    Without changing gear, consult workshop. Stuck in P

    This is normal as it is apparently part of the security system as I was told by my specialist. Mercedes won’t supply the part without proof to make sure it isn’t a stolen vehicle

    ESP warning message

    Was it alternator? When my alternator went the battery obviously drained left me with the same issues you had!

    Fumes

    As above, the breather is a likely suspect but keep an eye on those injectors, it could be that the black stuff just hasn’t reached the top yet...

    E350 CDI EGR Issues?

    Well I cleaned the EGR valve had the codes reset and so far no more engine light or limp mode yet however after over 20 miles at between 40 and 70 DPF regen has been constant. I will keep posted...

    W211 E320 CDI V6 Maintenance

    If glow plugs are changed make sure the whole thing comes out. A garage attempted to take mine out on my old C270 and failed, must have sheared the tip off one which many miles later was sucked into the cylinder wrecking the engine. On stripping it down we found scored cylinder, battered...

    W220 squealing noise

    Could it be the Alternator pulley? made an awful noise when that went on my old OM612. I think the alternator on these may be water cooled, probably not where the leak is but maybe worth checking...

    W211 E320 CDI V6 Maintenance

    Oil cooler seal is a pain, but worth getting a good independent to do it if you don't yourself, a big job for a small seal! There are instructions floating around if you want to have a crack at it yourself.

    E350 CDI EGR Issues?

    Hi all, I'm having a spot of bother with my 2009 E350. It went into limp mode yesterday and the check engine light is now on. It seems to have been doing more DPF regens recently so I thought it may have been the differential pressure sensor for the DPF again, similar symptoms to when that...

    Chuffing sound from intake C270

    Pretty sure not injectors, definitely not injector seals, we have had them done and I know the sound and symptoms

    Chuffing sound from intake C270

    Hi all, have an issue with our old C270, I think I may have diagnosed the fault as a valve issue but wondering if it may be a timing issue. There is what seems to be a misfire and a chuffing sound from within the inlet manifold, this gets much louder when the air pipe is removed from the EGR...

    E350 CDI w212 high revs/gear changes

    I was really worried when I first got mine, a definite learning curve! Was really bad when the oil cooler seal went and there was a pool of oil just under the DPF, thought the car was on fire there was so much smoke! :-D
