    W203 CDI Thermostat Replacement DIY?

    Hi guys, I got a replacement thermostat a few days ago. I was going to have my mechanic install it this weekend, but he's not available. From researching a bit, I understand this is a relatively short and easy job. Perhaps it will be suitable to serve as my very first DIY? I wasn't...

    W211 320 CDI Thermostat

    So I'm sure this is not a new topic. Been wondering why fuel economy was poor, and performance erratic, and suddenly twigged as I noticed that the water temp gauge was usually indicating around 60 max, when I guess it should be showing 90 degrees. So just a couple of questions, really for...

    R129 SL500- It never rains but it pours -Transmission, Injection, Thermostat...

    Well, I fitted the new ignition leads to my 1994 R129 SL500 today. It now has new engine wiring harness, distributor caps & rotors, ignition leads, and plugs. The regular misfire is gone - Hurrah! HOWEVER... It still runs roughly, and misses, splutters and holds back under throttle - quite...

    The Mystery Of The Thermostat And The Fuel Consumption

    I replaced the thermostat on my w208 CLK320 the other day, simple job and all was well, heater nice and toasty. I was feeling a little smug and pleased with my handiwork, basking in the warm air wafting from my vents. Today I had to drive to Heathrow, mid afternoon, plenty of time, so...

    Thermostat question

    C180 SE coupe. Just after a 30 mile run and the engine temp was showing a constant 40 degrees. Is this a thermostat issue ? And will this have an effect on the heating and air con in the car as this is performing poorly. Thanks

    I was going to take a look at swapping out my thermostat because I can do 25 miles and the heater never gets hot and the display never goes above 40. Has anyone seen a fault like this? Is it normal for CLK 2006 200K to be so slow to get hot? When I change it, is there anything to look out...

    W163 ML270 thermostat question (sorry)

    from looking at posts here and elsewhere i know this has come up many many times - my temp gauge sits just above 60 at all times but the economy is no worse than i would expect for a big heavy 4x4 and the heater comes on pretty quickly - certainly within a time i would say is normal Based on...
