Ask Your Own Mercedes Question

that is the code you dont want to see. Im surprised you also do not have P0017 if not you will, this model was prone to a balance shaft failure, this was an easy 5k$ repair that all the 06 and early 07 V6 and V8 engines needed due to a premature failure of the metal that the gears were made out of ,

this will not go away without the engine being removed, torn down and the shaft replaced.

mercedes actually had a class action lawsuit on this issue, but now it is too old to be covered I believe. here is the info for the code.

its highly unlikely you have another issue besides this balance shaft, that is the only thing that can retard the passenger bank.

let me know if you have any questions.
