Engine hesitation

Started this discussion. Last reply by wdhitch Oct 3, 2012. 5 Replies

Was wondering, we have an 08, could dirty battery cables cause the engine to hesitate? Today my fiance had to stop at a red light, and the car didn't want to go. He backed up a bit and then it was…Continue

The wrench on the dash

Started this discussion. Last reply by Robert Ricewasser Sep 14, 2012. 10 Replies

    I read in the manual that the wrench goes on when oil needs changed. We had that done, but the little wrench (1) still is on. How do we get rid of this? Thanks  NancyContinue

"Nancy... The MB dealerships in FL use the same Mobile 1 synthetic that you can buy at the local autoparts store. Sounds like the dealer is taking advantage of you. I'd defiantly check the air filter (again, get one on amazon... they…"

"Hard to diagnose on the Internet.  How many miles on the car?  Has it had a new set of plugs (every 30K miles)?  Possible bad batch of gas (stick with 91 octane Top Tier brands.)  New air filter?  Any OBD codes?"

"Hi, Nancy. Typically, we do not expect corrosion on the battery terminals to cause hesitation. Corrosion can cause slow cranking, flickering of lighting, or other charging issues.  Hesitation could be caused by a number of issues such as fuel,…"

Engine hesitation

Was wondering, we have an 08, could dirty battery cables cause the engine to hesitate? Today my fiance had to stop at a red light, and the car didn't want to go. He backed up a bit and then it was ok. Being an 08 it's possible the battery terminals are getting corroded a bit. Just wondering if it was possible and if others were experiencing the same thing? Thanks, NancySee More
