W124 or W210 Diesel?

Hey, guys. I've been thinking since my last post, and it seems that the W124 and W210 diesels around here don't cost a whole lot more than the older 123/126 diesels that are in good shape. So, I'm...

Weren't the 93-95 W124 6 cylinder models equipped with the M104? It that's right, then if you wanted a M103, you would have to go back to a 1992 model, right? That having been said, which one of the...

Hello, everyone. I haven't had time to post in quite a while, but I've made some adjustments to my automotive "fleet" since my last post. I sold my 94 Cadillac and my 94 Lincoln, and have a deposit...

Uh, 300E models do not have Turbos. They are also a gas engine, as opposed to your 300SDL's Diesel. They also are on two different chassis, the 300E on the W124 and the 300SDL on the W126. So, in...

My 560SEL has always had really tight steering. It got a little better with a new left lower ball joint, but it still is the stiffest power-assisted steering vehicle I've ever driven. (Way tighter...

Lost Key- 86 560SEL

Okay, this is embarassing :o. I've managed to lose both keys to my MB. Is there any way to get a replacement key other than the dealership?

Looks very nice. Every now and then I see a used W210 with really high mileage (200k miles plus), but they usually are well maintained.

W126 Rear differential leak

When I moved my 560SEL today, I noticed several stains on my cement, notably under where the rear axle was. It smelled like gear lube. Where are the most common spots to leak on these cars?

It is now noisy all of the time. From my search, it seems that this is either a clogged filter making the pump work too hard, or the pump/pumps are on their way out.

86 560SEL Noisy Fuel Pump at Startup

Rear End Chirping?

The 560 has developed a chirping/squeeling if you get up to 55, and let off of the gas without applying the brake.

Any clue as to what's up?

Thanks, Dave
