To set the record straight regarding my "speedometer reading". I live in Australia so we use kilometres NOT miles.

I have completed 110,000 kilometers in 3 years

The engine in my Jeep is the same engine used by Mercedes in its ML, C, S E range.

At 110,000 kms (3 years ) I have had a catastrophic engine failure melting a couple of pistons in the process.
I am currently in a battle with Chrysler Australia as vehicles basic warranty has expired and they are not providing financial assistance.

Apparently the ECU controlling the injectors has failed. This can be extremely dangerous in a common rail diesel engine with the immense pressure in the common rail.

I may even contact Mercedes Australia for their thoughts.
Jeep OZ have told me this has happened once before I was wondering if any Mercedes owners have had a similar experience
Do you mean they report other ECU failures or other engine failures like yours? I cannot think of an ECU failure that would exist and let the engine run long enough to cause any mechanical failures.

The higher pressures at the rail are normal on all CDIs, not a source for engine failures. Perhaps you mean an injector failure of some kind? They should have figured this out at when the car was serviced.

Your right my mistake when explaining possibly injector failure however with the high pressure of a common rail a "leaky" injector can cause a world of hurt in a CRD.

And how is that different than 68350 miles?

And your speedometer doesn't measure accumulated kilometers or miles. Your odometer does.

The only problem I had with mine was leaky injector seal, what I posted in W211 section.
Good luck on your claim.
His is the V6, i.e. OM642, not the inline 6 (OM648) that you have.

Has Merc ever had problems with main bearings with this engine or had a recall?

are you serious???? I've put 70K on my silverado duramax diesel in 3 years as a personal vehicle just on vacations and other driving. (and 0 problems by the way) high miles/yr shouldn't have anything to do with engine problems as long as proper maintenance is done. with todays manufacturing processes and lubrications, ANY well designed engine should be capable of at least 200K miles without major problems.
