2005 C230 Sport - Erratic Oil Light

Well, it is my daughter's car and it now has just over 100k miles. There seem to be some budding electrical/computer system problems, from rough running and a repeated code citing low engine coolant temperatures and now the system seems to be saying it is using oil at an alarming rate - it was about 2500 to 3000 miles to a quart of Delvac 1 5W-40 synthetic for the previous 99,800 miles. Oil changes every 6,000 to 8,000 miles.

We will acquire a dipstick tomorrow and check the oil level manually, but I was wondering if these things have any issues with the computer needing to be rebooted or any class symptoms. Before I start into looking for a real oil consumption problem.

Jim

Jim,
MB opened a Service Campaign for oil in the wiring harness on that model.
Has that been done yet?

M.B.Doc,

Thanks for the response.

Not to my knowledge. Is there a bulletin number I can track that down with available? It has been to MB for several of the scheduled services in the last few years but I saw nothing in the paperwork she saves saying any wiring harness work was done.

Jim

M.B.Doc,

Can you tell me anything about what the service does? And is it similar to a recall or is it a fix you pay for once you are off warranty (and this car is off warranty)?

Thanks,

Jim
