    W124 200e Huge Flat spot and small backfires. Help if you can!

    Thanks for the info so far. I will check the vacuum pipes - I have been told that it's not possible for the ignition timing to be out on this car (don't know why) but I will get it checked. But why would it be intermittent if it's timing?

    W124 200e Huge Flat spot and small backfires. Help if you can!

    My 1991 200te has developed an intermittent problem which I suspect is a fault in the Fuel Injection system. The tickover is rough and for the first half of the throttle there is no power just a sound reminiscent of a 2nd choke opening too much, but if I floor the throttle it'll clear as the...

    200TE Auto - low power - hills are a no no

    Car starts and ticks over fine. On part throttle sort of ok. But once you give full throttle there is a loud induction noise, but no power particular at higher revs - wont rev much over 4000rpm. Going up hills is only really achievable on light throttle which means speed drops dangerously low...

    W124 200e engine temp sensors

    It's actually the other way round - i am stupid! The TE has the 4-pin nearest the rad!

    W124 200e engine temp sensors

    I have a 90 and 91 200e and 200te respectively. The TE is not running as it should, there are a couple of possible problems, but before I go too far can someone tell me whether the following is correct? The engine temp sensors are on the top of the engine at the front on the right hand side -...

    200E revs to 4k rpm then chokes

    Also - it;s drinking fuel!!! There is a hole in the top of the air-filter to enable access to some form of adjustment screw - pushing it down stalls the engine - what is it for, is it some form of mixture control?

    200E revs to 4k rpm then chokes

    I am sure it's a fuel issue but not sure why. The car runs pretty good but under load and full throttle, it just chokes itself - ideas please. I am not sure what a Throttle flap is!

    W124T interior courtesy lights

    Front interior light cluster works ok when front doors open. Don't work when either back door is opened, and rear loadspace lights don't come on at any time - whether for open doors or tailgate. Bulbs are okay. Is there an in-line fuse somewhere? Any other ideas.

    200E revs to 4k rpm then chokes

    An update but help still needed please. Exhaust leaks sorted and car gets better but still not right. Starts and ticks over fine. Not as much power as I would expect on acceleration but not too bad. However, holding kickdown and revving above 4 to 5,000rpm results in, laboured running I...

    W124 TE Load liner and rear seat backrests

    How do you get them off!!! Loadliner won't come off - I move it to the left as handbook says but I can't get it off. Should it lift up or come straight off, obviously something jammed and if I need to hit it I want to be sure I am hitting in the right direction! The reason I want to get the...

    200E revs to 4k rpm then chokes

    The saga continues. The cat has now been removed and replaced with a straight pipe. The rest of the exhaust has been removed and checked, no blockages. I did remove the Lambda sensor (I assume that is what it was - just before where the cat was), and it was black, and a piece had chipped off it...

    1990 200 Carb ABS dead but warning light only on with lights

    This is odd. The ABS is not working, but the ABS light goes out when started and will only light up when the side/head lamps are on!!! Is this some sort of MB clue as to what might be wrong? All opinions gratefully received. Peter

    200E revs to 4k rpm then chokes

    Wonder if you guys can help. 1991 200E starts ok and revs up to 4000rpm no probs but then just chokes itself - it is almost impossible to drive. checked OVP, fuel pressure, air box and no luck. Any other ideas? Someone suggested a blocked cat. Also Steering Box leaking badly, whats easier...
