  1. W140 S-Class
    I’ve recently been contemplating on upgrading from my w201 to the big Benz, 140. With current gas prices in Canada, diesel, specifically biodiesel (veggie) has been sitting in my mind for a few months. I have already figured out how to get the grease and how to separate the fat from the oil to...

    I was wondering if anybody has any knowledge about if swapping an om606 Mercedes to a w208 chassis if I could remap the ECM from the 4.3l m113 engine to to work for the om606 motor

    Here's what I've done so far. *New OEM glow plug relay *New Bremi pencil plugs *New battery I've tested the new plugs and their connections and they test fine (Ohms test) I've checked the strip fuse and physically removed/inspected it and it's fine. Also tested across to the fuse from the plug...

    Hello again, I figured out the timing so now I'm moving up top and I noticed when I test fit the injectors that there seems to be a part missing from the cylinder head. It looks like something is supposed to go in those splines but I have no idea what they are called. Is it a type of seal or...
  5. Diesel Discussion
    After months of searching forums and trying to troubleshoot I am in need of assistance. I recently acquired a 08 E320 diesel that was sitting because the previous owner did not want to pay to get the oil cooler seals done. The vehicle has 190k miles and I didn't have any codes before I started...

    hey everyone I recently noticed a puddle of coolant under the car. I lifted the car up to see where the leak was coming from but I am having trouble finding it. The only sign I can see is that it’s leaking from the back of the engine above the oil pan. Car doesn’t overheat when I’m driving but I...

    Hey everyone I’m new to the Mercedes diesel world. I recently bought a 1987 300d with the famous OM603 with 199k it had a bad pump with a whole in the side of it.

  9. W220 S-Class
    So a couple of weeks ago I ran out of gas in my 2002 s500. My roommate brought me a 3 gallon gas can of gas. Well he grabbed the wrong one and I put 3 gallons of diesel in my empty gas tank. Since it had already ran through my system, I let my car run til it ran out but now runs like crap...

    Hey all, been browsing through your sweet forum for a few years now and this is the first time I've had a question that I can't seem to find an answer to anywhere. I've been daily driving a 1979 240D for the past year and working diligently on simplifying the electrical system. Glow plugs are...
  12. Diesel Discussion
    Was driving when all of a sudden heard a pop of air and had no more power and couldn’t go more than 20-35 mph. The codes that popped up were P0171 , p0101, p0670, p0100, p0111 I’m thinking It could be the maf sensors gone bad. Would love to hear any feedback and recommendations

  14. W123 E,CE,D,CD,TD,TE Class
    So I recently came into my 300TD at the end of the previous year after tantalizing myself about owning one of the "immortal diesels", and immediately set upon upkeeping it, oil change, fluid exchanges, filter replacements, etc, and thus adjusting valve lash. In my enthusiasm and eagerness I...

    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...

  17. For Sale/Wanted/Trade/Giveaway
    This is an all-mechanical fuel injection pump which belonged to my 1987 W124 250D (European model) with the OM602 5-cylinder, non-turbo diesel engine. This pump might work on the North American W124 300D 2.5 and W201 190D 2.5, both non-turbo as well, but I am not sure. Identification numbers...

  19. Diesel Discussion
    I've owned my '84 300SD for four years now, and I've loved every minute of it. But one thing that has annoyed me to no end is how quickly the inside of the windows form a nasty oily film. My climate control doesn't work, so I often roll down the windows to let air in while I'm driving. But when...
