Question Details

2010 Mercedes e200cdi sport (w212)
Ignition comes on but car won't turn over. After a few attempts or sometimes after nearly an hour of trying it starts perfectly. Mite do it the next several times I try to start it or mite not do it again for a week or two. Runs perfect when started. Any help appreciated. Thanks

Have you read the codes? I would start there. But use an Mercedes scanner because a basic OBD2 code reader will not help. A good choice is the iCarsoft MB II

Those can be signs can be a starter going out. Or the starter solenoid can fail as well. 

If there are no codes, I would guess the starter.
