Question about Mercedes-Benz 190-Class

1 Answer

1984 190e humming sound but won't turn over

Engine was running fine but then next day turned key and all i got was a humming sound. I found that the distributor cap center contact was burned and not protruding and the rotor contact was also burned and broken. I replaced the rotor and replaced the distributor cap with a used spare. When I turn the key it hums but does not start. Could it be the coil or the starter?

SOURCE: problems starting engine.

If your engine is turning over, but not starting, then the alarm is not the issue. The alarm will keep the vehicle from ever cranking to begin with. I don't believe that jeep used any type of immobilizer system back in 1995, so that should rule that out of the equation. You sound like you have some mechanical aptitude, and at least you know that it's missing spark, and where it's missing it at. Your next step would be to find a wiring diagram of your vehicle, and sorta trace the current flow backwards and find out exactly you're losing it at. Chances are it's something stupid simple, but you're just gonna have to do a little current tracing and check each connector, relay, fuse, etc along the way with anything involved in that circuit.

SOURCE: ROTOR BURNING UP

The rotor is somehow making direct contact with one or more distributor contacts.

Check the contacts inthe cap to see if you find any physical damage to one or more contacts caused by the rotor.

Could be rotor lead too long (file it down) or maybe the distributor shaft is bent or not seated. Remove cap and observe the distributor shaft as someone cranks the engine. Does it wobble? Can't tell? Place a stiff reference parallel to the shaft and turn engine again.

Truck won't start


Sounds like you have several problems.
If the engine will not crank, do you have power on the purple wire on the small starter terminal when the key switch is in the start position ?

I am not familiar with hybrids, but i think when you start, it's starting with the battery, so I think you have a bad connection, check and clean the battery terminals.

Won't start was running fine in rain next day no go


It is probably water has gotten into one of the sensors and needs be disconnected and dried out. the only way to distinguish which sensor is to have a tech connect a diagnostic meter to the vehicle.

Must not have been much of a mechanic. If the engine runs and sounds fine sometimes and other times it doesn't then it does not sound like a mechanical problem with the engine. Sounds more like a issue with either the ignition system or fuel system.

My '97 GMC Jimmy was running fine one day and then wouldn't start the next. The battery is fully charged, the engine turns over when the ignition key is turned, but it just won't catch....


TURN THE KEY SWITCH TO THE ON POSITION ,WITH THE GAS LID DOOR OPEN DO YOU HEAR THE HUMM OR WHINE OF THE FUEL PUMP,YOU MAY HAVE TO GET A 2 PERSON SO THAT YOU CAN PUT YOUR EAR RIGHT UP TO THE FUEL DOOR TO HEAR THE HUM,IF THEIRS NO HUM ITS NOT GOING TO START.THE TANK THEN MUST BE REMOVED AND A NEW 250$ FUEL PUMP WILL NEED TO BE INSTALLED.THE PUMPS ARE ALSO DIFFERENT BETWEEN 2DR AND 4DR. EBAY HAS CHEEP PUMPS 100 OR LESS.

1998 Jeep grand cherokee Laredo turning over but won't start. It sounds like it wants to start but just won't power into it. We changed spark plugs w/in last year, brand new battery, the alternator...


When it sounds like it wants to start but won't, it is almost always a fuel problem. When you first turn on the ignition key (radio off, in a quiet setting) do you hear a faint 'hum' from the rear of the car? If so, your fuel pump is probably alright, so the next check it to remove the small, light green plastic cap (it might be black, about the size of a tire valve cap) on the top of the engine-it is part of the fuel rail and has a small pin in the center of it. With a rag in your hand, hold it over the valve, and with the key on, use a small screw driver and push the pin in-the rag will keep you from getting sprayed, if all is alright, but if you get little or nothing, you have a problem with your fuel pump, filter, fuel regulator or you may have a plugged 'sock' at the bottom of the tank.
