    Dear Kajtek,

    I know the timing chain guides are made of plastic but do we have to change them at certain miles?

    My dad tells me that timing chains last forever and dont' mess with them if its not broken. I am still doubtful that metal rubbing on plastic for so many years still holds up? wondering do they make metal guides? but I am assuming that would increase the friction.

    My mother's jaguar s type I belive I have to replace the guides due to known problem of cracking due to plastic components but was wondering about E320s if they need this service.

    czesc, pisze z Polski iz zauwazylem ze masz orientacje w Mercedesach z USA z teleaid,

    mam pytanie czy orientujesz sie moze czy da rade zamontowac telefon w Mercedes R230 z 2005 roku ktory ma 359 TELEAID USA ale w podlokietniku nie ma uchwytu do telefonu natomiast po zdjeciu pokrywy widac kable do podlaczenia uchwytu...

    podlaczylem uchwyt z Nokia ale niestety dalej wyswietla telephone not available

    orientujesz sie czy trzeba dokupic jeszcze sterownik telefonu czy tylko doprogramowac przez SD ?

    z gory dzieki za odpowiedz

    pozd.

    I could use a little help with a turbo problem if you wouldnt mind. I will give the short version instead of rambling on. I have an 09 GL bluetec that i did the oil cooler job on saturday. Triple checked all connections/hoses. On my 50 mile ride home from doing this...no turbo boost..let the truck sit sunday out of pure frustration. This morning on my commute back to work I had a normal working truck with turbo but I had a check engine light. Turns out the code was P0471 exhaust pressure sensor. Cleared it and all was well. Drove home and lost boost about halfway into my commute...turned truck off and restarted and everything was normal. Check engine light back on and its the same code. I installed a new servo motor for the flaps on the manifold and an upgraded bleeder valve. Other than that just new gaskets etc. Any ideas? Trans also downshifts funny when the no boost is present. Prior to this it ran flawless

    Dzien dobry.
    Przeszukujac to forum widze ze jest pan jednym z tych ktorzy, sie bardziej orientuja w temacie w210 diesel. Jezeli moglby mi pan pomoc bylbym bardzo wdzieczny. Jestem szczesliwym posiadaczem 99 e300 td w ktorym cieknie diesel. Kapie z shut off valve. Wymienilem wszystkie line a takze shut off valve oring (2 razy) a problem dalej istnieje. Dziwne jest to ze zaczyna cieknac kiedy silnik nie chodzi przez dluzszy czas (przez noc) Kiedy rano przejade 5 mil przestaje cieknac. Czy jezeli bylby to zly oring Na shut off valve nie cieklo by rowniez wtedy kiedy silnik dziala? Shut off valve cieknie? Czy mozna to jakos sprawdzic. Z gory serdecznie dziekuje.
    Grzesiek

    Kajtek,

    You seem to know a bit about the mid to late nineties diesels.I currently own an '87' 300TD and am considering upgrading to a newer diesel.I'm primarily interested in higher MPG and a larger fuel tank to get me longer range.I considered going the TDI route but they seem too flimsy.
    I currently get about 30MPG doing 60-65 and have about an 18 gal. tank.I'd like to get 35+ MPG and although I like the power of the turbo, MPG is more important for me.I currently have an Elsbett kit on my car to run the car on clean veggie oil and would plan to do the same on my next car.I've heard about some of these mid-nineties cars having a 23+ gallon tank.
    Priorities:
    -Reliability
    -Build quality
    -High MPG
    -Large fuel tank

    Thank you,
    Robert

    Thanks again Kajlek1, the connector on top of the Duo valve was loose and had vibrated off so the coils were not being energised. All ok now and I have saved a lot of cash.
    Thats the power of the forum.
