problem #1

Nov 112006

C230 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 47,300 miles
Check engine light illuminated after 1,000 miles after I bought the car used. The car had 47,000 miles. The engine was not performing as well as it had been. The dealer ran a diagnostic which revealed six sensors had failed and needed replacing. Upon subsequent investigation the dealer found that oil had leaked into the sensors wiring harness and contaminated the sensors.
