Okay, so after work this evening I'm going to try to find and adjust the throttle pressure cable. Fingers crossed, that'll help. After that, I'll try adjusting the vacuum modulator (any tips...

I'll admit I'm pretty ignorant when it comes to automatic transmissions. Every other car I've owned has been a manual, so this is new grounds for me. I already ordered the new spring, at less than...

So from doing some reading, i've seen others having a similar issue. It wants to stay in second gear, and when it shifts it goes from third almost immediately to fourth. Replacing the K1 spring...

Transmission woes

1990 300E in great shape, sat for two years, now running again when I bought it. I don't know the history other than it was apparently very well maintained. When I drive it doesn't want to shift...

It's definitely pretty tar-like, yet otherwise the regulator seems to be perfectly functional. Maybe I'll get lucky and just need a clean and a re-grease

I'm wondering if this is the issue. The regulator itself seems to be in fine shape, and everything moves and the big gear isn't missing any teeth. But the grease is old and sticky, so the motor...

Yeah the wires all looked brand new. And the motor would work, albeit strangely, on it's own. Attached to the regulator it just clicked, nothing else. Mine is the passenger front door, which...

Well, the wiring in the door looked just fine. I swapped switches so I know it's not that either. When I push the switch I can hear a click coming from the door, so the motor seems to be getting...

I remember reading where you did that. Seems like it might help a bit at speed. These engines don't seem too hungry though, which I believe is the main issue. They're just very mild engines,...

As far as German cars go I'm also more used to BMW, which seems to be equally expensive but more "mod friendly." All of my past BMWs were tastefully modded with a slew of things. Except my M5,...

Well fortunately labor is free for me, since I'm too cheap to ever pay a shop!

From what I've been seeing, it looks like the H&R springs provide a nice looking drop. That's probably the route...
