    CLK350 Oil Leak

    Thanks guys, Changed the coolant recently. What came out was really clean and clear plus the temperature is always stable. Is the PCV easy to check? Have pulled them and rattled / checked for vacuum on other cars but can’t find anything going into the crankcase? Is it worth just changing the...

    CLK350 Oil Leak

    Thanks for the comments guys, it’s definitely what’s leaking the oil as it’s the highest point at the top of the oil stains. Have removed and re-sealed again today so hopefully will see the problem solved. Started the car and revved it a bit too, dipstick stayed where it was. Went for a drive...

    Has anybody experienced this problem? Which sealant would be best for a plastic/metal contact to contain oil?

    CLK350 Oil Leak

    Hi everyone, it’s been a while since i’ve posted but hoping someone can help. I’ve got an oil leak on the top of my engine. Thing the part is called the oil evaporator? It’s the black plastic piece bottom left of the picture. I’ve had it off and re-sealed it a number of times but can’t stop...

    Benz on The Green 2017

    Hi all, sorry - very rarely use the forum these days so missed the bit about an email going out to those that are 'registered' earlier in the month - and that registration was for 'showing' the car rather than just attending. Definitely still coming along and wondered if anyone can PM me the...

    CLK350 Intake Manifold Repair Kit 2721402401

    Just noticed I said I'd report back about fuel savings. The on-board calculator is showing a 1mpg improvement on average since pre-repair, same journey profile which is strange if it's not actually fixed! unless it was stuck one way and is now stuck the other?

    CLK350 Intake Manifold Repair Kit 2721402401

    bugger. Light's back on with P2006 and P0410 codes. the new part is moving freely so I can only assume that the old one having been stuck for so long damaged some of the vacuum components parts. Anyone have any experience with testing this system / unit? can you check the three pumps at the top...

    CLK350 Intake Manifold Repair Kit 2721402401

    I gave it a good clean (although it wasn't very dirty) but didn't polish. Felt like the tumble flaps will likely create a bigger flow issue than any fine detailing would improve. Putting the manifold back into the car was straightforward and it took about 2hrs, however it was dark and i...

    CLK350 Intake Manifold Repair Kit 2721402401

    So, the part was available in the UK, X8R had incorrectly listed it as £1699.99 on their website and eBay account, however once correctly priced at £69.99 it became competitive with US and Chinese incl. postage. The benefit of this 'kit' is that it comes with a replacement main arm, which it...

    Sorry 4life211, not sure what you mean mate. I took the manifold out today. Like most DIY jobs it'd be easy on a new car, but lots of brittle parts made today only a partial success. Explanation below if anyone can help? Pictures to follow as soon as i work out how to post them. The good...

    Check engine light + unplugged tube

    I've done this before when putting the airbox back on in a hurry. Also happens if you dont push the back of the airbox onto the MAF fully. P Push it back on and the CEL should reset in a few journeys. if not a cheap OBDII reader to clear the code but i'm sure mine cleared on its own.

    CLK350 Intake Manifold Repair Kit 2721402401

    Not sure, next time I'm at Olly's I'll ask if there's a way to diagnose gear wear without going half-way towards fixing it. The mileage is high enough on mine that I'm hoping it's already been done! I had the V8 for a while but the fuel (and tyre) consumption was silly and I need something...

    I'll crack on with the order then! Chinese NY means most of the online sellers aren't posting for a while but should get round to the repair in a couple of weeks so will report back. i just looked through the gap at the part, it's tight and there's no access at all but can just make out the...

    CLK350 Intake Manifold Repair Kit 2721402401

    Afternoon all, seems like my car has a common issue for M272 / M273 engines (lots on the web about it) but I couldn't find anything in the forum archives here. I've got the check engine light on my CLK350, 55 plate and the OBDII reader shows P2006. It used to come back every 200 miles or so...

    Selling a left hand drive car?

    Thanks guys :) it does look good with the hard-top fitted... which could probably stay on until it leaves for sunnier climes judging by the weather now too!

    Selling a left hand drive car?

    Bidding went to £3007.00 in the last auction (wish i'd set the reserve at £3k now!) and is at £2500 with a week to go on the new auction. It's a bloody nice example, hence the price!
