Engine Mechanical problem
2002 Mercedes Benz 240d 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 125000 miles
From time to time, the motor stop after a few seconds after starting. If I repeat more than 5 time the motor will finish by running without stopping.
Sometimes you can try 30 minutes before you succeed.
This stopped after changing a sensor in May2010 but it begin again at the end of June.
Is it possible that there is an electrical gaz pump in the tank an we have to make this pump walk before starting?
First thing you need to do is have the codes read, Autozone does it free, Post the results with the code number(s). Even if the service engine light is not on, there should be freeze frame data stored.
If it won't make it to Autozone, buy a cheap scanner, they can be had for 30-40 dollars, a good investment, since they cover all cars sold in the USA from 96 on.
If the light is blinking, it means possible damage to the converter. Service it right away!
