I seem to be losing/burning water from the cooling system.
I can’t find a leak & had supposed the head gasket might be at fault (101000 mls) tho’ she runs as sweet as a nut.
Oil (full synthetic) is o.k.
Plugs are o.k (changed them yesterday to...
As I work through the possible causes for non starting the most obvious one now is a compression test (see http://www.mercedesshop.com/shopforum/showthread.php?p=2127805#post2127805)
Does anyone have any advice on which brand? these SilverlIine ones look ok with plenty of adaptors...
Well my Brabus 3.6 has eaten its way through yet another headgasket :(, thankfully I have an MLS gasket that PUMPISH (guy the mercedesshop forum who's putting out 600bhp from m103s!) made for me. I've been losing oil in this car at the same rate (~1L/300mi) I had done before the rebuild last...
I just did a compression test in my continuing efforts to fix the slow starting on my 300TE-24, here's what I got;
1/ 110 PSI
These seem very low to me, I'm not totally convinced of the accuracy of the tester I used but I hoped it would give me a rough...
I have a 560 SEC with 102k on the clock.
I had the head rebuilt on it 6-12 months ago, 500 miles ago precisely due to a few running issues.
Well i've developed a misfire in the car (yet again!!) so decided to have the compression checked on it. The reading as as follows, from the front of...
Hi ive just bought a c36 amg with the engine out of the car. the compression is down on one cylinder. what could the possible problems be???? would i need to rebore the cylinder????
Is it possible to put a c230 kompressor engine into the c36??
I think the c36 is a c280 engine which is bored...
My favourite subject:rolleyes: M271 engines are all the same but the "1.8" has a compression ratio of 10.2:1, the "2.0" has a compression ration of 9.5:1 and the "2.3" has a ratio of 8.7:1.
If they all have a capacity of 1796cc and all have a bore of 82mm and a stroke of 85mm then how is the...
I am looking at Neil's 190e 2.5-16 at present which is for sale and when reviewing the documentation I spotted some results of a cylinder leakage test or perhaps a compression test.
Results were quoted as 14%, 14%, 14% and 22%.
Does anyone know if this is good, bad or otherwise?
