Asked by Apr 09, 2016 at 02:01 AM about the 2005 Mercedes-Benz C-Class 4 Dr C230 Kompressor Supercharged Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Ever since the engine in my 2005 c230 kompressor had
been sprayed (with a "Pressure-Washer" I might add!) its
been running on what sounds/feels like (2) two cylinders!
Can someone please help me figure this out pronto? Thanx

Water or moisture might have gotten into some electrical connections. You should always be careful when washing the engine. The problem might go away if the car sits for a few days in a dry environment.
