Have Mercedes Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.
Has anything been tested or replaced to try and locate or repair this fault here at all?
Can you tell me the year and model of your vehicle?
Most of the time it is a cam shaft sensor/magnet that needs replaced but I want to make sure here.
Did you make sure the chain was installed and aligned properly when it was installed.Did you replace the balance shaft or balance shaft gear at all?
O.k.,since this only occurred after replacing the balance shaft/balance gear (this was a common problem on this year and model engine) this indicates that the timing is not set correctly.Meaning the timing chain is off on one or more links causing this fault here.This wont be a sensor at fault since this was not an issue before the balance shaft/gear was replaced.
The timing chain alignment will have to be checked into further to locate the alignment issue and corrected from there unfortunately.
