Hello all,

As some of you may have read in a post from a few days ago, my 94 E420 was having its airpump tested with a "Baum" diagnostic device, when suddenly the engine died. (as if someone had turned off the ignition)

Today I was told that the first 4 cylinders (all the ones on one side of the engine) were not firing.

Does anybody have a clue as to what the heck is going on? My mechanic is thinking that it may need an ignition module, and is tossing some high dollar figures around. Naturally this has me freaked. (freaked? ok, fine... panicking)

Any ideas?

Personally, I am still wondering about the wiring harness, in other words, if a faulty one of those, could do what is happening.

thanks for any help!
