    W210 2.8 petrol M104.942 sudden stop and starting problem

    So, W210. Petrol 2.8 6 in-line (M104.942) became difficult to start the other day, normally not a problem starting. Ignition on (normal), crank (normal), engine fires very briefly and abruptly stops. Continued attempts initially achieved a slightly longer engine run (maybe 1/2 sec) and again...

    E280 Engine Judder

    Hi, My 1995 E280 S124 started juddering from the engine ( I think) at the end of a short journey last week. I have just tried to drive it again.

    W124 E280 4-Spd Auto Est (‘95)

    Not posted for a while, since I’ve had around 25-30k trouble-free miles (apart from self-inflicted odometer jam last Summer, which was an easy fix). Nearing 180k now. BUT... A few weeks ago I had my local garage fit a new cat, an after-market one (recommended). Since then I’ve had both cold...

    W124 E280 4 Spd Auto (Est), Cruise Control

    Mornin' all, Cruise control on my car has been U/S, since I got it back in October. It is next on my list to restore to working order. I will then only have 3 main issues, apart from a list of largely cosmetic cabin and trim parts, which I'll do gradually, (1) o/s heating & A/C issues (prob...

    300ce-24 m104 engine misfiring

    I have a misfiring problem in my 300ce-24. I have narrowed it down to cyl 4 only. I have replaced the distributor and spark leads but to no help. If I leave the car undriven for a few days and start it up, the misfiring is really bad.... I can step on the accelerator and the car is bogged...
