Hello, Pleasure to join this group of enthusiast. I acquired a 1995 C280 a couple of months ago. It was given to me by my elderly uncle.
It had a few mechanical issues. I have taken care of 95pct of the problems and I am enjoying the car. Very sporty feeling. Im used to driving big 8 cylinder 4 door american cars, and this was a surprise.
One of the problems I had with the car was solved when I read some of older threads that I found on this forum.
The problem I had was a engine light blinking on and off. I went to a Benz mechanic my friend recommended. He did a computer diagnostic check, no charge. He then told me it was a oxygen sensor.....DRUM ROLLLL.... $$$250.00 BUCKS... I viewed the thread and several members suggested I get a new gas cap. I went to Advancedautoparts and got a Slant cap for 13.00 Dollars(lucky Number). I have not had any issues or engine light in 2 weeks. I passed my state inspection!!!
I thank you fellow members for saving me some big Mula(money).
I will need someone to help me find a diagram, or a list of how many instrument cluster lights there are and the different colors in a 1995 C280. I need to replace them all.
Look forward to posting on the forum....Ciao - John
