Research on Distributor Cap for Mercedes 500SL

If your Mercedes 500SL won't start, it may not be the starter or a bad battery. You may need a new R129 distributor cap. This can solve some starting problems, and there are a few ways to determine that you do have a bad distributor cap and don't need to replace spark plugs or your starter. With a new distributor cap installed on your Mercedes 500SL, you can get back on the road in no time.

What is the Distributor Cap?

Most vehicles made after 2000 don't have distributor caps, but your Mercedes 500SL was likely made in the early 1990s or earlier, and has this part as a component of its starting system, similar to the 1990 Mercedes 300E distributor used on other earlier Mercedes models. The distributor cap would rotate to deliver electricity from the ignition coil to each spark plug wire in turn. This part operates on the very basic principle of completing a circuit as it passes each node on the cap, where a wire is connected. If there is a short in the distributor cap or one of these connections does not get made, you'll find that your Mercedes is not running as it should or not running at all.

How Long Does the Distributor Cap Last?

The distributor cap operates at high voltages and is not made to last forever. In fact, you should schedule for this part to be replaced every 50,000 miles or when it shows signs of wear. Generally, checking your engine's timing is also done when you need to replace the distributor cap and its accompanying rotor, which turns the cap. If you keep up with this maintenance job, it's unlikely that you'll encounter a sudden inability to start your car from a bad distributor cap.

Symptoms of a Bad Distributor Cap

When the distributor cap wears out, it won't effectively send power to the spark plug wires. If one or more of your spark plugs does not get the voltage it needs, it won't ignite, and you'll be running on fewer working cylinders than you should be. You may find that the engine begins to misfire suddenly, which is a strong indication that the distributor cap isn't sending electricity with the correct timing. If you check engine light comes on and your engine won't start, you may also suspect a bad distributor cap. Sounds such as sputtering, clicking, or tapping from under the hood could be from spark plugs that are not getting enough power to ignite. Any of these should be signs for you to get a new distributor cap for your Mercedes.

Cost for a New Distributor Cap and Rotor on a Mercedes 500SL

Generally, most people have the skills needed to replace the distributor cap and rotor themselves, but if you prefer a mechanic, it can cost you a lot more than the price of the part. For instance, a 1992 Mercedes 500SL distributor cap can cost from $316 to $501 if you go to a mechanic to have the part replaced. It's better to go to PartsGeek.com to get a new rotor and distributor cap and install it yourself so you can spend the least amount of money on this basic maintenance task for your 500SL.
