Car Talk / Re: Liqui Moly 0w20,5w20,5w30 And 5w40 Available by nakoks(m): 1:56pm On Feb 17
EgunMogaji2:
FWIW, in the USA this is a top shelf oil. Ran it in my Ducati. Ducks have a dry clutch so can use regular oils.

But still I won’t leave any oil in my sump for 6 months in Nigeria.

Thanks for the review.But why not in Nigeria?

U can get a C230 2004 four cylinder engine with the red top.
No C230 is red top.2001/2002 Red top c200k is his best bet.

Senior demeanors jus full this thread grin
OP,follow radauto's advice.
Buy a used engine over there,then if d old one can't be rebuilt, you change it.
Worse advice,it is easier and cheaper to buy that engine in trinity or ladipo ,except you are a parts seller.

I know lol, I actually have a scanner, it's not throwing any codes.
For now I want to service and I don't want just anyone touching it. I reckon a Benz mech would be more knowledgeable on the right filter and Mobil 1 weight to use.
I checked online for the oil weight but I'm getting conflicting info, some say 5w30, some say 0w40. I dont want to make an uninformed choice

On right filter thats not an issue but oil weight is both tricky and your choice.0w40,5w40 and 5w30 would work perfectly but the intricacy of brand,and oil burning and performance is what you need to sort out.

I am yet to see the product that can separate me from Liqui Moly. From Engine oil to Transmission to Power steering to Coolant.Germans are something else.Its the best treatment you can give your Mercedes....

conductor250:

Don't be deceived by the nonsense they're writing in their 2 naira blog, hyping themselves and giving themselves imaginary titles and awards inside their own Benzedes shitbox blog. cheesy

Toyota is the world's most valuable auto brand both in sales numbers, value and cash deposit.
Toyota is in the top 10 most valueable companies in the world (only betterered by Apple, Google & few others)
Toyota is the most reliable car brand (only bettered by their own subsidiary, Lexus)


There is nothing called "best-selling luxury" brand. What we have is best-selling car brand, best selling sedan and best selling SUV brand which are all held by Toyota wink cheesy

Bonus: Benzedes makes more car models than Toyota. They even have large commercial trucks and an electric vehicle which sold only 54 throughout last year in Germany - yet, Toyota with fewer, fine tuned, refined and well finished models sell more products cheesy

Conductor shadow passengers and stay the fvck off benz thread.Dont you have any other ambition in life?

Oil starvation, blockage of the oil screen or orifices or sludge causes oil pump. Also, wear and tear over time can do this.

Most cases it’s the pick up screen that get block

From the two submissions above ,i infer sludge...OP stop using palm oil

I advice people to always go with the factory settings .. I just deliver a/c Compressor to my client. It was for his Camry.. He was told to convert to manual, which he smartly decline...

That been said I have a compressor that I bought for my Benz 05 C240 .. Let me know if it is compatible with your Benz... I will send you the pictures of it in few hours, you might lucky.. For now below picture is a/c compressor that my client order ..

Its good he bought it himself.How many technicians would buy automatic compressors and vouch for it?I hope it works because with these tokunbo compressors(automatic) ,it can work for two weeks and pack up.

hello all, cool
please need some info about the 2006 Benz c230 w203 with m272 engine, I've been reading about the camshaft balancer issues on this engine models but want to know if one can get a ride in which the balance camshaft has been replaced without fear of having such issues coming up again?
secondly I would also want to know at what mileage would it be safe that it has been corrected or won't happen smiley
They were ranges of engine number sequence with that issue.check the engine number of the baby you are buying,it might fall outside that range.

I don't believe the op has got a good wife like u saying,how can she be a good wife when konji is destroying the man that paid her traditional bride price and she does nothing, something is definitely fishy here and also there will be compatibility issues,the man is virle and ready for love, while the lady can relate with the guy for 1year and not feel anything,the op is definitely getting married to a frigid woman and his sex life will suffer,how can i take something for life without testing it and seeing how it works,well it seems the op is a perfect gentleman because many men I know will not tolerate that rubbish, Even before going for the traditional stuffs I must start the engine and Rev it to Max power,the lady even live in owerri and still claiming virgin, haaaaahaaa!!!

My comment above is referring to this absolutely senseless comment, though.

Only difference between an E Class and a C Class is the body? grin
Just so laughable I'm not even going to bother debunking it.

Aren't you the guy who uses 20W50? Or is that nako.ks?

Edit: Yeah, you're the one. You're also the one who uses wrong plugs and just all-around kazeemizes his car. Dem table your matter for beginning of the thread.

Can't take you seriously. Can't take a supposed car enthusiast who doesn't even take proper care of their car, seriously. Shut up and drive your crappy, ill-maintained C320 and allow those who know about cars discuss, boy. [/quote

I have driven both...I do a C200 Kompressor and I have a driven a friend's Camry. I would go with Benz any time in terms of fuel consumption and handling ..Camry is just a paper in wheels

Japanese people have warned us not to talk about handling here since we dont drive AMGs.That all our everyday benz were not built with handling in mind.I have sha passed the message.
