Hello, does the engine die when warm?

Ask Your Own Mercedes Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Before we replaced the crank position sensor the car would die when it reached operating temp. Now that the crank postion sensor was replaced the car stays running but will not restart once warm.
Mercedes Mechanic: Lou P. master tech, Mercedes Technician replied 2 years ago

ok,where did you get the new sensor from?

From WorldPac...
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Its an aftermarket crankpostion sensor made by Original Equipment
Mercedes Mechanic: Lou P. master tech, Mercedes Technician replied 2 years ago

ok, world pac sensors have issues sometimes, here is what i would do, ohm the new sensor when cold and let it warm up and shut the car off, when it does not restart re ohm the sensor and compare they should be near identical or within 100 ohms, not thousands or open. unless you have a scan tool to read rpm?

Ok I have a scan tool or ohm meter which do you recommend?
Mercedes Mechanic: Lou P. master tech, Mercedes Technician replied 2 years ago

ok sweet, does your scan tool show rpm data when engine running or cranking?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
it is an autoland scanner... complete MB functions. I can read live data
Mercedes Mechanic: Lou P. master tech, Mercedes Technician replied 2 years ago

PERFECT so what the rpms , get the car hot and shut it off, if it does not start then access the rpm data and see if it recognizes rpm as the engine is cranking
