My C300 4matic 2013 Benz steering is hard to steer, I just park the car and within 20mins when I was going out I start the the car but the steering is just too stiff and hard to turn. I scanned the car and got this message : U016887 Communication with the Electronic Ignition Lock has a malfunction. Plz all expert in the house I need urgent response because the mechanic told me it's steering pump problem.

That air suspension will cost you one million naira PER WHEEL, to replace with new components. Total, 4 million naira for new air suspension ALONE.

Why anyone would buy ANY vehicle with air suspension, especially in Africa, is totally beyond my comprehension, unless that buyer is so wealthy that cost of repairs is no object.

If you can make do with re-manufactured parts, check out these prices

Did you change with a new radiator? Did you check if the gear oil level is dropping?

It could be residual oil from the previous leak that was not properly flushed in which case you will have to drain and refill the radiator

I'm sorry, I don't understand this, Arnott remanufactured struts (lifetime warranty) cost just $405 for the rear and approx $700 for the front.

Why anyone would sell for 1m per corner is simply astounding.

Spring conversion kit is well under $2000 too so hardly breaking the bank.

Try to guage the gear oil level while the engine is running and note the guage. Also guage the steering oil and or any other oil that is cooled by the radiator.

Repeat this guaging every morning for awhile (like a month) until u are satisfied the level is not dropping. If it does drop, I would suggest you stop driving the car until a Mechanic has traced the likely cause.

Is he very reliable?

Mobil 1 in Abuja is 18,000 per gallon. You need approx 2gallons (8.5-9litres)
Star oil is 4,500-5,000 per litre. You need 9 litres (your techie should also replace the ATF in the TC via the TC drain plug)

You're not being scammed bro.

All the W124 Mercedes cars I have ever seen have been equipped with automatic transmissions, which are for the most part extremely reliable. My preference would have been for a manual gearbox, but Mercedes only ever produced them in very limited numbers for the W124, primarily for the European market, and never for the V8 powered old vintage Mercs that I drive exclusively.

In short, virtually all running W124 Mercedes cars that you find in Nigeria today, are likely be four cylinder engine variants, with an automatic gearbox.
I have W124 in-line 6cyl, manual transmission.

Wow that is a very rare car, Chukel. Keep it in clean condition, and you never know, it may become a collectors' item among classic car enthusiasts in Europe or stateside, at which point you can export it for sale, and maybe snag a brand new car with the proceeds of that sale.
