hello guys, i have bought a 1999 ml320 in 2008 and drove it till now, and had no problems. i am really wanting to keep the vehicle, but i will need some help to kind of restore it.. well not really restore it but to kind of fix it. ok.
first of all i need the rear shock and strut assembly, if anyone has a website with like salvaged ml's or even new ones for reasonable prices. also, if anyone has instructions on how to change them.
second, i have the machine gun lock symptom on my front passenger door, and would like to know what i need to change and instructions on how to change that..
third, at about 700-1000 rpm, there is like a sound by the engine but im not sure if its the cams. it does not sound like cam knocking because its only between those rev's and for sure its not engine knock.. (engine mounts?)
fourth, my transmission is giving a few symptoms downshifting from 2nd to 1st theres a bump. could this be the 13 pin connectors, or should i go and get it checked out? i have put it in the computer and it said p0700 implausible gears and slip. the oil level is ok.
fifth, i have this little vibration at idle in gear. could these be the engine mounts? my friend changed some engine mounts on his 98 s class and there was a difference in the ride, he had rough idle as well. or is it something more complicated?
sixth, i have kind of like an oil leak, but its very minimal, and i have looked under the vehicle and its not from the oil pan, its from somewhere around the powersteering pump but its engine oil not powersteering fluid. (filter?)
i used to know a website with all kinds of vehicles it was something with "tom's ....." and there i saw a bunch of ml's that were parting out and i would be interested in that website.
i know its alot of things i am asking but i really need help restoring this vehicle because its a great vehicle and i love it, i would really appreciate it and will send a gift to a person that helps me out with all these problems and to get my ml to run like new. MERCEDES FOR LIFE! thanks and have a good night.
