After driving both a 211 with 722.6 and now the 212 with 722.9 Im on the fence, the 722.6 was silky smooth always in the right gear, the 722.9 is better on fuel, keeps me in the power band better but isn't nearly as smooth, also I can catch it out on gear changes but I use the paddles now so don't notice it do much
Hi all haven’t been on the forum for a while, log on , into the tech section and click on drivetrain etc. It’s like the forum knows what I need !!!! Ml 350 53 plate, ets abs lights on !! Guess what I prob need to do soon !! Conductor plate ! Probably !!!
I also have check engine illuminated, crank position sensor the suspect here, simple obd handheld used. My motor engineer tells me that the car, MIGHT, flag the ets light as an override to stop the cruise etc being used. Almost like it knows there is a problem and won’t allow the engine to create more problems. Now I am pretty old skool, electricity was meant to combat the smell of gas lights, that’s all, I am sceptical but is it possible? Car is due mot in couple of months, apart from no cruise available it runs fine , but lights do need dealt with . Budgeted for replacing sensor and plate anyway, might check out the £150 mb plate !!!! What kind of atf can I use, does it need to be Mercedes?
Cheers , scott
Am not too afraid, got a 4 post ramp and my friends independent garage to play with when required!! Lots you tube vids to be watched!!!Shame i never saw the thread earlier as I was up in Scotland Tuesday till last night and had Star with me.
Speed sensor A is definitely conductor plate I'm afraid.
