Does a coupe use a coupe only windshield?  I thought only the rear window
was coupe specific..
Someone set me straight on that detail please.

Re: [MBZ] Mercedes 2004 E320 4Matic Belt Tensioner Assembly Question.

2021-05-13 Thread Rick Knoble via Mercedes
I have a W210 chassis with the same engine. I don't recall having any issues 
removing the bolts for the tensioner. (Alternator, yes)  You might try soaking 
them with your favorite penetrating lube for a day or so. I got a tensioner at 
Advance Auto Parts and it was a Litens, made in Germany, IIRC. You may resort 
to an induction heater on the head of the bolts to break the corrosion bond 
between the steel and aluminum. Yeah, they aren't cheap, but they are cheaper 
than a timing cover, or perhaps a Helicoil job. Plus they are useful for other 
rusted nuts and bolts and WAY safer than an open flame of a torch. I have an 
attached garage, and I have no desire to rebuild my house because of stupidity. 
I do enough dumb stuff.

Subject: [MBZ] Mercedes 2004 E320 4Matic Belt Tensioner Assembly Question.

Hi All,
Today I decided to change the serpentine belt on my 2004 E320 4Matic w/90K. 
 In addition I wanted to change the belt tensioner assembly and pulley just to 
head off any future issues.  I was able to change the pulley but could not get 
the lower torque bolt on the tensioner assembly loose.  I put quite a bit of 
force but stopped because I was afraid it would snap off and cause some major 
issues!  Thought of applying heat but it is not easy access to get heat on that 
bolt location.
   Anyone have a similar problem or suggestions?  Since it really wasn't 
necessary I was considering just changing the tensioner assembly pulley.  
Mercedes Benz doesn't sell just the pulley but Rockauto does.thoughts?
   Lastly while changing the belt I found the water pump bearings are very 
loose so that's my project next week.  Suggestions on the best water pumps?
   Thanks in advance!

I use premium in all my small engines (mowers, weedeaters, etc.)

It used to be that premium didn't have ethanol, that is why I started
doing it. Not sure that's the case anymore, but they seem to run better

There's a reasonable list of E0 dealers available here (Canada too):
https://www.pure-gas.org/

Anything over 85 pump octane is going to have octane boosters in it, and 
in North America, that's pretty much going to be ethanol or MTBE. MTBE 
isn't an oxidant, but it's not popular with environmentalists.

I think our premium fuel does not have alcohol in it which is why we are 
using it in small engines and in the boats.


I don't use it in my truck or my wife's car. They run fine on regular 
and we use the fuel fast enough that water absorption by the alcohol 
does not pose a problem.

There was a discussion in another forum last weekend, when the usual 
6.0-6.4 hate started up, some guy stepped up to defend them by claiming 
that a simple upgrade from head bolts to head studs was a good 
prophylactic. Then the detractors came out and said they'd rather buy a 
non-defective engine than tear it down and put studs in the block. Then 
a supporter (singular) stepped up and said there was nothing wrong with 
the head bolts to begin with.

Yup. Any cylinder head removal on an newer Ford truck requires removal of the 
cab. That, and the spark plug woes of the 2000's 5.4 engine made for some

Re: [MBZ] Price Of Fuel

2021-05-13 Thread Curt Raymond via Mercedes
 I think Randy is correct on all points. The gas engines available today are so 
powerful, fuel efficient and long-lived the advantages of a diesel are 
considerably less than they used to be.
Last night I hauled the dirty old Ferd to Maine. 4,000# tractor on what is 
probably a 1,000# trailer. Dodge RAM 1500, 5.7l hauled it no problem. 390HP, it 
did hold in 4th (5spd automatic) to pull hills but I never felt like I couldn't 
accelerate.
3/4 ton and heavier trucks need more expensive tires too, like twice the money. 
Insurance and tax will be more too...

[MBZ] Empty Lots, Angry Customers: Chip Crisis Throws Wrench into Car Business

2021-05-13 Thread Floyd Thursby via Mercedes

https://www.wsj.com/articles/empty-lots-angry-customers-chip-crisis-throws-wrench-into-car-business-11620909719

Car makers are building some models without needed semiconductors and 
parking them until chips are available to install. Tens of thousands of 
these vehicles sit at airport lots, a quarry, a racetrack and other 
makeshift holding pens near assembly plants in the South and Midwest.


Ford  Super Duty pickup trucks 
parked bumper to bumper awaiting chips dotted the grounds of the 
Kentucky Speedway a few weeks ago, about 50 miles from a Ford factory in 
Louisville where they were built. At the end of March, Ford had more 
than 20,000 vehicles parked near company factories while waiting for 
chips, a spokeswoman said.GM said it was building some full-size pickup 
trucks without software that helps manage fuel consumption, reducing 
miles per gallon. “By taking this measure, we are better able to meet 
the strong customer and dealer demand for our full-size trucks,” a 
spokeswoman said.A used pickup truck sold for 78% more in April than a 
comparable truck a year earlier, according to auction site Manheim.

Mercedes listed in their ads either. It will often pull up ads for the first 
time that were listed days ago. It is very annoying.
