The dealership quoted me $18,000!
18k?! What the actual Fuk?! The single most expensive om648 injector price I've ever seen at a Mercedes dealer was $1,200 a piece. Even at that rate, they want to charge you $10,800 labor to clean up some black death and change injectors?

Or are they quoting you for a new engine?!

A whole engine is like $13k. I be that's a new engine plus the 20hr labor cost. Crazy. I wish I could come get it or work on it for you for a weekend. I hate to see these cars messed up because dealers don't pay attention during routing maintenance.

Oh man. Is there a local mercedes owner's group or anything like that? I bet somebody would be willing to help work on it if there is. That would suck to feel like you have to give up on it. I think if it runs, it's probably fixable. Even if you need a new valve cover and other top side parts.

Mine's at a local shop here in Nashville waiting on a new (used) engine for replacement since I was dumb and bought one with a knock that would probably eventually have grenaded itself.

Yes. It's got a top end knock... Wait a minute. If my new engine came with injectors I'll sell you all the parts you need to repair yours if I have them. Valve cover, injectors, oil cap thingy...

Message me.
