  1. W210 Wheel Information

    W210 E-Class
    Yes, still have them but you are too far fro here. Shipping may not be practical. Thanks,
  2. Dirty air filter kills fuel economy!

    W210 E-Class
    Plus, the thread/topic is about fuel economy. I do not see a single mention of that in that long post.
  3. Dirty air filter kills fuel economy!

    W210 E-Class
    Sir K had been on at the very beginning. For carbureted engine, it was true that a partially clogged air filter affects both fuel economy and performance. That was the conventional wisdom so people always think a modern (injected and computer controlled) engine works the same way. Fortunately...
  4. Clear me up on fluids please

    W210 E-Class
    Ed: I have been running Maxlife ATF in both my W210 transmissions, the transfer case in the 4Matic, and the power steering in the sedan for many years now. Maxlife had a reformulation a few years ago and the new one is even better, IMHO and experience using them. It is now a full synthetic...
  5. Car Stuck in 2. Gear, Oil in the EGS (gearbox computer)

    W210 E-Class
    Did not follow your whole story why you needed an overhauled complete gearbox but here is info you need for the transfer case. Good luck.
  6. More correct fluids questions

    W210 E-Class
    Len: The Q fluid is the same as the 000 989 88 03. These (along with DEX III) are used in our W210's and older recirculating ball steerings. The BQ fluid is synthetic and for the newer cars. (Pentosin CHF 11S). That hydraulic fluid is for convertibles and pre-W210 wagon and sedan...
  7. Battery Replacement!!

    W210 E-Class
    Hi, Figuero. I am fine. Things are pretty much the same. Your friend used to work here has retired, I think. How are you? The reason I mentioned about your AGM battery is the fact that they are also made by East-Penn, the same company makes the Autozone AGM batteries. Hope yours is OK.
  8. Battery Replacement!!

    W210 E-Class
    Figuero: What brand is your AGM? There has been a bad batch on the market. Since only very few companies make them, it could be the battery. http://www.consumerreports.org/cro/news/2014/12/some-duralast-platinum-agm-car-batteries-fall-short-in-consumer-reports-life-test/index.htm 20 mA is a...
  9. Anyone else had trouble with the throttle body valve sticking?

    W210 E-Class
    Yes, I have seen this on the M104 motor. I have the same car. I cleaned mine a good 4-5 years ago and no trouble since. Here is an old post of mine. http://www.benzworld.org/forums/w210-e-class/1495620-damn-sticky-throttle-any-ideas.html#post3937301
  10. Direction on refreshing suspension

    W210 E-Class
    I have not seen a front kit but there is a kit for the rear. It included all 4 pieces (8 for both sides) except the control arm. The part number is 210 350 99 99. The price should be between $200 - 250 made by Meyle from the likes of autohausaz or pelican, which is a good deal. It includes...
  11. rusted transmission lines

    W210 E-Class
    This diagram is for my 4Matic wagon but I think it is the same or at least very similar for your sedan as well. Glad to hear the surfaces of the lines seem to be better protected from corrosion. Did you buy all the above parts? Mines are still OK but someday I may need to do it as well...
  12. Is the FL W210 any good, or are the rumors ture?

    W210 E-Class
    All the W210 wagons I see around here have rust on the right side of the rear hatch or starting to look different from the rest of the hatch. It is just another universal design/manufacturing flow. Somehow water can seep down on that side and the rust-proofing of the hatch panel is not up to...
  13. Is the FL W210 any good, or are the rumors ture?

    W210 E-Class
    I have two W210s for a long long time. There are some common mechanical and electronic issues with these cars but they are reliable and durable once you know the issues and take care of them. This forum is a good resource to sort them out. IMHO, the worst enemy to these cars is...
  14. W210 Wheel Information

    W210 E-Class
    The problem is that these cars are not worth anything on the market. :) When I got my 2015 Outback, the dealer wanted to give me less than 10% of the purchase cost (when it was new) of my 2003 E320 4Matic wagon with only 100k miles. For that kind of $, I decided to keep it.
  15. W210 Wheel Information

    W210 E-Class
    Yes, Sir K. Long time but I still have the same two W210's. Wanted to get a newer wagon but all these air suspension stuffs scared me off.
  16. W210 Wheel Information

    W210 E-Class
    If anyone needs some OE wheels and (updated) lugbolts with completed center caps and is willing to come here to pick them up :), I have a couple sets of W210 wheels. One set is pre-facelift and another is post-facelift. (10 vs 11 spokes). I actually have a couple 15" sets as well and they fit...
  17. How long do your headlights last?

    W210 E-Class
    I never replaced the headlight in my 1997 E320 and I have owned that since the year 2000. The 2003 E320 4Matic wagon is a different story. I had to replace headlight about every 6 month to 18 month (and I have records). The worst bulbs I used were the Silverstar. They lasted only 6 months.
  18. door trim parts - exploded view? - need part #

    W210 E-Class
    Ledge (bottom right): 210 690 72 62 The clip is 009 988 03 78 if you need some. Now follow what Plutoe said, get onto the (free) EPC.
  19. door trim parts - exploded view? - need part #

    W210 E-Class
    Item 53 looks to be the rubber/plastic trim on the bottom of the door.
  20. Stuck in parking gear with car running

    W210 E-Class
    The Camry "Lexus" would be the ES. The GS is a bit different. It was first based on the Toyota Aristo in Japan but the Aristo was discontinues so the GS is by itself now.
