When I start my car it runs for 3 seconds then shuts off. Its been doing that a lot lately, after the 4th time starting it finally runs fine without shutting off. Today I got in the car to go to school and the car started up but died after 3 seconds I tryed again but it didnt start at all. After 6 times trying to start it I gave up. It just cranks and cranks and cranks. Its getting spark. I'm thinking its either the mass airflow sensor or the fuel filter or fuel pump. The notorious wiring harness has been replaced already and seems fine. I'm gonna have to just end up bringing it to a Mercedes-Benz shop.
