    Mercedes Engine Oil - 229.5 5W40 - 5 litre and Febi 1L ATF for 5-spd.

    I have changed cars and now have a dreaded DPF and a 7-spd box so have no use for these. £15 on collection from NE6 3BJ.

    W204 bad ride quality

    I think you need shocks like the Bilstein B4 Dampmatic to preserve the OEM ride quality. Not sure if Sachs list those?

    Fumes when opening driver’s door with cold engine

    Injector seals leaking ? Pull the engine cover off and listen for chuffing and/or smoke and that there is no "black death" around the injectors.

    Automatic transmission dipstick problem

    It's not meant to. There is a collar/stop at the business end that determines the correct position to give a true reading.

    C220 cdi stalls cold start .. help

    Which gearbox do you have? the 5-speed has a dipstick and you can check the level and the state of the ATF. Changing the Engine oil/filter will have no bearing. When was the fuel filter last changed ?

    Dipstick for auto box

    You probably have the correct one. It is not intended to stay in the tube, only for measurement. It does not hit the bottom of the pan. There is a constriction that sets the height of the dipstick.

    C207 2012 Brake Fluid Leak!

    Probably a brake pipe has rotted through. When mine went on my W204 (same chassis as yours) a competent local garage replaced both rear pipes for £250. MB will charge a fortune because they will want to drop the rear subframe.
