  1. W201 190-Class
    Hi I'm new to this forum and as of recently the engine in my 190e 2.3-16v has began to fail, I love the car, don't want to get rid of it and would not mind more power soooo I've been consider an engine swap. I've heard that many m104s would fit well in the car and am wondering how well exactly...
  2. W210 E-Class
    Maybe someone could help me. I've got an m104.995 engine and a standalone Speeduino ECU (like megasquirt). I've read that the wasted spark coils that the engine has can't be wired directly to the ECU. I've read about COP (coil-on-plug) solution, but don't know which ones will work. Also, someone...
  3. W124 E,CE,D,TD Class
    Hey everyone so I just picked up a 95 e320 wagon and I've been chasing a few issues. When I first got it, it would start but not rev. The moment you gave it gas it would die. Code 4 was popping up so I replaced the maf. That made it drive fine but it idles at 12-1300rpms in P/N and in gear it...
  4. W124 E,CE,D,TD Class
    Hi everyone! So... another W124 is gonna be saved from a dark fate... this time a Coupe :) After some months of "pursuit", the deal was finally done today on a local, very neglected C124... It is a 1992 300CE-24 with around 136k Miles (219K Kms). The main issue is rust. LOTS of rust. I had...
  5. W124 E,CE,D,TD Class
    The car ran out of fuel on the road. When it happened I didn't suspect it was a fuel issue. Because the gauge was indicating ½ tank (still is) but when I knocked the tank it sounded empty. Then it was just cranking dry(no power bursts) but pump whirls when key is on. I topped 10 liters and it...
  6. W201 190-Class
    So I have a 1987 190E 2.6 and as you all know it's not exactly a speed demon. I'm a college student so money isn't readily available, but I want to save up to do an m104 swap. I'd like to know a rough ballpark of how much it might cost (going to buy new trans as well). Also what kind of parts...
  7. W124 E,CE,D,TD Class
    I have a 1995 e320 with a m104.992 that I am turboing. I am megasquirting it and I am now looking at intake manifolds to get. I found an intake from a 1991 300sl (r129) that has an m104.98 (24v) and was wondering if anyone knows if the two manifolds are interchangeable? Im planning on...

    M104 HEAD GASKET REPLACEMENT Hi. Imight, at some point, be facing a head gasket replacement on an M104.980 CIS-E (KE-Jetronic) engine from a 24 valve W124 (300E-24, 300CE-24, 300TE-24, very similar to the M104.980 off of the R129 300SL-24), one of the M104’s Achilles heel -though it needs...
  9. W124 E,CE,D,TD Class
    Hi All….I am wondering my fate here and I think I know my answer but I have recently mounted the oil pan on my 1991 300e with the M104 engine. All is good except for what looks like a total disaster as the gasket closest to the bell housing is hardest keep mounted when installing thus having an...
  10. W140 S-Class
    Today I bought my first Mercedes-Benz. This is a 1998 W140 S320 with the M104. I love this car! It was a single family vehicle prior to my purchase. It’s amazing. It has a few small flaws like the soft close doors and trunk work intermittently. My bigger concerns are within the engine, it’s...
  11. W124 E,CE,D,TD Class
    Hello, I've changed my head gasket and done this all after the book. When I start the engine, it runs all good in neutral and idle is at 700rpm. But when I first put it in drive, the idle goes down to between 200rpm and stalling. The same thing happens when I turn the steering wheel. Now I...
  12. W201 190-Class
    Hey there everybody, long time lurker first time poster. Cell, my most recent acquisition is doing weird things on start up. sometimes it’s totally normal, sometimes it doesn’t wanna start at all, but will happily crank the battery dead- And sometimes (most frequently) it does this...
  13. R129 SL-Class
    Hello fellow enthusiasts! In catching up on some maintenance I wanted to order a new serpentine belt for my car: WDBFA63E5SF111398 Here's where the confusion begins. Various sources list different belts for this car. To give a few examples: Continental/ContiTech is quite clear about it. Engine...
  14. W124 E,CE,D,TD Class
    So I just purchased an e320 wagon with around 270k miles on it and the transmission is shifting wierd. When I drop the car into d it won't go into gear but if I drop it into 3 it will, I assume this is caused by theshift linkages. When I put it in 3 it takes a few seconds before the transmission...

    Hi all, I am currently refreshing my 300E24v. It is an 1989 with 280k km, it had the original HG. I have completed the head and it’s time to address the worn cylinders. Does any of you know whether it is possible to replace the M104.980 block with a M103.983? Is this a direct fit and can i...

    New here, apologies if format is wrong. Recently picked up an auction 94 E320 Wagon and started a valve cover gasket replacement and the plate that covers the ignition coils is broken underneath and I’m having a time sourcing a replacement plate. Not sure what the part itself is called but the...

  18. W140 S-Class
    Hello, i'm new here at Benz world. I recently bought a 1997 s320 in good shape, but It doesn't read the coolant temp. I changed the 2pin sensor thinking It was the one that controls the gauge, but i notice another 1 wire sensor with no wire at the thermostat housing, i think that is the one that...
  19. W201 190-Class

  20. W124 E,CE,D,TD Class
    Continuing with my quest for a relatively cheap W124 to work on, an ad popped up from the wild about a VERY CHEAP W124 E320 Coupe (320CE) with a Dogleg 5 speed. The thing is, considering my possible budget, my options are tight to Saloons, not coupes. This one appeared to be too good to be true...
