Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

Im fixing a mercedes e300. and i have this part that i was told that i need but i dont know where it goes. I was told that fix the problem

The mechanic told me that it is a shifter module but I don't know where it is to change it. The car is a 1999 Mercedes E300. The trans doesn't always shift from 1st to 2nd. I have to play with the shifter to get it to shift properly and that doesn't always work.

Hi Gman, Not sure what part it is you're referring to but I can tell you some of the controlls are fitted inside the gearbox. Regards John

    Thanks John. This part supposedly goes inside the transmission. That way above my mechanical skills.

This is not that unusual for Mercedes cars of these years.
Try having the transmission oil filter replaced,and fresh fluid put in.
This may help some, but this may be something which comes with wear and tear.
Unless of course you are willing to spend a lot of money to replace the transmission.

SOURCE: Broken windshield wiper motor in 1990 Mercedes E300

If this MB is built like others I have known, this is going to be a chore. Some models required the removal of the dashboard to replacement the wiper motor. I recall hearing from a frustrated owner (former brother-in-law) that the dealer-estimated labor time was 5 hours.
I wanted to refer you to Chilton or Haynes for an aftermarket manual but surprisingly, neither of them offer one covering your 1990 year.

SOURCE: Bizarre shifting pattern 1984 Mercedes 300D automatic

Hello, The adjust of your t/v cable, not kickdown cable, and the operation of the vacuum controller at the rear of injection pump, and the modulator, is critical for this car to get a good shift.
Put you cable back on, adjust it so that when you have wide open throttle, the cable does not have any slack. Check the black vacuum line by the oil filter housing that goes to the modulator to see if it has vacuum. It should have about 10-15" vacuum and as you increase engine speed it should drop. If you get close to this, the trans should shift ok. If you cannot get vacuum at the modulator line, you need to ck vacuum supply, valve at rear of injection pump, hose routing, etc.
If the B2 piston failed, it would be difficult to move car or slip badly. Also, take into mind that at the bottom of your accelerator pedal stroke is a kickdown switch.
If you accomplish what I instructed, you will probably get a decent shift.
If you find this information to be correct would you please enter a "fixya" rating.
Thanks, Gator241

Hi there
Its probably not a fuse issue as that would affect both sides.
when you replace a blub especially the brake lights it is possible to deform that nice flat panel of metalic strips and if you look carefully it sometimes breaks the plastic pins on which it sits, this causes poor connection to the functional bulb, the soloution is easy, get a small piece of card and fold it over till its about 2-3 mm thick then wedge it behind the panel of strips (top outside corner for brake light) and hey presto the light should work again, top tip use an umbrella and the electric seat to make sure the brake pedal is deppressed to check if alone.

Hi im working on 1986 e300 diesel(124)AC COMPRESSOR IS NOT COMING on i dont have power i have power at relay behine the battery alrede replaced ac pushbuton new reman from mb dealer i need help please


Check the MAGNETiCiC CLUTCH on that compressor! Just pull out the the power connector and directly put it on the (+) terminal, u will hear a clicking sound, thats the magnetic clutch engaging! If u didn't hear anything, magnetic clutch is busted and needs to replace it, if there is available part near ur place! U need an A/C technician to do the job!
Taah!

Hi ihave a mercedes e300 1999 the engine tempeture is 100 evenn after i replaced the water pump ,radiator ,fan and fixed the block


IS the radiotor boiling or is it only the temp showing the indication. If so the meter or the thermocouple could be defective. other wise you need to check your engine tuning/mistiming / that needs to be set right to the manufacturers setting., Have you got this done at an authorised centre or was it a trial/ error basis to replace all these items. I suggest you show it to a reputed / authorised centre for the right diagonosis, right OE parts .. please dont waste money.. I hope my advise is helpful. Good day.

Mercedes E300 turbodiesel, 1999, is poor to start when cold, almost/is impossible to start when hot. no air visible in fuel lines, all seals etc replaced, new fuel tank strainer, fuel pre filter and fuel...


Yes sir , you have a failing valve, soon it will snap in two....please have your head checked. You can do this yourself by placing a long-handed screwdriver , business end down to each cylinder while pressing your ear to the handle(while engine is running)...you will notice a definite difference when you hit which cylinder has the bad valve. Also makes sure the egr valve is clean and your exhaust recycle valve is not stuck.( located in the crossover pipe)
