Dear Adekunle,
In addition to the advice given.... note this: UNLESS YOU HAVE A VERY LOYAL LONG SUFFERING MECHANIC ...A SUFFER HEAD ... DO NOT BUY AN A CLASS!

A hungry mechanic will even dodge you the minute you step into his workshop or claim that he is very busy... that car and the mechanic knuckles are enemies.....

Kind regards

Hello everyone, thanks for the wonderful job you're doing here. Please I received my ML350 2012 today from port but to my surprise the control adaptor socket underneath the driver's seat has been stolen ( Lagos port rats), this is the socket that powers the seat adjust control knob. I have attached pictures for more clarification, i really need contact of where to buy it around Lagos/Ibadan. Thanks

My car's slow running/idle mode is fluctuating despite servicing the nozzle. Mechanic said it's the actuator. Anyone knows how much it costs and how I can get it?

It's a C180 2002 model.

Thanks

Have you cleaned the butterfly flap of the actuator?


And are you sure you don't have any vacuum leak?

Thanks for this Smartchioice.

I recall you once helped out while I had a breakdown while traveling. Really appreciate your help.

I’ll ask the mechanic to check the actuator flap but I don’t understand the vacuum leak. Can you explain a bit more?

Thanks

Pls house, I just acquired 2004 Benz E320. ABS light is permanently on(orange colour) with ABS and ESP malfunction display on the screen. I scanned d car it came up with: check component L6/2 (right front wheel speed sensor). The problem is dat I couldn't get d exact type of sensor dat came with it. All the 1s I saw in d market is a bit thinner than d 1 dat came with d car and I av tried like 3 different types they didn't work. Is there anybody in d forum that can connect me to where I can get d exact type? Although d car is driving fine, what is d implication of driving it with ABS light on?

your car is not brand new from manufacturing plant, what u need for servicing is 5w40 or 10w40....they are cheaper and will make ur engine last long.
always remember that d W after the number stands for winter and only useful during extreme cold starts.
The lower the W value the easier it is for the oil to flow at low temperatures. Considering our climate and age of engine the W value should be higher than 0.

check the wire that goes into the speed sensor if its broken or shorted anywhere... if you have a disconnected or shorted connection to that particular sensor no sensor will ever work there.

There are places in Mexico and the United States hotter than the hottest parts of Nigeria.... Although he can also use the 5W 40 or the 10W 40...

Age of vehicle engine irrelevant. I expected you to have considered the engine oil he's been using.

The truth is that when they grade oil they will always consider winter climates 1st before tropical climate like ours.
Cars that are here have no business with 0wxx graded oils. you will never need to crank ur engine in freezing temperatures here.

Age of engine have alot to do with grade of oil to be used for servicing... unless u have a way to eliminate wear n tear that occurs during friction which is impossible. As rugged as Benz engines are they also will succumb to frictionally forces with time.
