Hello fellow forum users,
with the forum displayed in updated stage also when not logged in and with only sporadic receipt of email notifications from Benzworld (3 years old problem), I used to frequently check for new threads or new replies in threads via smartphone. But since March this year the forum‘s main pages are not displayed in updated stage anymore but in several weeks old stages if not logged in on the smartphone. Plus, the forum‘s “full version“ can not be displayed on the smartphone anymore either when not logged in. … I never store passwords on any device and having to log in each time to check the forum on such a small device makes assisting in troubleshooting threads too complicated for me.
The forum owners / technicians have been repeatedly reminded & asked to fix this problem. But earlier this week I was informed that they are not planing to do that in the near future.
I was planing to post a lot more detailed CIS-E related info & advice that is commonly practically unknown (also here at Benzworld) but important to know for proper maintenance and very helpful for targeted troubleshooting. But, with the forum looking like a hardly active place for (new) visiters who are not logged in, I am afraid that it will soon sink to insignificance and not be worth the efforts. Under these circumstances I‘ll confine myself to maybe occasionally posting a few things in threads of my own.
If the forum will be repaired and I have time, I will assist in other member‘s troubleshooting threads again and post detailed test procedures including detailed interpretations of test results which can not be found in the FSM. … Members who are interested in my advice (particularly re CIS-E) can send me a PM with their private email. I will occasionally log in on Benzworld via PC and check for incoming PM‘s.
Take good care of your ‘golden era‘ MB‘s everybody … their CIS-E engines played a significant & pleasant role in my early engineering career. … I particularly recommend to mind this thread:
It is so far the only KE-Jetronic thread I have posted at Benzworld. Albeit it is unfinished, it contains hints you will most likely not find in any published book or service manual.
