    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...

    So when it comes to my driver said window, it never completely rolls down when pushing the down button. It rolls down maybe 70%. I have to have the driver door open for it to completely roll down. It was no problem for me, been doing so for about a year now. Did it a couple hours ago, and when...

    I just noticed this broken hose, yesterday, in my 1998 S320. The hose is on the passenger side of the engine compartment, comes from the hood down to the break, and extends into the front of the car. It has what looks like both a vacuum line as well as a 2-wire electrical line. I can't trace...

    I bought a 1993 600 SEC. "Most" systems work well but the ADS is giving me headaches. I didn't notice when I bought it is that the ADS dash light does not come when you first turn on the key...missing bulb probably from previous owner. You know where this is going. There were no stored...

I don't see sign...

    Huge nightmare! My independent shop replaced my old ignition tumbler on my W140, 1998 S320, with a different key than the original. No biggie. Except, for some reason, they cut the key (or broke it off) from the only key fob I had. Again, not a huge issue. I still had the original key, as they...

    I would like to share a question with you. Have any of you noticed that the color SMOKE SILVER has two shades? One in silver and the other in gold.
