The later steering wheel may not fit because of changes in the electrical connections. I had that same issue finding a better steering wheel for my ‘95. Unfortunately, I don’t remember the date of...

If the lamp failure unit has burned strips in it, you pretty much have to replace the unit. A good used one is probably the best choice. I had to do that with one of my cars some years ago.

Low oil pressure switch

VW put a 1.0 bar (15 psi) oil pressure switch in their TDI engines. I adapted one for my 95 E300D. If the oil pressure drops below 1 bar, which it should never do, the switch operates a very bright...

Bio-diesel and cooking oil

Cooking oil is much too expensive to use for making automotive fuel. Not that it cant be used, but the refiners, like business people anywhere, want to use the least expensive feedstock available. ...

The OVP relay is generally "good" or "dead." Given the age of the car and all, I'd be more inclined to suspect a wiring failure due to the "environmentally friendly" insulation used on wires in those...

The engine in a 1996 E300D should be a 606.912, I believe, at least that's what's in mine. The oil-to-coolant heat exchanger is on the driver's side, near the oil filter canister, so it can't be the...

With the exception of possible stuck glow plugs, the 606 is as bullet-proof as the other 60x engines and in some ways better than the 61x since there are no valves to adjust. The 210 chassis does...

That's actually workable, JB, with the caveat that you'd have to install a separate aux pump, because the 124 version is a combined pump/valve while the 210 is valve-only. But it would work, and...

I believe the gas and diesel versions use different relays, based on a lot I've seen in the junkyard. Your car is a 5-cylinder OM-602? and the gas cars use a 6-cylinder M-103 or M-104 (don't remember...
