  1. Battery Warning Illuminated

    R170 SLK-Class
    Thank you Sharkboards and TehRage. The battery shows 12.2 volts (engine off) but it drops to 11.86 volts when the engine is running. This indicates the alternator does not produce enough juice to recharge the battery. A failing alternator can be related to a bad voltage regulator such as worn...
  2. Battery Warning Illuminated

    R170 SLK-Class
    Thanks Sharkboards, Cleaned both battery terminals and cables for better contact but the battery charge light is still illuminated on the dashboard. I also checked the voltage regulator and it's good. The car seems running OK but I don't want to take a chance. Does anyone know what are other...
  3. Battery Warning Illuminated

    R170 SLK-Class
    I just noticed that the battery warning is illuminated at the right side of my 2001 SLK230 :frown. Does anyone know what is this about? Is there a problem with the recharging system or battery is going to be bad soon? Seems the battery is OK (2 years old) and, so far, the car is running fine...

  5. 2011 Transmission Filter Not Level

    W212 E-Class
    Strange, the transmission filter on my 2011 E350 does not stay straight/level when installed (the rear end dropping/pulling down lower). I noticed that the original filter was also installed the same way. I’m sure I installed the filter correctly since it requires some force to remove it. I...
  6. Goodbye and Thank you!!!

    W212 E-Class
    amg02, glad you found the car you like. I'm not sure Mercedes is more reliable than other brands if other brands received the same level of maintenance as Mercedes. So far, I have only driven Toyota (when was in college) and Mercedes in my life but my next car won't be a Mercedes. Still a luxury...

    W212 E-Class
    Does anyone know how to access fuel sending unit for 2011 E350? I already checked in the trunk. I guess it must be under the rear seats but I don't know how to remove the seat. Thanks,

    It could be a bad steering damper. If you are lucky, steering damper is around 25 bucks and 10 minutes fix.

    W212 E-Class
    Thanks Konigstiger, your information about the pan is confirmed. I also poured a small amount of the old fluid in a clear glass and under the natural sun light, oh yes, it's blue... it could be a disaster if I let the dealer changing my ATF on that day.

  17. Red or Blue ATF for 722.906

    My 2011 E350 comes with a 722.906 transmission. The vehicle was delivered in April 2011 but I can't find information when it was build to determine its transmission fluid is Red or Blue (built after June 2010). My vehicle is reaching 38K miles and I plan to change the ATF soon but don't want to...
  18. E350 vs E350 BlueTec

    W211 E-Class
    Hi Mike, I ended up with a 2011 E-350 (not Bluetec) almost 18 months ago at Hanna Imports, Raleigh NC. I went to Tysinger and they quoted me almost $10K higher than the one I got for the same model with similar mileage. So far I get an average of 29 mile/g on the high way (I got 31 mile/g last...
