Smooth, economical and reliable to be honest. What was 163 horses is now 205 and rather more torque than a 4.7 ho (and at much lower revs) as well as slightly better fuel mileage thanks to a TdI tuning Crtd2 tuning box. Fitting guide and review to follow when its been on for a while.
But even as standard its a good unit. I guess, as Mercedes put it in the E270 and the ML270, it was never going to be too bad! Being an in line five its got a nice burbblIng sound too!

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got yourself an electrical problem!

I've seen certain accessories stop working randomly (windows, wipers,etc). I've also seen rough running symptoms as a result.

I have been told sometimes the code for the crankshaft position sensor don't show, I feel your pain took almost two weeks before I figured it out.

Not sure their not expensive, kinda a pain to get to, I had mine done, we had temps over 100 when I got it fixed with parts and labor it was like $160, after having the shop do I found out it would have not been as bad to do, on some years I guess you can get to it from the floor inside, their is a bunch of write up on here, good luck, hope you get it figured out :-)

Such bad info.....dude take the starter off and the Crankshaft position sensor is right there. $35 for a new sensor and an hour of your time and its fixed. Might as well go ahead and change the Camshaft position sensor while you're in there. It's right below where you put in oil on the passenger head. 1 bolt, twist it half a turn and it comes out.
