MERCEDES BENZ CLASS E II 210 1996 E320 head gasket replacement

I have been searching for a DIY for a head gasket replacement and cannot seem to find one. If you know of a DIY can you please post a link. Thanks

If you cannot turn it by hand something is wrong attached is the procedure for setting the initial timing from Arthur Dalton. use an allen key to drop in the alignment hole. Remember the inlet cam turns backwards to the crank direction - its easy to get it off because you need to think backwards for that one. as CC said for the M104 you would be better in the W124 section most of us have the M112 or m113 engines good luck Barri

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS S IV 220 Valve cover gasket and breather cover sealant DIY

Oil seeps from my valve covers gaskets and breather chamber were on my coil packs and dripping onto my exhaust manifold. In reviewing how to replace valve cover gaskets and redo the breather cover seals to stop these multiple oil leaks on my 2002 S430 I thought how hard can this be After reviewing experience from others came to the realization that quite a bit can go wrong. For example. 1)Oil leak

similar info for all m113 V8 engines and M112 V6 engines used in various MB platforms. The only practical difference between these modular engines for this job is 2 fewer cylinders and differences in air inlet housings. As such there are some workshop instructions posted by 43sqd on the ML W163 forum (see post 2 of the link) and a pictorial exploded diagram (see post 9 of the link). httpwww.benzworld.orgforumsw163...-oil-leak.html

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS E II 210 Rebuilding a M113

I am trying to find some rotating assy specsclearances for pretty much any m113 V8. Trying to look at some numbers on what different car companies spec the bottom end with and what sort of oil requirements they have and why. Anyone see ANY specs on mainrod bearing clearances rod side clearances and piston to bore and ring clearances on a m113 V8 Prefer a E55 but doesnt have to be. Thanks

And then GM used a copper head gasket (which is fine) and an iron head and alum block. Add heat and electricity and you have electrolysis and voila the head gasket dissolves....

MERCEDES BENZ SL R230 Valve cover gaskets

The other day a friend of mine told me that his E500 needed a set of valve cover gaskets per the dealer. His vehicle is out of warranty so he decided to wait until he could afford it. Being curious I did a search on leaky valve cover gaskets on this and a few other forums and found that m113 engine is notorious for having leaky valve cover gaskets. I opened the hood on my wifes 05 SL500 and saw a small

MERCEDES BENZ CLS I 219 2006 CLS500 Valve Cover Gaskets.....

Bought my car over a year ago. Lately I have noticed an oil burn smell after a drive. I only drive my car about 7000 miles a year and not for long periods of time when I do. But recently I have noticed the oil burn smell and can only attribute it to valve cover gaskets. Need to drive this thing to Dallas TX from Charlotte NC later this month for work and then back. Are these gaskets hard to change

I would NEVER suggest getting the engine hot when changing plugs in an aluminum head. Aluminum and steel expand at different rates and you can literally turn the threads right out of the head which really makes it a long day. Start cold start slow. If they will not break free with normal pressure (which really is unlikely unless they have been changed previously by an ape) then try tightening them

MERCEDES BENZ 124 124 3.2 engine versus

I have decided that the S class simply will not fir into my garage without a lot of moving around of workbenches and things and even then it would be tight. SO I have decided to focus on the 300E and 300CE for purchase. Since I am new to the mercedes make to begin with I do not know if there are reliability concerns between the 4 engines that are available to me. A 1993 is probably the newest I can

final decision came the 104 won hands down. Extremely smooth and certainly powerful. We just returned from a trip to Atlanta with the 2.8 and it ran like a top the entire way there and back. Right now its at 64000 miles and no trouble to report. I know I posted a long posting about the difference between the M103 and M104 engines earlier in this thread but I found another discussion from the mercedes

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS C I 202 Looking for info on the C230s and C280s

Newbie here. I am looking to get a 1995-1999 C280 or C230. I would like to know what is the difference between these models. I figure that its the motor size. Is there other models with the same body style In your opinion which model is better I want a black one with black leather. Thank you very much Josh

Ill agree with you on that. Newer is better because of lower mileage. I will also acknowledge that the early M104 engines were prone to leak oil externally at the right rear corner of the head gasket. But this engine was in continuous use until 1999 in the W140 chassis S320 and the head gaskets were eventually fixed. The new design has steel inserts in the head gasekts which prevent leaking. A 1994-1995

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS E II 210 E420 Vs. E430 differences please.

Hi I am just curious about how does the E420 drive compared to the E430 Does anyone havedriven both What are the performance differences Is E420 slower off the line

The m113 could be considered less expensive to maintain. Just parts to do a head gasket job (not counting any machining or labor) are around 500 for the m113 vs 1500ish for the M119. Thats going all out and changing the timing chain & guides etc. The M119 also has those pesky cam oiler tubes. I do like the idea of having dual overhead cams vs single but dual spark plugs makes up for it not to mention

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS E II 210 Premium fuel

I have a 124 that I have run for 270000 miles on regular fuel (87-89) despite the recommendation for 91. This car has reached the end of the line...needs heater core head gasket main seal and a few other items (interior paint). So I have decided to look into the 210 line...upgrade myself and family. Can I even think of running a 210 on REGULAR fuel What are the downsides Just a question...no flames please. I will go with the recommended 91 but curious if anyone has gone the way of regular.

Can I even think of running a 210 on REGULAR fuel What are the downsides Just a question...no flames please. I will go with the recommended 91 but curious if anyone has gone the way of regular. Alan - Greg has outlined it pretty well but in a nutshell the engine on the 124 (M103 inline 6 for the 300E) and the M112m113 engines are leagues apart in terms of technology. So...no you should not ever run a W210 on regular gas. German car manufacturers are taxed on engine displacement so these engines have been highly optimized. Instead of using pure displacement to generate HP they use technology to achieve power low emissions and decent mileage. Every piece of the chain has been tweaked and optimized - from the oil filter to the exhaust. This is why there arent any easy ways to tweak a W210 for more performance (which is another popular question on these forums that usually generates a tired sigh from regulars. ). A very crucial part of this chain is the gasoline. Higher octane gas requires more energy for ignition and this has been factored in to the equation in terms of cylinder pressure heat etc. If you use lower than the 91 octane recommended you are weakening this equation. Under load lower octane gas could pre-ignite due to heat andor cylinder compression and your engine could (and will) experience knocking. Not only are you losing power from each cylinder stroke when this happens it puts wear on the entire system. So for the few dollars you might be saving in fuel you will be wearing out a very expensive engine system early. Another reason not yet mentioned is that higher octane gasoline blends will contain more detergents. These are absolutely necessary in modern precision engines where you have very sensitive components like the fuel injectors and other throttle body parts. The added detergents help to keep these parts clean and functioning properly. Carbon build-up on injectors or plugs will degrade performance significantly. Ive always run my mercedes on Sunoco Ultra 94 octane gas.

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS E III 211 please help low coolant and add oil light came on water in oil

I was driving home tonight with my wifes 2004 e320 4matic and add 1 qt of oil at next fill up warning message came on display common to happen when close to oil change with this car and then about 20 miles later another message light came on it said check coolant level and i was about 5 miles from home so when i arrived home i checked the coolant level in the resivoir and it was low so i added coolant

Unless you do lots of freeway driving the milky film on the oil cap is typical. How low on coolant were you Coolant can leak into the windshield washer bottle. More common is the seep past the seal on the water pump. At the least Id say a good under-hood inspection is in order. But the M112 and m113 are reliable engines not known for blown head gaskets etc. Please click user cp and edit details to

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS E II 210 W210 model comparison

Ive got the 96 E320 and like it alot. I was going to put some money into it. It was my brothers and he got it new. He had everything done to it and it is at 107000 miles at this time. I got it at 99000. How does the this car compare with the V-6 320 420 430 and even the 500 in terms of HP torque 0-60 and MPG (city and highway) Any info is greatly appreciated and your opinons are welcomed. TIA tsp

The inline 6s in the W210 were great engines (appart from the head gasket problem). They were more sporty than the M112 engine (in my opinion) but the main reason for the change to M112 was that it could share alot of parts with the new m113 engine and pass certain emissions tests which possible the old inline (M104 I think) would have to be further refined to pass. In terms of power the V & inline

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS E II 210 M112 question

Hello everybody. I have a E320 m112.941 engine. The car was smoking (blue smoke) and replacement of valve stem seals was needed.

Now the question. But now I note that there is a blow from a hole that is near the

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS E II 210 Are the W210s reliable

Hi there everyone I was pondering the possibilities of the new car in the family when I realized I had never given the W210 a fair go. I always dismissed it as a car full of electronic gremlins and a not quite as safe body structure (thanks to a youtube video I accidentally saw) But then I re-evaluated my decision after seeing a delicious looking E55 that may be for sale. I also have seen quite a few

Reliable is a moving target. As compared with what The 124 All other things being equal Id say yes. The 124s three biggest problems in terms of reliability are the head gasket on the M104 the engine harness and the K40 relay. The latter is pretty inexpensive and easy to take care of the other two are not and the head gasket can lead to worse issues. Thus far none of those issues have surfaced in the

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS E II 210 Timing Chain or Timing Belt

Hey all this is my first post Does my 1999 E430 Sport have a timing chain or timing belt Thanks in advance

M104 motors you inspect the chain for stretch when you replace the leaking head gasket or timing chain cover which will usually precede the head gasket failure so you might as well do it at the same time .the m104 only has a single chain prone to stretching. His m113 engine if properly maintained the double roller chains and silent rubber-coated sprockets will last into long life.Same with the M112 ohlord

MERCEDES BENZ CL CL 500 Engine

Hello guys. I have a big big problem with my 2006 mercedes CL500 engine. It started to make a strange exhaust noise actually it was more like a Brabus or similar sport exhaust. The engine was starting and stopping normally every time except the sound and the big vibrations. When I drove to the local official dealer service we decided to do a full engine diagnosis. They removed the right cylinder head

This is engine M273 right Probably not as bullet-proof as the earlier m113 V8 but Ive not read about any failures of this type on this site. Its surprising that the mechanics tore your engine apart before doing a compression test or other means of checking for a head gasket failure - in spite of their diagnostic checks. I wonder what codes were produced Most engine codes are associated with sensor

In my opinion both the bottom and top ends of the M119 are quite bulletproof. In fact I believe the M119 to be the best-engineered MB V-8 to date and that includes the more recent m113 engines. The m113s were engineered and produced with a different philosophy than the M119. And yes the M119 is a HUGE improvement on the M117. The main problem with the M119 is the timing chain which should be replaced

MERCEDES BENZ CLK II 209 PCV Plate on 2005 CLK320

We have a 2005 CLK320 2 Door Coupe with about 40000 miles on it (its actually my wifes car and she drives it most of the time). I just recently had it serviced for an oil change and changing the brake fluid. During their inspection they indicated the following PCV Plate Reseal Needed PCV Plate is plugged up and leaking oil Their charge for servicing it is 175. Is it possible that I could do this myself

OK - I see that. Well on both sides the large part is called the leftright cylinder head cover and has a gasket to the cylinder head. Bolts are tightened to only 8 Nm. That shiny section is not shown as a separate part on the WIS drawing so Im a bit confused here. Crankcase ventilation is handled by a hose attached to the left cylinder head cover only on the M112 engine. (Im not sure about your m113 V8 engine)

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS C I 202 to buy....c36 or c43

Hey guys...thinking of buying a c36 or c43...please give me some recs...i will be modifying either car...

The 5-speed electronic transmissions in the C43 do fail and are expensive but in my experience they fail at a lower rate than the 4-speed hydraulic controlled transmissions. Especially if you do maintenance on your transmission. Ive not heard of wiring harness issues on the C43 (or similar cars such as CLK430 or CLK55). I have heard of plenty on the C36 even when newer. The head gaskets do tend to

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS E II 210 What oil is everyone using for their E320 4Matic

Ive always used fully synthetic oil in my cars. The mechanic that I bought my car from recommended Pentosin 1025AMZ9434 High Performance 5W-40 Fully Synthetic Motor Oil He said its a great german brand that hes been using for years. Ive always been a big fan of pentosin (power steering fluid etc) So what do you say 5w40 fully synthetic or 10w40 fully synthetic Mobil 1 or Pentosin Show me what you use

oil changes on a m104 is enough said about the way you abuse an engine.Have you ever serviced it properlyAnd while I have seen dozens of leaking 95 and 96 m104s with timing and head gasket failuresI have yet to see one on a 112 or 113.Count yourself lucky.Or maybe you are one of the lucky buyers that happened to buy a second hand m104 that already had the gasket replaced and all you need to do is once

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS E II 210 Spark plugs replacement..questions

Hi all I replaced the spark plugs on my car this weekend. The old plugs were Beru Platin are these the factory plugs As far as I know Bosch plugs are factory. Also I noticed that using a spark plug socket with a built-in swivel extension makes the job much easier. I could not remove wires on the rear most plus because I did not have the offset wrench any ideas how to do it If not I will source the 17mm offset wrench. Thanks.

MERCEDES BENZ CLASS E III 211 How common is a crankshaft rear oil seal leak

I had the car to the dealer a month ago for a check-up and one thing they noted is that the rear oil seal is leaking. This is based on oil seeping out from the bottom of the transmission bell-housing. Repair cost 1400. I then went to an indy mercedes shop and they told me its very rare for this seal to start leaking. Its more common to have an oil leak at the rear end of the intake manifold they said

Are these plugs part of the valve cover or head I have a pretty bad leak somewhere back there.. I just ordered up valve cover gaskets but it sure seems like a lot of oil for that.. Im now thinking I need to check and replace these as well.. are they the same part number for the m113 engine Bill
