No not really, only the dealership.. Prefer to save moneyGIven the codes its throwing it sounds like it might need replacing. I'm not sure about the seals etc as never done one.
hopefully somebody on here with more knowledge might be able to help?
Are there any good merc sepcialists near you?
The crankshaft (40) sensor is on the same side as the throttle valve, it bolts in pointing towards the flywheel. The camshaft sensor (11) is on top of the cam cover to the left.Amazing. All the faults you listed are on mine. I did bite the bullet and cleaned out the throttle body, metal egr connecting pipe an plastic to the inlet of the engine. It was completely gunked. Quite straightforward but the sixth screw under the metal agr cooler is a pig and get yourself a telescopic magnet as you will undoubtedly drop bolts. Have to be a decent socket set with plenty of extensions!!
Cleared all the faults at a local dealer.
Not a bit of difference. Still goes ionto limp now and again with light on and off: main problem being crankshaft position sensor now. I don't even know where this is and nothing on the net to show me.
Everything leads to stretched timing chain so be wary as this is scarily expensive to fix and common on these engines!!!
I am gonna try a new throttle body and camshaft sensor meantime. Will let you know how I get on and if it solves the problem.
Many thanks for that. There's not much online to show you on the OM651.The crankshaft (40) sensor is on the same side as the throttle valve, it bolts in pointing towards the flywheel. The camshaft sensor (11) is on top of the cam cover to the left.
