    W107 - Idling Badly

    Hi there! I own a 1972 350SL (W107) which used to run beautifully, however I managed to overheat her due to a fluid leak. Luckily, the engine didn't seize and after a few months at the mechanic she was running smoothly again. Except for one thing: once the engine gets warm it idles very...

    300SE idling badly

    I last posted on the 5th of this month concerning my W126. I had to keep the engine revved until it reached near to its operating temperature, then it would stabilise and allow me to move away. I replaced both the dizzy cap and rotor arm (with genuine bosch parts) as per the advice from Mazza...

    How Badly Was Quality And Durability Affected When Chrysler Took Over?

    I´ve got a 2005 E320 Avantgarde, and I´m just wondering if all components quality was reduced when Chrysler took over? I mean the reason for rust in post 2004 models was the takeover, but does that apply to every component? You hear stories of the older Mercs going on forever and ever, but...

    C230K stutters badly when pushed

    My new toy, c230 sport estate Komp, has a bad habit of stuttering badly when the gas pedal is pressed firmly. I don't just mean the carpet denting foot slammed to the floor type firmly either. When driven gently and with gradually increasing pedal pressure its fine and responsive, but very...

    w202 running badly

    I've got a problem with my c200. Following changing the Air Mass Meter (twice - yuk), the car is not running smoothly. It's behaving like the fuel is contaminated but I don't think it's that. After I changed the first Air Mass Meter the car was fine for about 3 weeks & then got worse. With the...
