    How do I check a fuse to see if it is good or bad?? It's for my 1980 450SL fuses that are located inside on passenger side. I included a picture of the type of fuses below: I'm not too familiar with these fuses, so any advice would be much appreciated!

    Does a D-jet engine have a vacuum pump? I can't find it. Now that my car doesn't have a vacuum, I have to find out the cause. I found no belt attached to the smog pump. Does this have anything to do with vacuum? Where is vacuum pressure first created?

    I've been trying to figure out the cause of a transmission leak I've been dealing with for a while. I was assuming it was just the transmission pan gasket being compromised but further inspection seems like fluid may be leaking down from above the pan bolt. Hell, maybe both that and the pan...

    I'm currently looking to replace my front calipers on my 73 450sl but I noticed there's a huge price difference for aftermarket calipers. The cheaper ones are described to be from chassis # 009730 to 062585 and are around $60 minus core and the significantly more expensive calipers say "To...

    Does anybody know the part number for the thin paper gasket that goes between the two halfs of the air flow sensor assembly? The 560sl uses a big metal flange but I can't find anything for the 450sl. Nothing listed on my EPC.

    Hey guys i got a 76 450sl last spring and have loved it. It always had a bit of a hard time starting (about 5 second) but I didn’t think much of it. Last fall though it started to take longer and longer to start. I ended up having to move and didn’t have a place to park it so i left it at my...

    I recently purchased a 1978 450SL from what I thought was a reputable dealer and pre-purchase inspector. Learning point for me, but here we are. The car starts up fine when cold, and runs well at speed. When decelerating to a stop on a warm engine, though, the car will sputter for two to five...

    Hi all, Started to drive my 76 450SL often these days. I'm puzzled by how the M117 engine is misfiring. There are no problems when the engine is cold and semi warm, it idles very smooth. However a while after it gets to operating temperature it misfires randomly at rpms lower than 3000...
