Hi, and welcome to the forum. Nice looking car my man.
Tell me, does your wife have any single sisters? Maybe I can score a car as well.
I cant offer much, but what i have been through or needed since I have my w210. Get yourself a decent diagnostic scanner, it helps when problems arise. Get yourself a transmission dipstick as these cars dont have one as standard and you will need one when you do the transmission oil.
Ok, I've gone through all available service records and plan on doing the following things in the following order. I'll be getting a shop to do the labor, but will be buying the right parts so I know they are quality. I'm at 104k miles.
Trans fluid and filter (kit on FCPEuro)
Engine/Transmission mounts (AutoHauz)
Crankshaft position sensor
Brake fluid flush
Things already done (high points)
Harmonic Balancer (1/6/2006 @ 34,851)
MAF (10/16/2006 @ 36,618)
Front rotors (12/14/2007 @ 39,143)
Power steering fluid (3/20/2014 @ 66,259)
Front brake pads (10/22/2015 @ 80,419)
Serpentine belt (12/3/2016 @ 86,445)
New battery and Oil Change (9/13/2018 @ 95,642)
As always, hit me with some knowledge or suggestions. I'm all ears!
What part of NC are you from. I am located in NC and have an 2001 E320 210.082 4-Matic. The AWD is nice in the NC mountains in the wintertime. I have 188k on the clock.
It is any indication of my fondness for the W210, this is my third, and first six cylinder in a W210. Other two were V8s (E55 AMGs) and I can honestly say all three have been wonderful. The E55s I sold a while back but neither one had to see the inside of the dealer for work. They went through tires faster than your average car, but were very well made and trouble-free vehicles.
I’ll definitely add those to the list. I actually don't mind the color. It's un-exciting but I kind of like it being closer to a "sleeper" since most people won't know it has a v8 under the hood.
I looked up the paint color too when I was searching for a tow hook cover. Definitely didn’t expect the smoke silver metallic color!
Lol, only one other sister and she’s married. I’ll probably be hiring out most of the labor until I can get my “shop” up and running in the new house. With 3 young kids I don’t have a lot of time (or energy) to tackle bigger car projects anymore
Jealous of your awd! I’m located in Macon, GA now. My father in law lives in Greensboro and has for the last 35 years.
Hello guys, I knew that my new(to me) E430 needed A/C recharge as I was told by the PO, lately I am trying to figure out what exactly is wrong with it before buying refrigerant and trying to recharge the system. So I know how much we value the sensor readings and "CODES", so here it goes, my #7...
I’m at a loss with my 2002 e320.
It ran rough since I bought the car and in the last few days it quit on me once at a stop sign and didn’t want to start back for a few minutes but then finally started.
Yesterday it died again and didn’t start again. After checking all the fuses and the...
I got this code from a MaxiECU diagnostic system, from the Engine module.
But the car seems to work fine electrically.
Does anyone know what this code could mean? Found no information on it.
My car is from 1996, 2.8 petrol.
I am trying to replace several AC components on my car: Condenser, Complressor, AC dryer and expansion valve.
Just got to the Receiver, Dryer and pulled it out oft car. It is a model A210 830 04 83. I ordered one by model year only and got a BEHR Hella part 8FT 351 196 671 made in 2019...
