    My son just bought an old W124 (230e) saloon with several faults, and I am trying to help him to get this car back on the road (I have had several W210's, a couple of W126's and currently I am the proud (?) owner of a W163, but I never touched a W124 before now...) First of all, there was the...

    W124 E200 M102 - Head Gasket?

    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...

    [Question] differences m102 2.3 8v and 2.3-16

    Hi. I had to abandon the idea of making the 190 with m104 3.2, because I couldn't find a decent base 190 2.6 to do so, so now my question is about the internals of m102 2.3 8v and 2.3-16. I know the 16v engine has the head built by cosworth, but what about the rest of the internal components...

    M102 intermittent cut out problem

    The engine can cut-out (usually at a junction), when switched off and back on again is fine! Last time it did there was a fairly loud humming noise from the fuel pump. This might just be because it was re-priming after the cut out though? This is very intermittent, most drives it does not...

    Hi I'm about to remove the rocker cover on my M102 W124 coupe, in order to get it powder coated along with the air box lid. Is this fairly straightforward? I've located the 4 stud bolts are these the only thing that are required to remove it (I would have tried removing it but it was too hot...

    Poor/low idle M102 when re-starting after hot?

    On my C124 with the 2.3L M102 it's had an annoying tendency after a decent length run (so that the engine's warm) and then switched off to idle too low/stall when switched back on again. This quickly resolves once you've got it up and running again. It's done it for a long time and so isn't...

    M102 230CE bad engine noise/rattle

    I have a problem with a 2.3 M102 engine in a C124 230CE. It has developed a horrible rattling noise at low revs. For all the world at start up you'd think it was just an exhaust heatshield clattering away. However, this very quickly disappears and changes to the noise I hope you might be able to...
