The problem I have is when I go on motorway drives, after about 30 mins it goes into a limp mode, but no engine lights come up, i feel as though it has cut the turbo out as the mpg and the boost decreases, i can still...

    W123 2.8 swap to 2.0

    Hey there! I currently drive a w124 200D auto (first car) which I’ve had for a year, I do thoroughly enjoy the car, but can’t help lusting over a dream w123 car I have wanted since I was a child. My issue is this - where I am located, it is near impossible to find any w123’s under 2.5 and 2.8...

About 3 months ago the engine light came on but I kept driving the car until one day I noticed a loss of power, I restarted the car and the problem went away but I felt we should get it checked out so I took it to...

    Hi yesterday i noticed that the step-down power increase was not working & also used the paddle change option to drop a gear without the usual increase or turbo kick as i'm used to & expect. The car accelerates smoothly still & there are no warning lights on the dashboard. I tried the auto...

    Hi All, This is my first post, so not sure where to post it. I have a 2006 W203 CDI. Yesterday I noticed that when I come to a stop the engine seems to be vibrating much harder than usual, causing a buzzing/rattling sound inside the car. It sounds much like the engine is shaking and rubbing...

    V280 Ambient won't select drive.

    Hello Folks. I'm in Belfast with my automatic ambient that I can't improve on. It's a can during the week and a Granda car at weekends. The story. It stuck in 3rd gear. I replaced the valve body and refilled with oil. Now it won't select drive. It will move through the gears to 3rd smoothly...

    E220 CDI 220k FMBSH 2014

    Considering going to look at this car, it is very reasonably priced, interior looks in excellent condition. Would it be crazy to buy this car with such mileage? I do around 12k per year. Daily trip to work is around 15miles each way, 20 min mostly dual carriageway. How much more mileage can I...
