anti-jerk valve

I explained this problem to my local MB guru, and suggested we should take a drive. He said we knew exactly what the problem was without needing to experience it. Apparently, there is an "anti-jerk...

Reverse

I just found out another interesting clue. It is easy to make this behavior happen in first gear, but impossible in reverse.

Diff mount

OK, I think you are asking me if my differential is isolated from the frame with some kind of rubber mount. No, it seems to be bolted right up to the frame.

Jerking backlash behavior in 190D with manual transmission >>> VIDEO <<<

I have a 240D and a 190D 2.2. The 190D has about 5 more HP and weighs about 600 lbs less. This makes the 190D feel much more powerful at least for 240D drivers. Most other folks will think it is...

Clutch springs

Thanks T,
I hadn't thought about the springs being tuned to the engine, but that makes some sense. I now have another question: Since I have a 2.5 transmission on a 2.2 car, should I match the...

Diesel clutch different from gas clutch: WHY?

A year ago, I put a manual transmission, flywheel, and clutch (from a 1987 190d 2.5) into my 1985 190d 2.2. Since then the car has been great, but I have noticed a lot of backlash in the drive...
