Fredericksburg VA-Anyone nearby?

Hi everyone,

Well, my 500E has been totaled thanks to a knucklehead in an ML350 that couldn't bother paying attention to what was in front of him (in this case, my 500E). Hit me hard enough to...

What concerns me is that in the MBZ service manual it indicates that a hardened cam should be installed with the hardened followers. If I...

Your diff is fine, your car simply has an open (non-limited slip) diff so that's how it behaves. If you were to hold the pass side wheel, you'd see the driver's side turning :-)

M103-hardened rockers w/old cam?

Hello all,

My 300TE (1988) recently developed a valve tapping noise, which I just determined was a worn rocker arm. The cam lobes all look fine, surprisingly, but the old-style rocker arm is...

Okay, I pulled the temp switch plug: no fans (with A/C on, engine running; no compressor engagement).
