Question about Cars & Trucks
First engine dropped big end bearings at 350,000 klm new engine has done the same at 530,000 klm both engines were always serviced by mercedes dealerships but they cant explain why?both engines never used oil between services.Vehs was doing 800klms a day but has dopped to 456klms a day for the past 2 years servicing has been done every 25,000 klms using only mercedes parts and c3 oil
All engines will have a main bearing failure. They often have a blockage that prevents oil from cooling it down properly. Only a regular engine teardown can prevent this.

Testimonial: "thanks for your advice, this is being done at the moment and im waiting for the results along with the costs of repair.Mercedes sprinters seem to have a long history of mechanicle failures, and i put it down to lower cost parts being made.Mercedes is not producing high quality sprinters as what they were in the past,when every part was manufactured in Germany."

SOURCE: Servicing my Mercedes C200
Gearbox -> Synthetic automatic transmission fluid
Differential -> Either 90W engine oil or 85W90 gear lubricant
Engine oil -> Not really sure of the weather in Uganda but I take it it stays pretty warm all year long, probably 20W-40 or 15W-40 synthetic
Spark plugs -> Well there could be a long debate over that... if you're having engine performance/missing problems i'd try replacing them right away but with any gasoline ignition system i try to replace the plugs about once a year... plug wires about 5 years... regardless of condition. In my case, i don't usually go for expensive "platinum" or whatever kind of plug that costs about 10 times as much and usually don't do much of a difference... I'd rather buy reasonably priced spark plugs and replace them regularly, and get a much better result and more money in my pockets... because even if you did buy the expensive ones you usually end up replacing them at about the same time you would have the cheaper ones, with the same effect

hi, this is just a reset issue. sometimes the CPU can become confused. the original warning that informed you about your gas cap is still in the cpu's memory. you will have to reset the cpu and, this will clear the warning. After the reset, it will stay off. chevy cpu's tend to do this from time to time.

A little acrobatic exercise for you............
1/ Put the Key in the # 2 position .
2/ Hit the "MI" button on the dash twice .
3/ Put the Key in the # 0 position (key out position) within 10 seconds of hitting the MI Button .
4/ Press the MI Button and turn the key into the # 2 position at the same time. There will be a confirmation noise .
5/ Release, Smile...and be on your way, your all done. !
