1999 Mercedes Benz C230 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 71000 miles
I have a 1999 C 230 Kompressor with 71K.
When my check engine light came on, my NEW and highly recommended mechanic ran a computer check. He found an ignition coil on #2 cylinder was bad and the car needed a tune up. He replaced the coil, did the tune up and replaced the stop light switch. The check engine light remained on. He discovered the compressor clutch was working erratically. Because what he’d done cost me $700, I asked if the compressor clutch replacement was critical. He said it wasn’t. Does all this sound okay? This shop has an excellent reputation but I have to wonder about the computer not being specific in the diagnosis process. Any input greatly appreciated.
