    Is 250k KM worrying amount on a MB 410d 1995 van?

    Seen a van I am after - it has 250k km on the clock (not miles). I heard some of these engines are indestructable. Is 250k a lot???? Or should I not worry?

    Worrying drop in fuel prices.

    It's a funny old world, the price of oil is falling falling, we should be happy...but we are doomed. Anybody else worried about this, or am I alone?

    Worrying vibration W203

    On Saturday I was driving through town when I noticed a sudden vibration as I turned at a junction - it felt very much like I was driving over rumble strips. As I accelerated, it stopped, but then appeared again as I let off the accelerator and coasted to a junction. It vibrated while I sat...

    Worrying engine noise - video link

    Hi All, For the last few days I've noticed this worrying noise on my W202. Here's a YouTube link. A couple of weeks ago the engine oil level light intermittently came on and off. The onboard digital level meter said to add 1.5L. I drove the car about 80 miles before getting to add the...

    Am I worrying over something simple?

    Ok, so this weekend I bought my daughter a new car. It is a 2007 Ford Fiesta ST. On the return trip, it was very quick, however... I noticed that when driving along a main A road before the engine warmed up, the engine never did warm up. The temperature gauge sat halfway below where it...

    Hearing worrying things on the 250 diesel engine

    Was thinking of buying a E250, but having spoken to somebody who works at MB dealership, I'm not so sure now. He had some very damning things to say of them and advised me to stay clear. 1) Sump is plastic and he's had to replace a number of sumps on customers cars where other garages have...

    A Worrying Vodafone Tale

    First and foremost, let me say that I quite like the service vodafone provides- and most of the time they are pretty good. Over the weekend, I misplaced one of my phones and given that it's a number I use for work, I cannot warrant not having the phone for more than a day or so. So today I...

    Hi, My W210 E320 cdi Avantgarde Estate recently blew out a rear tyre. I had swapped the front's to the rears 6 months ago and the rear tyre blew out on the inside edge where it had worn down to the canvas. As I normally do i bought a pair of new tyres for the rear. When I removed the other tyre...

    Worrying vibration when driving

    Just bought a 2001 C320 petrol and have noticed a slight vibration when driving when i am applying power or cruising. Vibration goes away if i come off the gas. Done a bit of research on here and i guess its the dreaded Valeo radiator issue. I have not noticed any jerky gear changes from...

    Hi Guys, I replaced the gearbox back in March on my C180 1997 (P) but the replacement (used) gearbox also suffers from the same symptoms going up hills, stressing the engine to about 3-4k revs and only reaching 20-25mph! Not really bothers me on the whole as it drives okay other but as I live...

    Rather worrying

    I've just seen this piece on The Register. It's basically saying that an imported jammer can defeat GPS based anti theft tracking systems.

    Worrying noises from rear suspension

    We've just returned from a week in Helmsley exploring the North Yorks Moors. Over the bumpy lanes I could feel and hear occasional dull and heavy sounding clunks/thumps from towards the rear. I suppose it might be some or all of the suspension bushes requiring replacement - they are all...

    Rather worrying new noises

    Driving home last night I thought the car sounded a bit rough. Nearing home the noise seemed to get worse. A sort of nasty mechanical resonance at medium to high revs and on the overrun. I havn't had the chance to have a proper poke around the car and I whilst I suppose the noises could be...

    Worrying Trend

    I'm sure it's not my imagination but there seems to be a worrying amount of drivers using lane 3 on 3 lane motorways while towing some kind of trailer. This morning on the M1 a young(ish) looking lad towing a bike trailer with bike pulled out into lane 3 as I was about to overtake him...

    Following the aquisition of my new AMG wheels, i have had a few occurances recently where the back wheels have lost grip etc. The alloys came already with tyres (if some of you remember me asking about them). I just had the plain 16" wheels with Avons ZZR on previously, and the grip was fine. I...

    S320CDi Airmatic - I may be worrying unnecessarily but ......

    on my S320CDi (2000 model with 100k miles), the airmatic compressor had to be replaced recently (as it had started making really terrible noises) and when I got the car back (minus £600 out of my wallet), I have since noticed the compressor seems to come on more often than I'd expect or maybe...
