    Overfilled ATF fluid on 722.6 transmission - is it a problem?

    Hello, I (more or less) followed these wonderful directions about how to change the ATF fluid on my 1997 E420. I bought 9 quarts of ATF fluid, and while the oil was draining out of the left cooler pipe (after removing the banjo bolt) I was adding oil to the tranny pan so that oil would come of...

    E420 cdi

    I have the chance to get a nice late model, low miles E420cdi with some decent options - I wonder if there were any big problems with this car? I've rarely seen them around, even over here in France, and although the V8 MLs seem more common, they seem inherently more unreliable perhaps...

    E420 cat trouble

    E420 estate '96 - one cat has broken ceramics - my mechanic has removed the bits - I am told it costs a fortune to replace. Any ideas? Will it fail the next MOT with one CAT only in place? Will it do any harm running like this?

    Have just acquired an E420 estate, LHD and German origin so 4.2 v8 engine. I have just driven it from Uk to Romania and an absolute delight to speed past the odd big Audi!
