    W124 320CE EngineTemperature

    I've had to do a bit of research having been floored by your question [I really hadn't a clue!] Seems that the engine oil cooler, if fitted, is co-located and directly in front of the oil filter housing. From a couple of images I've seen [of what I think is the engine oil cooler] I would...

    W124 320CE EngineTemperature

    Many thanks Graeme for your very helpful test, explanation and link. I'll check the car when I'm able, which may not be until the weekend. Incidentally, the loom was refurbished by Sileck less than 1K miles ago - at that time connectors were clean but I accept there is no substitute for checking...

    W124 320CE EngineTemperature

    Thanks for the timely advice, I'll certainly do so. I've been using surplus distilled water, generated by our domestic dehumidifier, to gradually flush the engine................I'm making progress, the water when drained from the radiator is getting cleaner each time I drain it. Couple more...

    W124 320CE EngineTemperature

    Thanks for the reply, I'll do the sender test when I can. As coupe addict says in his reply, he experiences implausibly low temperature readings.

    W124 320CE EngineTemperature

    I know that the thermostat isn't missing, it's only about a year old and was fitted when the new radiator was done. Of course this doesn't mean that the thermostat functions properly now.

    W124 320CE EngineTemperature

    The needle on the dial certainly moves from rest to around 60 degrees quickly enough as the engine warms up, it is just that regardless of factors it doesn't go any higher - I would have expected my recent drive in really hot conditions would have registered some temperature increase on the dial.

    W124 220 engine harness

    Seems that you havn't read the post that I left here on 15th January 2015 after all - given your predicament it might be worth a quick read. The bill including vat and postage was under £400. Steven

    W124 220 engine harness

    I'm just adding to earlier ringing endorsements of the splendid service that Simon Lambert and his team at Si-Leck provide. On 15 Jan 2015, I posted a brief note here after Si-Leck rebuilt the loom for my 320CE. Steven

    I promised an update after the engine loom was removed, rebuilt and re-fitted. Thank to al who provided earlier responses - much appreciated. The engine loom was sent to Simon Lambert at Sileck who rebuilt the loom with much attention to detail evident. The cost was less that £400 including...

    Ah ...............the fog is lifting. I've been looking for factory fit aircon not realising that aftermarket W124 aircon was so common and hotrodder has prompted me to widen the my search. The 2nd picture within the post from robparker, that hotrodder has kindly provided a link to, is the very...

    W124 320CE Engine Loom replacement

    Thanks to all who have kindly offered advice which has been very valuable indeed. Seems I have been fortunate because on my car the knock sensors have leads permanently attached making their actual disconnections from the loom some distance away from the fixings on the block and hence quite easy...

    W124 320CE Engine Loom replacement

    It has been a dull and damp day here in darkest Wiltshire so I took the opportunity to make a start on extracting the engine loom. Good news is that removing the 'plastic and rubber gubbins' behind the firewall has indeed made enough room to get the loom out between the firewall and battery...

    W124 320CE Engine Loom replacement

    The original engine loom on my 1994 320CE needs changing. I've read that the job is relatively straightforward if done carefully and methodically and that the job can even be done in around a couple of hours. Having examined the existing loom in situ I have to say that it is very very snug...

    W124 - Engine Loom -124 440 5332

    On my car / loom the engine loom part number is printed on a small white label attached to the loom and very close to the battery, it's a little difficult to see even with the battery removed as it is roughly level with the battery tray and tucked in on the drivers side of where the battery...

    Hello from darkest Wiltshire

    Hello all, I've been a long time admirer of the W124 and finally decided the only way to verify that these really are very fine cars is to own one. I've taken the plunge and bought a 1994 320CE with 150k miles, almandine paint and 5 speed auto. I have to say I'm really enjoying driving the...
