The car won't warm up any quicker if your thermostat is working correctly.

The electric fans will do the job when you're moving, and in cold weather Canada, but idling in traffic on a hot day you'll find that the alternator can't keep up with the electrical demand unless you upgrade the alt.

Mercedes for some reason wasn't very aggressive with alternator output through the mid-90s.

My next step is to purchase a 150 amp.That should give me extra power.But my alt still holds 14.5 volts running line heaters,filterheater,lights,heater on high,and fan.

That guy called "Joe Tech" on ebay has new fan clutches for many MBZ models for $98. It's aftermarket though, so beware.

until I came across this thread I didn't realize my fan was clutched. it appears I have the aluminum fan, and that the clutch has failed in the "always on" mode.
