Recently, my AC would only give desired out put when on top speed. Once I'm driving slow it becomes like only fan is running.

My check engine light also always coming up even after due servicing.

Any advice on what to do?
Does your check engine light stay on? If yes follow the advice up.

And you in your wildest dreams think CodeRed will spend time on a gloryland conversion? It's like asking radautoworks to engage in such nonsense.... You must sign an NDA first and waive all your legal rights.... I trust temi and code red. Instead of repairing the apparition... returns it and pick another thing from that lot. File a lawsuit against the seller if need be

Don't you think you failed to add something?

Lessons will be learnt, I would have known even far better than you with many years of experience without any major challenges like me and my next MB will be far better than your 190grin

Thanks for keeping me inform o.f what to expect at least.

Cheers!

Please everyone your advise is needed here.

The dealer that sold the MB I bought didn't inform me it was conversation even for the 3 times I went b4 closing the deal. The only mistake I did was not going with a mechanic but must one always go with a mechanic to inspect a car especially a tokunbo b4 buying? Now, I've not even started using the car it's already giving issues.

I've done registration already. I've done change of break pad and stabilizer linkage and have also bought some parts to replace the bad once, e.g... Side mirror and water can for the radiator. I've spent almost 100k already.

What do I do now please, the dealer asked me to bring the car tomorow to give to his AC technician, he claims not to have any knowledge of conversion about the car.

What advise do you have for .this situation.
You didn't do due diligence. You may not be able to insure that car. Return it. Let him give you a normal car

Mixture of xylene, ATF and diesel. Xylene being the major constituent. I can't remember the ratios now. I will have to dig up the literature I got the formula from when I find my old phone.
How safe?




Engine Modifications

Homemade octane booster formulas

I found this, and thought it might be usefull.
Formula #1 - Toluene
R+M/2.........114
Cost...........$2.50/gal
Mixtures with 92 Octane Premium
10%...........94.2 Octane
20%...........96.4 Octane
30%...........98.6 Octane
Notes: Common ingredient in Octane Boosters in a can. 12-16 ounces will only raise octane 2-3 *points*, i.e. from 92 to 92.3. Often costs $3-5 for 12-16 ounces, when it can be purchased for less than $3/gal at chemical supply houses or paint stores.

Formula #2 - Xylene
R+M/2.........117
Cost...........$2.75/gal
Mixtures with 92 Octane Premium
10%...........94.5 Octane
20%...........97.0 Octane
30%...........99.5 Octane
Notes: Similar to Toluene. 12-16 ounces will only raise octane 2-3 *points*, i.e. from 92 to 92.3. Usually mixed with Toluene and advertised as *race formula*.

Formula #3 - Methyl-tertiary-butyl-ether (MTBE)
R+M/2.........118
Cost...........$3.50/gal
Mixtures with 92 Octane Premium
10%...........94.6 Octane
20%...........97.2 Octane
30%...........99.8 Octane
Notes: Oxygenate. Very common in octane booster products. Has lower BTU content than toluene or xylene, but oxygenate effect makes the gasoline burn better and produce more energy.

Formula #4 - Methanol or Ethanol
R+M/2.........101
Cost...........$0.60 - $1.75/gal
Mixtures with 92 Octane Premium
10%...........94.3 Octane (Methanol)
10%...........94.7 Octane (Ethanol)
20%...........Not Recommended
Notes: Methanol is wood alcohol. Ethanol is grain alcohol and found in Gasohol in 10% ratios. Both alcohols are mildly corrosive and will eat gas tank linings, rubber and aluminum if used in excessive ratios. Main ingredient in "Gas Dryers", combine with water.

Formula #5 - Isopropyl Alcohol and Tertiary Butyl Alcohol
R+M/2.........101
Cost...........$0.60-$1.50/gal
Mixtures with 92 Octane Premium
10%...........94.5 Octane
20%...........Not Recommended
30%...........Not Recommended

Notes: Similar to Methanol/Ethanol. Isopropyl Alcohol is simply rubbing alcohol.

Sample Mixture
To make your own octane booster, it is easiest to make up a large batch, and then bottle it up in "dosage-size" uses.
Below is the basic formula of one of the popular octane booster products. To make eight 16 ounce bottles (128 oz = 1 gal):

100 oz of toluene for octane boost
25 oz of mineral spirits (cleaning agent)
3 oz of transmission fluid (lubricating agent)
This product is advertised as "octane booster with cleaning agent *and* lubricating agent!". Diesel fuel or kerosene can be substituted for mineral spirits and light turbine oil can be substituted for transmission fluid. Color can be added with petroleum dyes

I made some myself. Bought some from radautoworks, used stp brand as well sometimes but eventually started making mine and when the pings stopped (probably when the carbon on the piston cleared out), I stopped adding the boosters.

How did you make the boosters

The other thread was closed before I could give updates and then again I mentioned refunds were being initiated in other threads I was mentioned.
He's never at his shop and truthfully, I no get the resources to go after him. in person...

Anyways, I only came to warn others about him.
You all should beware of his new handles
Could easily be identified
What are his new handles?

princeeze1:
Bear your cross, you took people here for granted. You initiated a settlement plan via third party with psalmz and never bothered to inform the house, we got to know from a third party was the reason you went silent. What stopped you from updating via other thread when the original thread was closed? You were cajoled not to? People would have been able to deciphy it was delay tactics, when you eventually came along, you excuse was lame and you went MIA again, you want us to be calling you on phone abi? No one deserves to cry more. than the bereaved. On a second thought, how come someone with a known address to you, no distance barrier was able to do all these to you and easily got off the hook. Somethings are better handled outside, we can only call him out at most.

Teeboy2300:
So here's what happened.

My redmi 7's back camera cracked. I completely removed the back camera glass so I wouldn't get distorted photo. After some months, I noticed that my back camera started becoming worse than the front one. Even with gcam, it was just a blurry yellowish mess and it could hardly focus on anything. I searched for some reviews and I found out that dust may have entered into the lens since there was nothing protecting it.

I found 2 solutions and I don't know which would be better. Do I simply give it to a technician to wipe away the dust from the lens at a cheaper rate(although it could be risky) or simply buy a new lens( woul.d be expensive)
I have the lens for sales

At least, the masses are benefitting more from Cacovid either by loot or whichever way.

Nope. They're trying hard to protect their own selfish interests... Half of that amount is what requires to resume back to school...
