Hi Gary, I can't help you with any recommendations in that area, but I can recommend my mechanic in Tarzana, which is a bit of a drive, but well worth it.

Check out the MR. MB Motors thread.

Good luck with finding the source of the problem. have you checked out JIM F's Page yet?

He has written up quite a bit about your car as he has one himself, and has a list of what all the codes mean.

I am sure someone here can point you to his site, I always forget the link...

Get the attention of our own Ernesto (BENZ-LGB) who is here most every day, he too says MR. MB in Tarzana is the best of the best, but on that thread mentioned seeing Christiansen's in "Strawberry Country" he is residence is near you and also, someone else mentioned "Dieter's" as being good. Unfortunately, no city was mentioned, but it's a lead anyway.

BENZ-LGB will give you all the details if you can get him to look at this thread

I just sent him a PM hooking him up with a few shops

Enrique is STILL the way to go...even if you live in the Bay Area.

Jim, did you check the thread I posted in the MR MB thread about the SEC 4-sale in So. Calif.?

any closer shops?

I'm also looking for a mechanic in the Thousand Oaks area as I've just moved down here. I have 94 c280 with the Check Engine light just coming on and am looking for some help on it.

If you ask around the best in the area is in Encino. The shop did a lot of work for me at reasonable prices and it was all ways right. I believe the guys name is Enrico. About three or four blocks south of the main turn off the 101 into Encino.. Sorry I can't remember the name of his shop. It is on the right with a very faded sign. I moved from LA a couple of years ago.
