Cylinder layout

My 2005 SLK 350 has missfired 3 times on cylinder #5. Can someone tell me the cyliner layout, and does each spark plug have a coil?

Don't know the config, but yes, each plug/cylinder has its own coil.

Be careful---often these messages indicate a symptom and not the disease.

Your engine has little reported in this area, but were it the previous M112 (320) issue this would most likely be the result of a bad MAF sensor. That is, bad mixture causing misfire. Not the ignition system's fault, that is.

There is ZERO guarantee that a code zeroes in and accurately describes what to fix.
