OK I hear you about the DIY bit

but I owned a 1987 Saab 900t most of this time as well and I could DIY most of what went wrong with that car - which was a LOT less than what went wrong with my E320. Very few people on this forum...

Smile I love all your comments!

The only rust on the car is the right front fender which is getting some pretty bad surface rust around the wheel well. I was considering replacing the fender with another "Brilliant Silver" fender...

No it's the condenser not the evaporator

when the mechanic told me $2800 I was sure he was talking about the evaporator. But no, he meant the condenser. And I thought it was totally crazy too. I've done my share of brake jobs, and a few...

I totally agree

The right way to deal with our dependence on oil is raise the price of gasoline by taxing it. To look on the bright side - Hopefully this takes a lot more crappy SUVs off the road than Mercedes V12s...

My mechanic charged $120 to fix it

he seems to have reused the old clamp for the cat side, so I am suppose he got the bolts out of the hole somehow. Charged me $8 for new nuts and bolts, but I'm not complaining!

Can't you use a Becker Bahamas and plug right in?

That's what I did in my 94 E320. I did not have to cut one wire. The plug went right into the back of the radio. The amp still works. I'm not sure what other models this works on.

Possible to replace coax connector at radio?

I messed this up installing my new radio and now the FM reception is spotty. Can this connector to the coax antenna lead be replaced? Or do I need to buy a whole new antenna cable?

I just replaced mine and found the local dealer >

had most of those radiators on sale for almost the same as the Fastlane price. Depends on how much of a hurry you are in, I guess.

I think that is a good test >

If you have good coolant flow, then the radiator should be too hot to touch everywhere. When you replace the radiator, replace the hoses as well.

Is it possible your nitrogen cells are bad?

Mine went on my 1994 wagon and the ride was quite rough - not as rough as on the 1991 4-matic wagon when its cells went, but noticeably rough nonetheless.

This is just another variation of the same sort of snake oil that gets advertised to suckers all the time. It is of no value at all.

you have completely lost reverse. Sounds as if forward is not working too well either.
