    Any landowners here?

    Yeah, I say that's good enough. What do you do for feed?

    Any landowners here?

    Yep. We've three horses on eight acres (three fields). The horses are rotated like crops! :D

    Any landowners here?

    But what does ''agricultural opportunity'' mean? To me, that implies part bog, no drainage on the remainder, poor soil condition, no hedge rows, no fencing and possibly poor access etc. It could even be a small mountain. :D God only knows. If it was good agricultural land I'd expect a guide...

    230E on 3 cylinders

    There's several potential faults that could have caused the burnt valve and one could be it was running lean on that cylinder. I'd strongly advise fitting new injectors as a matter of course, they're past their best if original and they probably are too.

    Oh no. Anyway, I don't need a snooze at 8pm.

    The job has gone to his head. He should have stuck to impressing the young lads on Twitter or wherever. :D

    Couldn't agree more. Harris is dire and overrated (bar the fact he can drive).

    W163 ML 500 | Cracked block?

    You could use something like a digital thermometer probe for cooking meat. If you do get one, first test it on another car for base figures. Then try it on your rad while looking for a major difference in temp figures at the bottom. If you don't mind me saying so if you are in any doubt I'd buy...

    W163 ML 500 | Cracked block?

    Also too, it would be worthwhile bleeding the coolant system again just in case. Raise the front of the vehicle - axle stands would do and open the heater hose, inlet first from the engine bay while the engine is running. Do that a few times. A long short but worth the effort.

    W163 ML 500 | Cracked block?

    The blocked rad suggestion is a possibility if it wasn't flushed and checked. What type of impeller is on the water pump? The plastic ones are known to fail.

    Brake issue 98 c280 estate

    I can't really help as the last time I had similar brake problems was on a '74 BMW! Here's my 2p's worth. I'd be looking at the new master cylinder as the culprit but initially I'd have the system vacuum bleed first. Also check the servo operation. Next time the brakes stick disconnect the...

    Mercedes GLC Clonking and juddering on near full steering lock

    O.k, o.k..You win and I was wrong to suggest that the crabbing issue/online videos/Honest John and his ilk/waiver/all season tyres etc, etc will have any detrimental affect on used car valves. :thumb:

    The future of Driving.

    Don't forget the power of marketing and car manufacturers are probably one of the best at it, I reckon they could teach Coca-Cola, Guinness, Carlsberg etc a thing or two. I do think that the majority of new car buyer's generally have a greater interest in electronics than actual cars and the...

    Look just say you disagree with me, dislike my post or whatever. Ride a coach and horses through it if you like. Honestly, I'd have no objections but please don't expect me to start comparing apples and oranges especially when I don't know and have little interest in the oranges. Maybe, start...

    It might be wise to hold on to the propshaft also, you may need the front section - starter and flywheel also.

    Mercedes GLC Clonking and juddering on near full steering lock

    Of course it would, even for those that are not mechanically minded. I know for instance my good woman wouldn't put up with it. After all she would have more important things on here mind than concerning herself about whether a car is safe to drive. ;) Then there will be the scenario where...

    My 59k mile W202 C200 classic (auto)

    It's only guess on the basis of a tow bar being mentioned by your parts guy. What you really need to do is find out what M-B offered from the options list regarding towing. Is there any kind of unused socket or a redundant looking junction box in the boot area?
