fault codes 6 and 7
We checked and rechecked the fault codes--got 6 (idle speed control inop.) and 7 (ignition system failure). Couldn't see any sparks in the dark (confirming what someone wrote me--thanks!). I tried to find relevant information on the Benz 124 CD without luck. I forgot to mention that I washed the engine (mainly its underside) a month ago to remove widespread oil (apparently leaking from the timing chain cover--front right of the engine).
