I agree with your solution. We both know if it doesn't work, nothing is lost. I like to think the least expensive solution is the BEST. If that solution didn't work, it either didn't cost much, or it cost nothing. OMG, this philosophy ribs wrong with a lot of people who have too much money and not a lot of time to solve their problem with their own situation?


I'm a FIRM believer in 'trust but verify'. Especially when someone else wants to spend my $'s under the guise of 'advice'. Before I spend, I want to know I did all I could with my limited resources, to make sure every $ counts.

funny thing, looked up parts in autozone:

under 2005 chrysler crossfire srt-6 it shows part number su6904 for $300
under 2003 mercedes slk32 amg it shows part number 0061532728 for $100
oem mercedes part number 2759050000 (updated part from 0061532728) is $100 wholesale $125 retail.

pics look the same, any reason why these two cars would have different parts for this?

They are most likely the same part, but you pay Chrysler for going to the Mercedes dealer, picking up the part and putting a Chrysler label with the Chrysler part number on it over the top of the Mercedes label. That has got to be worth $200 or why bother to get out of bed.
You probably would get the updated part as well instead of the obsolete part.
Look at your oil pump the Mercedes number is on it somewhere.

Seems the same part number is on ALL crossfire year/models including the SRT-6 AMG motors (oil level sensor).

Finally I do this!
Yesterday I clean my engine inside.
For engine flush I used 1L kerosene.
After 20km trip I add 1L kerosene to engine for about 15min and next change oil and filter for cheapest but new. Today and after 100km I changed for good quality oil and filter again.
Now my oil level sensor works OK, no bips!

GLAD to hear! Sometimes, it is the simplest things that work. Like I said in post 19! I do not guarantee this is the reason all the sensors stop working BUT if it works afterwards it saves a lot of time, saves a messy cleanup, and saves a few bucks on parts and lack of use of the car. I know for a fact, ppl sometimes put WAY TOO MUCH OIL back in the engine so it figures to be bound to happen it gets stuck. In all my oil changes, I never add more than 8 US quarts, and that brings the level (on level ground) to right on the top FULL mark. I am going to put only 7 1/2 US quarts in this may (I do mine once a year due to low miles driven), just to see if it'll read that it needs oil (experiment). Again, ready glad to hear you got it 'unstuck'!

Just FYI. If your sensor is not bad and just leaking, you can change the o'ring for $5 bucks. I know I did it. Found the advice on SLK World forum.
