    Can anyone help explain why my Viano service counter interval could jump from due in around 12000km to being 68km overdue. The van has been running fine but today was really sluggish to turn over and I thought the battery was drained. After turning off everything (audio system etc), it fired up...

    Cold start sudden high rpm (jumped up to 2200)

    Hey guys, I started my c230k this morning and the rpms shot up to 2200 for about 1 second, and then back to 1200 to warm up and the back to normal idle. Initial start up was louder than usual but there was no shaking, idle hunting or misfire. It wasn't even that cold, only 15 degrees...

    Auto jumped out of gear

    I've had my W203 for a week now (my first MB - Auto, 2002 60,000 miles FMBSH). I've probably done about 800 happy miles so far but today I had a worrying experience. I was driving though a bend at about 30mph in D and when I applied the accelerator through the bend, the engine raced and drive...
