    OM651 Throttle Valve Problem

    Ah cool let us know how it goes. Yes the om651 is pretty rammed into the space on the c class, access seems difficult for a lot of the parts each side, but the belts and water pump are easy to get to. What's the mileage on the car you have if you don't mind me asking?

    Rattle on cold start up.

    Its the sad truth of the modern world, cars are deisgned and built for maximum profit and not customer satisfaction or reliabilty... Modern cars are sold almost the same way as a mobile phone contact, as long as they last the life of the pcp contract nothing else matters. or at least thats the...

    W212 2011 Estate Aux battery function list? Start Stop paramater list? Start Stop is Not Start Stopping!

    I replaced the aux battery on mine and it made no difference, but onchecking my main battery is at 12.2vso I am guessing the system doesnt activate the stop start function due to a below threshold standing battery voltage being to low. My car starts fine on the main battery as it is so I am just...

    Rough idle and no power this morning, no EML though

    So, I start the car this morning, after returning from a 80 mile trip the day before. Car starts but seems like its running on three cyclinders and very rough. Revs up fine though as normal. Sets off and it seems ok but gear box is hanging in gear and its got no power. Drives like a 1.6 diesel...

    Hi Guy as per the title, I changed the battery in my spare key which worked but now i get the error message "REPLACE KEY" when using that key. The original main key works fine. The key with the problem still unlocks the car, starts the engine, everything works apart from that error message...
