Question about 1992 Mercedes-Benz 190

1 Answer

Radiator coolant I recently noticed a small crack in the lower radiator hose of my 1992 190E 2.6 Mercedes Benz. I quickly replaced it and started to add coolant. After adding, I turned on the engine and the coolant started to drop as the engine "burped." But now, the engine is still running very hot. What's wrong?

First question is after you changed your hose and refilled while the car was running with the radiator cap locked but loose with the heater on high and set on hot run the car till the thermostat opens shut the car down once it does anti freeze level will drop and air will rise and (extreme caution taken with drain pan below ) start the car use two people run it shut it down let air escape threw cap start again run a couple of minutes shutdown again let cool down take cap off restart car with cap off watch radiator level will somone lightly increases gas peddle refill level to top reinstall cap completely tight then let idle down some vehicles have a small bleeder mounted in the thermostat houseing or in line with the radiator circulation system

How to replace thermastat in a 2006 mercedes cls500

Make sure the engine is fully cold, open the radiator cap on the plastic reservoir, drain the coolant into a large pan by opening the plastic plug at bottom of radiator - reclose the plastic plug when drained. Cover the top half of the serpentine belt with a plastic bag. Remove the spring clip radiator hose connection at the engine block/thermo housing. Move the radiator hose back and forth gently until it breaks loose. Loosen the 10mm bolts holding the thermo assembly in place. Tap the thermo housing with a rubber or plastic hammer or pry the housing gently with a long blade screwdriver from behind by the lip, Remove the bolts all the way, remove the thermo housing, clean the circular ring area of debris in the engine block where the thermostat sits. Place the new thermostat assembly in place, torque bolts to 5 nm, then back and forth to 12nm then to 22nm. Replace the radiator hose, put on a new clamp and fill radiator with coolant as well as the plastic canister. put the cap on the reservoir, remove plastic bag from serpentine belt, start car - check for leaks, readjust coolant level after 20-25 minutes.

I have problems with my the Mercedes A170 CDI 2001 (W168) automatic transmission. There is high pressure in the cooling system (hoses are hard) when started the engine and coolant level fluctuates up and...

To have high pressure in the coolant system you have compression pressure escape into the coolant system. If you simply replaced the head gaskets without checking for cracks or having the head machined to eliminate warped head then you have pretty much wasted your money as the problem still exists. You will have to pull the head again and have it checked out. Put a coolant system pressure tester in place of the radiator cap and start the engine and see if there is a rise in pressure on the gauge.

2kg sds fault

have a coolant system pressure test done to determine any leaks. have a compression test done to check for head gaskets and cracks.. Have a flow test done to determine if cores are blocked. Check radiator cap for correct operation. Check return hose to reservoir to ensure it is air tight and allows coolant to be drawn back to radiator when cooling down

2002 bonneville coolant leak

check water pump hose and the pump. a clogged thermostat can cause pressure build up and bust hoses. and of course take radiator out and check for lower hoses and crackes. if no luck, put water in radiator and run car and check for leaks. small cracks in aluminum are hard to see but expands when radiator gets hot.

Remove radiator from 1993 mercedes 190 remove radiator from 1993 mecedes 190E

First remove the fan shroud - undo the two clips on the left and right by pulling up. It should be possible to now ease the shroud upwards passed the fan. Drain the coolant (there is red valve on the right hand side lower corner of the radiator for this purpose) Remove the top and lower hoses. Un-clip the side panels that fill the gaps either side of the radiator aperture. Remove the two top clips, by pulling them upwards, that secure the radiator to the car body cross member at the front. The radiator should just lift up and out. Beautifully simple German design.

You could have a hose leak or the plastic tank for the radiator has a crack in it. Take it to the Radiator Shop and have them do a pressure test, they should fbe able to find the leak with ease.
