The Sprinter valve sounds worth investigating, thanks! The body of mine leaked where the third plastic leg was tacked on; I was able to fix it with epoxy. The brass valve parts do come all apart;...

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...

You may have already solved the front sway bar fit problem but if not, I recommend one from a T-sedan (station wagon). They are fairly large diameter and, since the T-sedans came with a 6-cylinder...

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...

The '95 E300D indeed has a monovalve, Sixto, the one that leaks. The twin exits from the heater core join together at the base of the valve, which has a single electric plunger. The valve is special...

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...

Flap! Flap! Flap!

The 6-cylinder engine is quite different from the five. The six cylinders are 'paired,' which allows the use of resonance techniques. You can't do that with five cylinders, which is why the 605...

There's also a flap in the crossover pipe; together the flaps 'tune' the apparent length of the intake manifold, as others have already noted. A third flap, just in front of the EGR valve, is...

AFAIK, both fans run in high or low speed. That may depend on the year of your 124. In my '95 E300D, the fans come on in low speed if it's at all warm outside and the a/c has been running for awhile....
