  1. E350 Engine Whine - water pump failure?

    W211 E-Class
    Whining sounds more like power steering pump.
  2. E320 2006 CDI W211 vibrations

    W211 E-Class
    Cold vibrations is classic motor mounts and will only get worse. Easy and relatively cheap to fix.
  3. Axle Replacement

    W211 E-Class
    Axle? You mean differential? Those show up all the time and are fairly cheap $100-300 usd. Get one from Texas or California. The diffs shouldn't have a rusting issue inside unless someone took it through a deep water and got moisture inside.
  4. W211 Xenon (Bi-Xenon) headlights

    W251 R-Class
    if you are looking at ebay- there are xenons which are not bi-xenons. All Hella manufactured ones should be bi-xenons. Then, you car is either got ride height or not. You can go Euro or USA interchangeably. early vs late have different connector pinnings. But you can probably re-pin or...
  5. W211 2006 E320 CDI - loud engine

    W211 E-Class
    Wanna give more details on your car? How many miles are on it? Have you checked codes?
  6. Just did coolant flush on E320 CDI - some observations

    W211 E-Class
    Just a few note- and first and thank you! What hoses have been discontinued? First comment for those using this as a reference. I believe that G48 is the correct coolant. Secondly, Aftermarket Behr is aftermarket. They do not utilize the OE tooling... World has changed at Behr since being...
  7. Oil Change Using Total 5w40

    W211 E-Class
    I've been using the Motul 5W40 and my 06 loves it.
  8. Question on driveshaft center supports:

    W211 E-Class
    Never responded- but yes it's different. I believe it's tuned with the engine mounts to minimize vibration. Ya got 450,00 miles to the first one- why worry and simply buy another one. There are penty of dealers which sell online at wholesale pricing. Michael
  9. new 2006 cdi mod thread

    W211 E-Class
    Anyone here know from the EPC on the om648 designation for the AMG version in europe? Car is coming together- LSD, suspension, bigger intercooler. Turbo mods/ intake/ exhaust are in limbo on trying to get a tunner to do the software side of it.
  10. E320 Coolant Leak

    W211 E-Class
    The M112 engine/722.6 drive tran is a great combination. You might find an independant specialist in your area- pay him a few hours to go from one end to the other. I do know, that it's common to re-seal the v/c, replace the PVC hoses (Factory stuff lasts way better), spark plug wires and the...

    W211 E-Class
    Look on ebay- they make a insert especially for this application.
  12. Looking at buying a 2009 E350

    W211 E-Class
    just as a suggestion. I purchased an old copy of the EPC/WIS on ebay. Maybe $15, but then you have the factory service instructions and the parts catalog.
  13. Looking at buying a 2009 E350

    W211 E-Class
    Short answer- find lubricant products which meet MB spec. Mb has spec sheets on the internet for all fluids. If you haven't found a online mb dealership- I have been using Husker with lots of success. If there is a question on what fluid to use, OE stuff is always good. I've been using...
  14. Down 1 1/2 Quarts of Oil

    W211 E-Class
    FYI, I generally only fill to the mid point between min and max. Add one quart. Generally depending on the MB engine- they burn between max and min pretty quickly. What oil brand and weight are you utilizing? Perhaps a more stable oil or one of a thicker viscosity could be considered...
  15. 05 W211 e320 CDI headlight wiring question

    W211 E-Class
    Yes you can- doesn't have to be a water-tight crimp as the harness to the bulb is inside the housing.
