  1. W211.026 CDI Injection pump fittings.

    W211 E-Class
    Does anyone out there in Benz land have a clue as to what size the spline socket that fits these fittings? About 25-30 splines similar to delivery valves on OM60X pumps. NOTHING in the EPC or the DIS!!! Help!
  2. E320 CDI transmission vibrations at idle

    W211 E-Class
    Motor mounts How many turns on the clock? The V6s seem to go way longer on MM than the I6s. I've got one of each, the V6 is at 140 turns on its original pins and the I6 is at 133 ready for set 3. When the I6 mounts degrade, it as though you can feel every power pulse throughout the entire car...
  3. Glow Plug resistance readings... 05 E320 CDI

    W211 E-Class
    Glow controller Both the OM648 and OM642 have suspect glow controllers (same manufacture)--I've done 4 of them, 2 each car failed after about 30K each time. That said, failed plug resistance can very GREATLY with engine temp--25 years of hands on diesel repair in the shop and good cold...
  4. om642 bluetec Oil Leak, Please help identify

    W212 E-Class
    642 Chain Stretch This is real! I was in the process of buying a 08 GL320 CDI and backed out, the chain slap was awful and it only had about 95K turns on the meter. Didn't think it was a problem for the 642, but obviously it is a problem!

  8. Help, please! 06 E320 CDI No Start

    W211 E-Class
    Almost seems like you've got a connector off some place that you may have missed. The no fire is no fuel. It'll fart after that much cranking just from residual heat if there's fuel. Xentry/DAS system would be nice right now, got my Chinese one recently and love it. Sorry-- Check the cheap...

  11. How many R107 300 SL's left in the USA?

    R/C107 SL/SLC Class
    The original owner sold it to a complete f'n idiot that had no clue as to what he bought OR what it means to own and properly care for a fine automobile. He paid 16K for it, and I had the pleasure of liberating it from him for 11K 6 months after he bought it in 2001. In a matter of 6 months...

  14. Transmission question

    W124 E,CE,D,TD Class
    Same same Me too, my 87-124.133 does the same. I haven't taken the time to change it, but I was given the same advise regarding the vacuum modulator from an extrodinarly good shop, as well as the Benz dealer. seams that as it ages, it becomes stiff and brittle, especially and obviously, when...

    W124 E,CE,D,TD Class
    It's called bad valve guides, the bain of the 103. You must go through spark plugs like they are free--Headwerks in Bloomington vill make der motor run like it was new in Stuttgard. You can eat off the floor and the kiaser that runs the joint returns everything that comes to his shop to a...
