Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is***** is no code 362 for the Mercedes. How did you obtain that fault code?

Customer reply replied 3 years ago
Right. Wrong code.
There is a P0133 and P1519
Mercedes Mechanic: Marty, Mercedes Technician replied 3 years ago
Hi, the P0133 is a fault code for the right front oxygen sensor. I'd replace the sensor for that code and make sure there are no vacuum leaks at the manifold. The P1519 is fault code for the right side camshaft adjusting solenoid located at the front of the right cylinder head. The solenoid needs to be checked for proper operation with a scan tool or you could disconnect and briefly apply power and ground to the solenoid and see if it affects the engine running. If nothing happens you will need to replace the solenoid.
Let me know if you have any questions.
