Thumbs up Long time '97 E420 owner - 145K

Hello all. I've cruised these pages for years and have used the info to save myself big $$$$ and do repairs to my benz on my own. I've become a member because at times I haven't been able to open photos to help me with repairs.

The current issue I have with my '97 E420 is that the low fuel light begins blinking after the engine has run for about 15 minutes and I stop at a light or stop sign. Sometimes it throws a code P0455. I'm going to clean the purge valve (OBVR) as encouraged in the posts and see if that helps. Wish me luck.

Throughout the years I have used these posts to help change out oiler tubes (engine tick), change out the brake module (ABS code), change out my fan regulator using one from another MB (low fan speed), replace cabin air filters, replace lights in my dash and climate control unit, fix rattles inside my door panels, etc. I would say that I have saved thousands in repair costs using these posts. Thanks.
