It seems some 119.9 engines (w140) have air pumps and some do not.
Why would it vary? What does the air pump do for performance or air pollution?
Ok - Here's the rub.
My air pump seized. Should I replace the pump and spend over $1,000 at FastLane, or should I just remove the air pump, get a new belt and live without an air pump.
After replacing the water pump last week, this just isn't a good time for me.
Required steps to remove and replace the air pump are appreciated.
Thanks for the help
