    How costly this s55 really is.

    So far, all this down to a previous garage different owner not flushing the hydraulic fluid when a previous pump and valve block were changed, only 6 years ago.

    How costly this s55 really is.

    Finally got it back after a month waiting for a tandem pump from Germany and a nice bill for £3,000. After the one for £2,000 for radiator etc, plus last year £700 for new eis. I always said I'd scrap a car if its repairs came close the the buying price , well it ain't far off now.

    Update s55 abc issue

    Two weeks in the garage now, new valve block fitted, rear level sensor, pressure sensor now looks like pump gone as won't hold pressure. For a pump with only 18,000 on it not good. Unfortunately no pumps available from mb, garage looking nation wide, sounds like a remortgage job.

    Abs visit workshop just came on s55

    Malfunction in pressure supply. Plenty of oil in reservoir, no leaks on floor, only just got it back spending £2,000 for new rad, long story. What's the chance if a sensor going bad. Can't take it to where I normally go as to far.

    Possible head gasket or not.

    It's going to the garage on the 7th Jan, as they want to run tests on the head, I did the chemical test the other day and was fine.

    Coolant head gasket test

    But would a failed head gasket be able to build up high pressure in the coolant system and blow the radiator, this car doesn't overheat at all when driving. The only odd thing is when the engine is running you can't see it dripping, but when I put the pressure tester on the expansion tank it...

    Coolant head gasket test

    As you know I have the s55 amg with new radiator that is leaking by the seams, it's going back in the garage as they want to run tests for possible head gasket, I did the head gasket coolant chemical test and the blue liquid stayed blue. Is this test accurate or is it not.
