DAWG!! Slide on down to the Dealer and unload that hunk o' junk and get a great Holiday Deal on a new ride!! You owe it to yourself to be cruising in style, baby!! Hollar at me!!


600SL is a very complex engine and electronics. There could be any of several items causing the problem. Fuel filters, cheap gas (you MUST run premium), ignition, etc. I can't believe a M-B dealership couldn't trouble shoot it. Did anyone run an ODB-II scan on it?
