I have a 2002 SLK 230K, 11000 miles. Unfortunately I have the problem with the diesel sound, 1000-2000 revs. with warm engine. As I understand itÂ´s the variable camshaft timing sensor causing this noise (wrong tolerances). IÂ´ve read some old posts on this topic on these forum, but I have not got a clear picture if MB has got a working cure for the problem. Futhermore, could this problem damage the engine? ThankÂ´s in advance for spreading some light on this.
