  1. My E430 Weird CHeck engine light question.

    W210 E-Class
    I have another opinion about waiting on the O2 sensors. As they age they sloly mis-read the actual O2 content and drive the fuel mixture rich until they get really bad and the sensor voltage trips the CEL. Why is this a concern? Richer mix = more unburnt fuel = overheated cat converters. I have...
  2. AC Woes. I did read the sticky.

    W210 E-Class
    Certainly: The values other then 5 and 7 are about the same with no significant changes observed. I was focusing on sensor 5 and 7 so I really did not pay attention to the others. Sensor 5 (Evap Sensor) will vary from 32, when the compressor shuts off, to around 44 where it kicks back on...
  3. AC Woes. I did read the sticky.

    W210 E-Class
    Update: I recieved the evap sensor friday and popped it in. All is normal now. As to the can of R134A I previousley added, the pressure for sensor 7 is running between 14-21 bar so I guess it is OK. Blowing cold and I am happy. Thank you all for your assistance.:D Best, Ron Y
  4. AC Woes. I did read the sticky.

    W210 E-Class
    Thanks, I did find anther sticky, and with a link to another site, I determined that the evap sensor is likely bad. 139 is a default fail value. I ordered it and will replace it. Not bad, around $30.00 so worth a shot. As to values for #7 (Freon Bar) what is acceptable? I had 10 prior to putting...
  5. Transmission Cooler Line

    W210 E-Class
    Warning to older W210 owners! Just a comment to all W210 owners in the snow-salt belt. I replaced the water pump on the wifes 2000 E320 this weekend which required removal of the front facia. (I think this is the correct name for the large plastic protector under the radiator) Guess what, this...
  6. 2002 E320 What causes the cats to fail early?

    W210 E-Class
    I have a theroy, not proven. As the upstream (pre cat) oxygen sensors age they tend to drive the fuel mixtrue rich. That in turn will cause the cats to burn off more unburnt fuel, and run very hot and maybe even overheat. I bet this is at least part of the problem. I did change my Upstream O2s...
  7. Help, Radiator Fan comes on full speed after turning engine off

    W210 E-Class
    Thanks for your replies. I did search for this issue and found lots of fan not running posts, but did not see anything related to the fan running after shut off. I took her (Wife's) W210 on the road today (Field Engineer) and did not experience any warnings or after shut down fan running...
  8. Help, Radiator Fan comes on full speed after turning engine off

    W210 E-Class
    Update, I did find the fan control module. It is under the left headlamp assy. Easiest way I found to access it is remove the left tire/wheel, undue the front half of the plastic wheel well liner, fold it back, and then you may easily access the module. I pulled it, opened it up to check for...
  9. Help, Radiator Fan comes on full speed after turning engine off

    W210 E-Class
    Hi All: I tried searching the forum but did not see anything referring to this condition. First, the wife told me she saw a warning about the radiator fan and to go to the shop displayed while driving. She monitored the coolant guage and it remained normal. Upon returning home, and a few...
  10. Brakes Question

    W210 E-Class
    I would get a second opinion from a trusted indy. Four things I never ignore: Brakes Steering Suspension Tires A failure in any of these may cause loss of control and serious harm (accident). It is worth the time to have the rotors checked out and corrected if indeed the cracks exist. Easy...
  11. window reulator part

    W210 E-Class
    "Thx that is this part here right on this link Your Parts Search Returned 2 Part(s)" Yes, that is it. Bear in mind it does not fit as sold and you need to perform the modification as shown in the link I attached earlier. FYI, I purchased a new regulator (minus motor) when it oinitially...
  12. window reulator part

    W210 E-Class
    Do not replace the white slider, it will fail again. Ust the better Green one discussed in this sticky. http://www.benzworld.org/forums/w210-e-class/1400231-right-rear-window-regulator-slider-crash.html Best Wishes.
  13. Opinion on a potential 2001 E320 Purchase

    W210 E-Class
    Good Morning, the bottom line for a W210 this old is plan to spend some big$$ for service, especially if you don’t do some of the work yourself. Hopefully the PPI will point these out but there are many smaller items that may not show up. Examples are brake light switch, CPS, MAF, upstream O2...
  14. Engine mount service price

    W210 E-Class
    OK Thanks, based on your replies I had him break the estimate down. The labor seems spot on, the parts high. He is OK with me sourcing the parts (of course in that case, no parts warranty). I dont want to bother as I dont have access to a lift and dropping the front exhaust header pipe (4-Matic)...
  15. Engine mount service price

    W210 E-Class
    Hi All: Just a quick question. I really do not feel like tackling this, one of the few I will pass up. My MB indie (great MB mechanic) has quoted $735.00 for both engine mounts and trans mount, all OEM parts, 4-Matic sedan. In your opinion, does this sound reasonable? Getting tired of the...
  16. New windshield and rain sensor

    W210 E-Class
    I would stay away from the big national auto glass company. After first replacement there was significant optical distortion, they installed a second windscreen and it had the same issue. Then a third from a different vendor and it also had the issue which was apparent before installing it...

    W210 E-Class
    We cannot help you without the code info. Have the codes read, come back with the info and we can help you. Thanks.
  18. EGR Tube

    W210 E-Class
    Don't be so certain. If US spec, it will take three cycles to throw the CEL. The front O2 sensors will not see the proper change expected when the EGR is commanded to open and it will eventulally throw the EGR valve fault CEL.
  19. 4matic engine, transmission mounts

    W210 E-Class
    Thanks JL! This is a project I have been putting off for quite some time. One question, are there any gaskets for the exhaust connections that may need replacement? Thanks, Ron Y
  20. 97 E320 stuck in 2nd gear

    W210 E-Class
    Installed TCM upside down? interesting. While certainly not the correct fix, I was wondering if putting a small slit in the TCM cable cover before the module might reduce the chance if fluid entering the TCM, and give folks who are not experiencing any issues a place to check from time-to-time...
