
