Hi fellow MBZ owners, I have a 92 300E and have gradually been getting it into shape for the last 8 years. I'm a learning mechanic and try to learn and do as much as I can on the car, mostly out of need because the local shops are very expensive. My last 3 major victories have been replacing the water pump and belt tensioner shock absorber (corrected coolant leak and banging noise), replacing the fuel injectors which probably were not bad but led me to discover the problem, which was a compromised idle control hose (rubber 90 degree, hard to get to hose, symptom was rough idle) and finally trouble shooting the problem of hard starting and coolant loss coming to find out the head gasket was leaking coolant into the combustion chamber, NAPA helped me and a can of head gasket sealer corrected the problem.
The car has 155K on it and have been considering replacing the flex discs and after joining this list and reading the available material I will definitely be having that done, too hard to get under car for me.
Thanks much for the information.
