i know the wiring harness issue is one.
how bout the 5 speed tranny? how can i tell if it is in good shape?
anything else that is faulty with this year/model that i should be aware of?

Wiring harness so far found to be affected majority of 1995 C36.
The M104 engine also notorious for Head-gasket leak in which the new part was fitted on mid 1996 production car, althought technically 1997 C36 should be worried free on this topic, there are some reported head-gasket leak on 1997 C36.

End Coil premature wear also found so far on 95 and 96 C36.


MAS Sensor would likely need to be replaced. It will go bad sooner or later (this applies to all Mercedes). If you have worn MAS the car will feel sluggish.

And the tranny issue affect 97 C36 and all year C43.


I know there is couple more, but that's all I can think of right now.



Regardz,
