Question about 2003 Mercedes-Benz CLK-Class

1 Answer

320 CLK - Air Conditioner/Heater won't work . . . compressor dead?

While a/c was running, started smelling "hot" smell . . . a/c died . . . a/c won't work (will not blow). Heater won't blow either . . . does this mean the compressor is dead? Would a dead compressor kill both the a/c and heating capability? Thanks!!

Probably burnt the compressor out. for ac work it pays to go to a pro that does ac for a profession especially with Mercedes. one thing done wrong could backfire to mega bucks..

SOURCE: mercedes clk 320 will not start

i have a 2000 clk320. it would not start sometimes, the engine would crank but it wont start. but after an hour or so it would start. sometime i'll get somewhere park, and come out an hour later and the engine would not start. if your having the same problem, take it to autoparts store ex: autozone or kragen. they could check your battery for free. and if its not the battery. than it could either be your fuel pump. or the crank position sensor. good luck. hopefully this help.

SOURCE: air conditioner isn't blowing cold air

Could be a number of things...electrical connections causing the compressor not to run. Turn on AC and turn your thermostat all the way to cool...now visually check to see if compressor is engaged and not just free wheeling. Most likely you lost your refridgerant due to leak in the system...would need to find leak and repair then have your system re-charged with refridgerant. Best case scenario...your system just needs a charge of refridgerant due to not having enough.

Why when I start my car is there an odor coming from vents that smells like something is burning, and my Air Conditioner still blows, but it only blows out hot air. 2008 Chrysler Sebring. Help?


have an accredited ac shop as an ac cannot produce hot air only cold air so that means that the ac is not working (leaks low on gas etc). The hot air is from the heater in the car and the smell is probably wire overheating or the resistors are burning.

Car heater blowing cold air and rubber burnning


If your heater is spraying a light mist through your vents it could be your heater coil. Mine did the same thing, smell rubber burning, then started a light mist through the vents. If you don't get that checked out, it could mess up your water pump and possibly your engine

Heater not blowing hot air & vacuum leak


sounds to me the hissing is the sound of a leaking heater core. Its smells weird becuse coolent usually has a sweet smell that is very noticeable. I bet the floor is wet/carpet damp in the front near the hissing. I bet your coolent level is low as well. Replace heater core.

Not Overheating, Smells like really hot antifreeze after I drive, a/c ok heater heats but when stopped air gets cold...stummped..thermostat?, Leak?


check your hoses and make sure its not getting low because when it gets low the hoses can get hot enough to expand and spit out antifreeze without overheating

I smell antifreeze,found no leaks,vehicle is not running hot


Its the heater core you smell it on the inside because the fan is blowing it into the vehicle antifreeze is unuswal stuff it forms a mist and becomes air borne even a small leak you will smell with the fan running look for wet spots on the carpet under the core but the mist may be so fine and you wonn;t feel it but this your problem

When my heater or AC is on, there is a "barn-yard" smell. How do I remove that smell?


Try your local parts store. Most sell an a/c deodorizer that you spray through the system. Most work pretty well providing nothing has crawled in there and died (mouse etc).

Engine runs rough, or dies when the defroster is turned on!


get your heater core checked out. the heater core is right by the blower motor and if its busted it will blow the smell into your car.
