    Rocker Cover Gasket + Valeo Rad

    My CLK W209 is a 2003 How can I check if my Vin is affected by the Valeo issue as I'd rather be same than sorry. I believe it's £300 for a new Behr radiator but how do I know peevish owners haven't changed it before? Any easy way to check? Come to think of it though even if it has the Valeo...

    Attempting to change the head gasket on a W202

    The engine in question is a 111.945 (2l) Here goes: Undertray removed. The grime may well be the result of the oil escaping past the head gasket. And we’re stuck. I can’t get the exhaust manifold bolts out. According to the Haynes manual it does have to come off because the manifold...

    C32 Head Gasket?

    Hi I have been seeing quite a loss of coolant in my car (2003 estate) and did some digging around yesterday. All I can find is that the expansion tank was damp underneath, so it may be leaking through the cap when under pressure. However, I put over a litre in and it still wasn't quite up to...

    560 sec head gasket failure?

    Gents, the 560 sec I've owned for all of 2 weeks has what I believe to be a failed or failing head gasket. Main symptoms are continuos white smoke with a slightly sweet smell to it from cold idle, even when left idling long enough to for temps to reach 60 deg c. Took it on an a-road blast...

    Head Gasket R&R follow up...

    It has been a little over a month since my head gasket change and I am pleased with the results. I had a coolant leak at the back of the head at the fire wall. The engine runs much more smooth, the coolant system holds pressure and quantity and pulls to red line as it should. After the first...

    W124 Head Gasket...

    So my '96 E220 coupe is finally demanding I spend a whole wedge of money on it... It has been drinking large quantities of coolant so I took it to a West London specialist and they've diagnosed the CHG. Head will need a skim and it turns out it also needs a new timing chain (it's stretched)...

    I'm no expert mechanically so seeking some further opinions. My M102 E200 has some cream in the coolant, you can just about see it on the top of the bottle itself. It has also consumed some oil, I should of checked how much as I topped it up today but it was certainly a noticeable amount on...

    Gearbox Pan Gasket Leaks - Check it!

    Probably been mentioned before but serious enough to say it again. The pan gasket on my E63 MCT gearbox failed 6,000 miles after a gearbox service & had it not been for the fact that it was in the air at EMP for exhaust work I would never of known as the drips when stationary were almost zero...

    Antennae gasket

    Trying to buy a replacement GPS Roof Mounted Antennae Gasket, just need the rubber Gasket which is a bit weather worn, the only one I can find is if you buy the Cap, Antennae and Gasket for about £ 30.00 I only need the Gasket replacing and this sounds damn expensive for a rubber Gasket. Any...
