    W211 MY2005 7 speed auto. I have an occasional issue that now appears to getting more regular I feel it's gearbox related but could be wrong.

    C63 rough gear change

    Hi all, I've done a search on here and only found something relating to a CLK with a 7G-tronic box. I wondered if anyone else had experienced similar in a C63 (W204/2011) My car is exhibiting a very rough shift from 4th down to 3rd. When I say rough I mean it bangs in with a very...

    ML 270 Rough running

    Hi, quick question from new owner. I have an ML270 2002 CDI and it runs great when cold. When warmed up it will run to 2000rpm then sounds like the timing is off (as if it was a petrol model) and huge clouds of black smoke. A bit gutless until it gets up a bit of speed, say 70mph and then it's...

    Rough running when cold

    Help please. My E320 cdi sport 06 runs bad when cold. It sounds like a misfire when under load/ pulling away. As soon as it reaches temp it is as smooth as it should be. There are no errors from the ecu at all. My indie mechanic has tested each injector for electrical supply when cold and warm...

    W210 E230 rough idle, almost stalling in drive but fine in park or neutral.

    Any help will be appreciated if someone can guide me in the right direction. Mileage is 173000 km. Transmission also makes a whining sound. Not sure if that is a separate issue though. Sent from my GT-N7100 using Tapatalk

    Rough road handling! Life span on struts and springs?

    Hi all, I'm wondering what the effective lifespan is of factory fitted struts and springs? My R129 is really starting to rattle and bounce alarmingly when driving over rougher country roads. I know that the staggered 18 inch wheels don't help and I'm having some suspension components checked...
