    Hi guys. I’m leaving the country and need to sell my baby. I’m in Dallas, Texas. Thank you all forum members for precious information written over the years here that allowed me to pinpoint issues and fix small things myself or save $$$ on diagnosis and bring parts to my mechanic (and piss him...

  2. W124 E,CE,D,TD Class
    I'm having an intermittent but growing-in-frequency failure of the instrument cluster in my 87 300d. When it occurs, I lose everything on the left side, keep the odo and speedo, and lose everything on the right side. The most uncomfortable part, however, is that all vents to the engine...
  3. W123 E,CE,D,CD,TD,TE Class
    I know its rare and i basically have it sold but if anyone needs a 717430 for a manual conversion i got about one of 50 maybe in the states you got 48 hours to come sweep it up 2g and you can take the whole car.

    Hi all, On our property we have a 1979 Mercedes’ 300D that has not been started in about 5 years. I remembered starting it about that long ago, and all seemed to be fine. Apart from the vacuum system not really functioning at all - you would always need to hit the cutoff lever on the injection...

    Trying to figure out if a 1977 300D in Sarah yellow is rare, haven’t seen one sell before? Any insight would be great
  6. W124 E,CE,D,TD Class
    Hi! I just purchased my first MB, it is a 92 300d with 150,000 miles on it. This is not asking for advice but rather I am sharing my experience so that maybe it could help someone else. The previous owner replaced all of the brake calipers, pads, hoses, and lines. When I drove the car it would...
  7. Diesel Discussion
    Hi! I have been searching for a while trying to find a diagram and/or list of all the parts of the vacuum lines (connectors/hoses and diameters/ect.) and haven’t had any luck. Are there any sites that could steer me in the right direction? Want to go ahead and knock it all out at once while I’m...

    I was driving home after some freezing rain and turned right with the signal on. It automatically disengaged the light after the turn, but the switch/lever itself is stuck in the right turn position. It doesn't have any give if I try to move it. I've looked around and haven't found anything...

    So I have a friend. I just want everyone to know that. Anyhow this friend that I have, he had a 85 300D that got hit from behind. Insurance paid out and he got an 85 wagon. Car goes to scrap auction or whatever you call it, and a dismantler gets ahold of it. This dismantler owner has a 300CD...

    I am preparing to do valve stem seals on my ‘87 300D (om603) with the head still on. I’ve done this job on other vehicles and am completely comfortable with the job and it’s potential pitfalls. Can anyone please show me what the correct valve spring compressor tool looks like? I’ve searched...

    Long story short, my granddad bought an '82 300D in nearly pristine condition. 45k miles, all original parts as far as I can tell, and it's been garaged its whole life. He asked me to look into how much it might be worth, and most of the listings that I can find online are much higher mileages...

    Hi MB Friends! I've recently moved back to California from NYC and after surviving without a vehicle for the last 6-7 years, I am in need of a "daily" driver (aprox. 5 miles a day max) with an occasional trip to SF and a small trip here in there. I should add, as of now, I work mostly from...
  13. W123 E,CE,D,CD,TD,TE Class
    I have a 1982 w123 300D turbo diesel automatic. I have searched for threads about problems like mine but came up empty handed. Basically I came up to a red light the other day and when I let off the brakes to move ahead the car didn't move, gave it a bit of throttle and nothing. Put it down in L...

    Hello all, I’m new to working on cars in general and started working on my grandpas old 1984 123w 300d. I did a coolant flush and the coolant that came out was green but the Zerex coolant I bought that was recommended for “all Mercedes models” is blue. Can I use the blue coolant after flushing...

    Hi all, I'm new here and am looking to buy my first w123 and first mercedes! I found one in my price range in pretty good condition being sold somewhat locally (I would have to drive from Oakland, CA to Willits in Mendocino County to go get it!) but am hoping to get some insight about whether...

    Hi, Are there any good trustworthy mechanics in the Dallas / Fort Worth area that work on these classic W115/W123 models (I have an 82 300D and a 75 240D) The last mechanic I brought my 240D to disabled the engine, told me the car was worthless and then offered to take it off my hands for...

    Hey all, I am new to this forum. I just purchased a 1983 300D. One of the check valve vacuum lines is broken. The one leading to the transmission/EGR. I have searched for a replacement, only to find that it no longer exists. I am sure a used one will pop up eventually, or I can pay the absurd...

    Hi guys, I ordered an injector line for no.5 cylinder on pelican parts for my 1989 NA 300D with the OM603. I confirmed with the customer service that 602-070-0433 was the correct part number and the picture was the same as mine. However this arrived today? I don’t know what it is off but...

    I lurk in a few forums, read a ton, but haven't posted much. That's a tribute to the wealth on info out there. I've managed a lot of my own work over the short time we've finally owned a W123, but turbos are still a grey area to me. To be fair, a lot is until I get dirty and deal with it...

    Hello everyone!, Very quickly I present to you one of the most recent members of the family! It was kind of a Barn Find... More like a "Farm Find" as it wasn't actually in a barn... A Mercedes W124 300D Turbo from 1987, originally from Canada. We were actually in this place to go get a W124...
