    Vancouver, Canada. Sorry I should have put that in the OP.

  3. 2001 clk430 front popping sound

    C208/A208 CLK-Class
    It is most noticeable at rest or at slow speeds. My mechanics have stuck their heads under the car while the wheel is turned lock to lock. The noise is very evident but definitely not coming from the tires. The tires are the original Continental Extreme Contact DWS. BTW - the three mechanics...

    C208/A208 CLK-Class
    It does not but I think it is a reflection of the fact there is no load on the component(s) involved. Riddle me this, if it is the tires, why would it suddenly start now when these tires have been on the car since new?

    C208/A208 CLK-Class
    It's not the tires. Four mechanics have looked at it. I think at least one of them would have noticed if it was the tires. I wish it were that simple. Unfortunately, it's not
  6. 2001 clk430 front popping sound

    C208/A208 CLK-Class
    I have the same problem with my 2009 SLK300. It makes a popping sound as the wheels are turned. I had my guys look at it on a hoist and nothing is loose anywhere in the suspension. They tightened every component and nothing changed. They think the sound is coming from the rack and pinion unit...

    Thanks. I found something suitable on their website. Now I'm waiting to find out whether they will ship to Canada.

    W126 S,SE,SEC,SEL,SD,SDL Class
    I can't find a supplier for rubber mats for my newly acquired 300SD. The dealer can't get them and the local WeatherTech supplier can't find them, either. Does anyone know of a supplier?
  9. thinking of buying 1981 W126

    W126 S,SE,SEC,SEL,SD,SDL Class
    Did it! I took the plunge and bought the car. It makes good power without any noticeable smoke. This morning it started cold on the first crank and then it blew a little smoke going up our steep driveway which is normal AFAIK. So far the only thing that seems different from my old 300CD is that...

    diets and diesel JoeBob - it seems we have more than old diesel Mercs in common. See my blog at Dr. Jay’s Blog | A forum to discuss the documentary film, “My Big Fat Diet” , and the science of low carbohydrate diets.

    one that got away ... hopefully future owner of a 300D! I missed one near here that was unbelievable. A 1981 300D with only 46,000 km. It had been used only in summer months and was always garaged. It was silver with blue leather. I would have driven that till the day I died!

    W126 S,SE,SEC,SEL,SD,SDL Class
    I am looking buying at a reasonably well kept 1981 300SD. It has 183.5 Km (114 mi). The owner (who seems trustworthy) tells me he adds no oil between services. The compression is 22-23.5 (320-340). This seems a little on the low side to me although the numbers are tightly spaced. Is this a good...
  13. Why am I not getting better MPG with my TD?

    W210 E-Class
    Okay, downhill with a half-ton of beer in the back, and probably a tail-wind to boot, I can see how you can get that kind of mileage. We have a 2.5 km hill from our house to the highway. My wife, who drives the Merc the most, comes down in neutral. I still think we should be getting better than...
  14. Why am I not getting better MPG with my TD?

    W210 E-Class
    I would love to know under which conditions you are able to get 60 mpg!
  15. Why am I not getting better MPG with my TD?

    W210 E-Class
    Thanks for the advice. I will try these things and report back.
  16. Why am I not getting better MPG with my TD?

    W210 E-Class
    translation to mpg It is confusing. In the metric system a higher number means you are getting poorer fuel economy. Here's a translation: I am getting about 21 mpg (US). The EPA says I should get about 26 mpg. The average of self reporting on the EPA site is 30 mpg. All this is for mixed...
  17. Why am I not getting better MPG with my TD?

    W210 E-Class
    I have had a 1979 300CD in the past and currently have a 2001 SLK320 and a 1999 E300 TD. I am a newbie here and have a question about the E300 TD. It has 214,000 kms. I bought it a month ago and, after about 3000 kms, I am getting only about 11 litres/100km in mixed city/hwy driving. The EPA...
  18. 1999 E300 TD fuel economy

    General Mercedes-Benz
    We purchased a well-cared for 99 E300 turbodiesel about a month ago. It has 214,000 kms. It had one owner who always had it serviced at the dealer. After about 3000 kms of mixed city and highway driving we are getting about 11 litres/100km. I note that the EPA website (Fuel Economy) gives this...
