    W202 C200 rough running/won’t idle during cold start warm up phase

    Ok. Thanks noogieman, I actually tried unplugging it last night to see if it improved the issue as suggested by Dodpops above, but it still had the same issue on its cold start, although I do wonder if it was ever so slightly improved (it could've been just my wishful thinking?) but it still...

    W202 C200 rough running/won’t idle during cold start warm up phase

    Yeah he loves it too! He was so surprised. Still quite solid models those w202 ones. Front and side airbags, AC works good for clearing the windscreen and quite narrow A pillars on w202 too so not massive blind spots. Plus it means he’ll get a taste for my W202 C36 so will hopefully keep it in...

    W202 C200 rough running/won’t idle during cold start warm up phase

    Hi all. I’m sorry if this has been covered before: I’ve just bought my Son a 1998 W202 C200 (m111 engine) for a 1st car for his birthday (get him onto the brand early - so hopefully he won’t he won’t just sell my old mercs when I’m gone!) and at cold start it runs REALLY rough and won’t idle...

    S210 E55 - AMG locking diff? Which oil please?

    OK, Thanks Will. Unsure if they even fitted them to 210's and no AMG markings or cooling fins to identify them until 211's - the plot thickens! I'm thinking now mine doesn't have the locking diff - but just in case if I can confirm with Fichs the 75w-140 is a hypoid gear oil too (guessing it is)...

    S210 E55 - AMG locking diff? Which oil please?

    OK Pete, Thanks. Probably about the same HP maybe? As my 210 E55 is not supercharged - I think it was the 211's (onwards?)? that had that fitted (unfortunately!). Cheers :)

    S210 E55 - AMG locking diff? Which oil please?

    That thread you directed me too was really good for identifying if I have an AMG locking diff fitted or not - it would seem NO as I don't have that code 471 on my datacard. Nor do I feel slight 'transmission wind up' on very low speed full lock turns, plus when I jacked up the rear axle and...

    LSD servicing

    Really good thread everyone who contributed to it - Thanks. It seems my S210 E55 hasn't got the AMG locking diff as my datacard hasn't got the code 471. Also it is interesting that you would feel the LSD/locking diff at very low speed tight turns (a bit like transmission bind when you've got 4WD...

    S210 E55 - AMG locking diff? Which oil please?

    Thanks Pete. That part number shows as 'Genuine Mercedes Hypoid Gear Oil SAE 75W-85 Differential Transfer Lubricant 1L', but I will take on-board your caution and not take it as read. So your diff is not LSD (non-locking that means?) but does have AMG clearly written on it. My doesn't have AMG...

    S210 E55 - AMG locking diff? Which oil please?

    Thanks Pete. My diff definitely DOESN'T have any AMG markings on it, nor any kind of heat exchanger/coolin fins. It just has an MB part number for the casing: A210 350 01 05. So which did you and the mechanic decide for yours? the 75W-85 or the 75W-140? And do I understand correctly that the...

    S210 E55 - AMG locking diff? Which oil please?

    Thanks Gordon. How do I access a build sheet please? I've deciphered and checked the datacard but the diff is not mentioned. Is the buildsheet something different please? Thanks againfor replying mate - much appreciated.

    S210 E55 - AMG locking diff? Which oil please?

    Hiya, I've picked up a facelift 210 E55 estate which I LOVE and want to change the diff oil as part of the full service I'm giving it. I've checked WIS and all the previous posts and forums but are even more confused with the conflicting info. Does anyone know please if the diff should take the...

    Noisy (EGR?) Valve on 112 Engine in S210

    Hi, Got a loud 'ticking noise' coming from the area of this valve (pls see pic) sometimes, usually when cold. It's sat next to the ABS(?) or Power steering(?) hydraulic unit on the left-hand side of the engine bay. The valve in question has a cable connector going to it with just 2 cables it...

    Weird Noise S210 Climate control...

    Hi guys & sorry for late reply to your input: I've tried fully opening & closing the passanger face vent & that makes no odds. It does also still make the noise even when the aircon is off. I do only hear it on low fan speeds, but then again maybe that's because the sound of the fan at higher...

    Weird Noise S210 Climate control...

    Thanks Gentlemen.....and Merry Xmas !! Yes, I've done the pollen filters & it made no odds. Havn't lubed the blower fan bearing though - is that done with just a little spray lube of some kind? (worth mentioning though the noise doesn't change with fan speed) Yes, it is the climate control...
