what causes low compression on a C220 cdi

Asked by Jul 15, 2019 at 07:18 AM about the 2005 Mercedes-Benz C-Class

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

my car has been refusing to start due to low compression, any ideas what
needs to be fixed?

1 Answer


Was a compression test done? With a diesel, the first thing I do is replace the fuel filters and do a pressure test on the injector pump and transfer pump.
