Try not to be too hard on the AZ folks. You can take the scanner at AZ and hook it to a Mercedes Benz and that code will be different than at the Benz dealership. Remember, there are thousands of codes and many cars have different codes or definitions for the code numbers. If all were the same. Gee. You might be able to fix more things yourself instead of taking it to the dealer.
So, they were telling you what their test equipment shows. Which it may be different. But that is why I ask for the code and what they say to compare. Since they, you and I don't have the fancy equipment hooked up to your car. We have to do it this way. Kind of a team effort thing with all of us working together to get you back going again. So. The AZ folks are okay on this one.
Based off of what you said.I am hoping it is just needing a good tune up. Once you do your check then we can go over that.
You car will still throw codes. Sometimes you may not even see it.
Oh yes my good friend. Plugs are a major item. The wrong plug can do many things and if you figure what they are doing and how often. Wow.I am surprised they last as long as they do.
Good thought on the rain. Really good thinking. In this case though the sparks may be only once in a while jumping. When you mist the bottle on it the spark hits the water and jumps.
You don't need to do it in the dark. Just be careful. Many moving parts.
You are more than welcome for the help. Let me know the results and we will take it from there.
