Q: coolant leaking from injector 3

asked by on August 05, 2016

Coolant leak from near injector 3 gearbox gone into safety mode

My car has 150000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

This could be from a couple of problems that may be unrelated.

As you may know, safe mode is a feature that the car actuates when the car’s Engine Control Module (also known as the "ECM" or "main computer"), detects a problem with any of your drivetrain’s critical systems.

I would first try shutting the car off and waiting 20-30 seconds. Do not touch any other buttons in the vehicle during this time. Try restarting to see if it is still in safe mode. If this does not fix the problem, you may need to take your CLK320 to your dealer to have it shut off.
