Any warning lights on dash?
Is the shifter moving into gears as it should or do you need to use "the stick trick" to get it out of park?

From what I've heard, that's not all that's in LIMP MODE!

It moves into the gears with a clunking sound. The dash light say check engine.

Could be a number of things. The check engine light will no doubt refer to a ETC code. Conductor plate, rpm sensor, trans connector plug.........

The town Mayor just came by with his code reader and it said crankshaft position sensor. Is that something I can fix myself?

The CKP sensor isn't hard to replace, but it's not what put your car into limp mode. You need a full system scan with SDS.

Do I have to take it to the dealer for that?

I'm surprised ILUVMILS thinks that won't solve the limp home problem. I would think otherwise, but I don't know much about this newfangled technology other than to cower in fear.

This is starting to trouble me, I have a paying gig at the end of July in Ohio to go to. Hopefully I can get it fixed by then.

I agree with ILUVMILS, especially if this all started at once (CEL and limper-in-mode). Do you recall if the CPS code was current or stored? What I'd expect is that there will be a code in the engine controller referring to a code in the ETC. Possibly the reader that was being used doesn't have the capability of reading this code, although I'd sort of doubt it. The best bet would be to get to a shop where they can read ETC codes. MIGHT not need the dealer for that, but you might have to search for a german or MB repair specialist to find someone with a good enough reader.
