Hello all Ive had an intermitent fault with the rev counter on my 638 110cdi. On tick-over the counter begins as normal then falls to a mm or 2 off 0. Im not sure but to me thats not a correct reading. When traveling ovre 20mph the guage initially goes up then falls down. I havent visably seen the guage go over 3000rpm although I never rev the nuts off any vehicle Ive had. But when travelling it does

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS G Newbie Advice - buying guides

Hi Im thinking about getting my first G-Wagen. I am in the UK and would like to buy a used one. However I have been unable to find any buying advice such as problem areas to look out for years to avoid etc. I have gone to specialist bookshops and trawlled the internet to no avail. If anyone could point me in the right direction I would appreciate it. I am primarily interested in a short wheelbase and

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS M W163 Budget from the dealer...scared

Hi guys Let me introduce myself first. I have a W163 ML 2002 i bought the car in Dubai 148K really good price. Anyways the thing is i took it to the workshop for general maintenance and because I want to replace some spare parts and when they gave me the budget my face was lol Im not using the car everyday so I wanna do the thing right and after checking for a few days in the forum all the problems

This exclusive performance is made possible by the 5980-cc V12 engine developed by mercedes-AMG.

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS E III 211 Considering a 2004-2006 E55.... some questions.

Let me preface this by saying that I have never owned a MB but I am now considering a 2004-2006 E55 AMG. Any major concerns with these model years In your opinion is an extended warranty necessary Looks like I can get a low mileage (30-40K mile) E55 for in the low 30s. Sound about right

where enough to question my loyalty to the Motorsports Division. Rear main seal leaks on my Porsche and constant clutch problems where also a factor. In reference to the E63 don&8217t get me wrong I love the 6.2ltr engine.

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS M W163 Replaced E-box fan

Its a five minute job but the miniature fan set me back 165.00 US. On top of the 553.00 for the crankshaft position sensor theres not much left for margaritas... They also recommended a LR oxygen sensor and a new driveshaft bearing...

benza The stalling was the crankshaft sensor which had to be replaced. I knew about the e-box fan since it used to be noisy then got quiet I lubed it myself but it ran intermittently so I decided I was going to replace it but forgot. The stalling made me think of it since the problem seemed electrical I thought maybe there was some thermal protection on the computer. I replaced the fan AFTER they fixed

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS E III 211 Considering buying 06 or 07 Diesel

I am considering purchasing a 2006 or 2007 Diesel E class for my wife. I am not new to diesels (I currently own a 2009 VW TDI) but I am completely new to MB. I drove the E350 yesterday and really enjoyed it but unfortunately there were no diesels to be found therefore I will hold out until I find one. I prefer the 2006 CDI for the simplicity of the inline 6iron block. However I really want to verify

Correct the new Aluminum block is a stronger design. Harder coatings on the cylinder walls permit far greater durability than iron more ridgid crankshaft meaning less reliance on bearings to compensate for design shortcomings. Counterbalancing shafts are nothing new and insure the other order vibrations are cancelled out. Either motor is great in its own right however if you want an engine that is a superior design the V6 takes the cake.

I think that if you check the OM642 Bluetec engine has an aluminum crankcase with cast-in gray iron cylinder liners. At least that is what mercedes benz has published.

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS C I 202 Converting my 94 C220 from Auto to Manual 5speed

Converting my 94 C220 with 249 000 miles from Auto to 5 Manual. Here is what I have done and found out so far 1.A manual transmission out of a 190E or 190D will fit. It can be the 5 speed 717.411 or the close ratio 5speed getrag with dog leg first gear. 2. Pedal assembly from the 190E 190D will fit with small modifications in order to connect the top bolt on the bracket. 3. The Shifter from 190E190D

The driveshaft from a 190E auto is what I am using but it is a little on the short side - it only is using about 2cm from the 5cm spline length so I am thinking of taking the driveshaft of the 190e manual (which is too long) and having it cut down so it would fit better and maybe even have it balanced to the rear half (which is the original of the c220). I hear something like that should cost around

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS M W163 Extended Warranty

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS G Trouble starting my 230G

After running smoothly for about a month since coming out of storage my 1980 230G has begun failing to start correctly. brbr Sometimes when I get in and turn the key it is perfectly normal and starts fine. Other times it makes this terrible grinding sound with no engine turnover whatsoever. It sounds like what you would expect to hear if you turned the key in a car with the engine already running.

I havent looked at the starter on my G yet but I have experience with many others. The basic problem is that the nose gear on the starter is not getting fully engaged with the flywheel (or ring gear if you have AT). First rule out easy things liek the starter attachment bolts being loose. If the starter is properly affixed to the engine then the problem lies either with a sticky Bendix Drive (a bendix

Hello everyone... Vibration. Good center support good bearing and good doughnut couplings but the U-joint seems to be sticky. When I wobble the splined end around by hand I can feel it getting slightly stuck in the straight-down position.

Ive sprayed it with WD40 as a temporary solution but I know Im going to need to replace it soon. Any idea where I can buy a new one TIA Shady

If you have a busted crank shaft bearing your oil pressure would be close to zero at any engine (rpm) speed.

MERCEDES BENZ SLK R170 The Porsche Cayman

Bruce asked me to post some pictures of my Porsche. It has been a long time since I posted pictures so I hope I am doing it correctly. I dont think I can compare the Cayman to the SLK 230 because of the 10 yeare age difference and the difference in price. Perhaps a comparison of the current SLK would be more appropriate. I can say that as a new Cayman owner I am much more satisfied with the fit finish
