You are absolutely wrong.


From your experience, show us proofs of performance for other motor oils.

Long post alert - in short, don't buy unless it's cheaper than 1m.

On a lighter note, I'm tempted to concur with the sensible advise proposed by those senior men above. But then again, if the price was 1m or less I'll advise you scan the vehicle and post codes (don't use a generic scanner, you’ll end up with what the instrument cluster is telling you, find a C3/C4 clone and it'll pull the DTCs.

For the brakes, that year model doesn't use the notorious SBC, so it may just be a brake switch or even worn brake pads (brake pad wear and tear sensors), Airbags are the more serious issue, confirm vehicle wasn't involved in an accident before (the airbag lights could come up if the SAS isn't properly calibrated after a control stalk/angle sensor replacement. Does the car's horn work or it's low pitched?

As for engine coolant, does the instrument cluster say "check coolant level"? If yes 3 things are in play here, 1. Blown head gasket 2. Leaking coolant hoses/coolant expansion tank/water pump - all of them will fail, it's only a matter of time (I can't find the post to the DIY i did sometime ago on my own, but it's somewhere here in this thread). 3. Confirm vehicle's thermostat hasn't been tampered with (easy way to check look at the temp guage, if it doesn't read it means kazeem don comot water switch/coolant temperature sensor).

As for AC - if you hold am stand, Aunty rada will sort you out. But if you're on a budget like I'm always. There are nice folks on here who will be able to provide professional direction. But be prepared, you'll most likely change that compressor, vacuum the entire system, maybe the condenser and if you're really unlucky the evaporator core. Before i forget, the expansion valve must be changed, I suffered for 600 years before Gazzuzz pointed me in that direction.
Don't worry about the HVAC's electrical system - that SAM was built to code, I read somewhere that it is the last electrical component that dies on the W211.

Oh, here's a picture of my W211's instrument cluster - my kid brother's mantra is if it dies, then it dies !

Here we are..... My HVAC system isn't powering on, the radio remains at the star logo too any thoughts?

Good evening, please I’d love to know if it’s normal for light white smoke to come out from the hood of my car (c300 2010) each time I pass through water?? It doesn’t happen on a when driving on a dry road. I checked and it seems to be coming from the fan/ radiator area.

Water touching a hot surface will quickly evaporate and cause white smoke, you probably have your engine splash shieldd off (engine sand protector).

What model of W203 and where's your location?
Re: Mercedes Benz Thread by blissbliss: 6:05am On Jun 10
Hello people,

Please why is 4matic usually discouraged?

Also, what nice suv can a 4/5m budget procure? Could be a clean registered one.

Thanks all.
Re: Mercedes Benz Thread by awesome9ja: 6:36am On Jun 10
Valid question. From what was said by mechanic and expert on this forum. Parts are very expensive.
