Sounds like a bad ground somewhere. With a 1995 MB looks like you are an owner of the dreaded wiring harness issues. Check you engine wiring harness, upper and lower and if you see cracked falling apart insulation then it must be replaced. Go to and talk to Rusty and hell try and give you the best deal on those. Pretty easy to replace for a Do It Yourselfer but a little costly for a mechanic. If yours are good pull out the gage cluster by grabbing firmly on the flats on each side and pull straight towards you. The ground wires are bolted behind it. Unbolt, wire brush and rebolt.

My 1995 ford explorer looses power after 40 minutes of driving. I turn off wait for 10 to 15 minutes then resumes again.

Bummer deal! Sounds like the fuel filter is clogged. My motorcycle did the same thing and a new filter and a special kind of additive treatment restored its like new power - though 15 years old. The product from Mega Power is listed below and can be ordered on line. Its made for cars - and a motorcycle works exactly like any car does. Rarely, a fuel pump going dead will overheat and stop. Then restart. You can change the filter. A mechanic can check out the gas pump - Hope this helps. DIY fuel injector cleaners fast acting Ends several tune up problems

M\I have merz 124 model 1988 230cc i have a probelem on my odometer the tempreture is always high till max 120. is it possible to get it repaired anywhere pls help me tq

Mercedes issued a bulletin about 15 years ago about the Temperature Gauge...let's see if I can remember what they said......

''As long as the coolant is not ejected from the reservoir bottle , the gauge being in the RED zone is not cause for alarm as long as when resuming driving on the highway the temperature returns to normal.''

In other words, they expect the temperature to rise when you come into traffic or a drive thro ....but as long as no coolant is escaping, this is normal.

However, if coolant always runs at above 190F you have a problem. This may be because the aux' electric fan/s is/are not operational or the thermostat is not opening fully.

If the system is full and low coolant light is not on and you don't need to fill up the coolant often, then those points apply.

When it gets to 120 next time, get out and leave engine running and open the hood/bonnet. The electric fan/s should be running. If not you need to check for power at the fan/s or from the Temp' Sender on the cylinder head .

On these older Mercedes the fan will come on if you bump the fan boss with your hand or a rubber mallet.

One more test: With engine cold but running for about 2 minutes... grasp the top radiator hose...if it is firm you have a head gasket failure or cracked head.

I have a problem with my 1995 Merc c220, the fuel

Modern plastics seem to exude something that collects on all the surfaces inside the instrument clusters of many cars. When it settles on the pointers of instruments like the speedo and fuel gauge it produces the effect you mention, sticking the pointer to the rest stop until the meter has enough oomph to pull it free or you go over a bump.
If you have a good magnifying glass you should be able to see what's creating the problem by looking at the ends of the pointers..Actually, just condensation can do the same thing but it's not so sticky and you'd see a mist in the perspex cover too. Since the speedo and fuel gauge control comes from completely different areas these are the only thing I can think of that may link the two things. A couple of extractor hooks from MB would allow you to pull the instrument assembly from the dash. Disconnect the battery if you go this far as it's so easy to short something behind the instruments. Then it's a question of unclipping the two connectors at the back, pulling the cluster free, and unclipping the perspex cover. The procedure's well covered in the Haynes manual.

I have a 1995 Grand Caravan ES with a rebuilt 3.8L V6. It also has a remanufactured PCM. The engine will run and as it warms (registered on temp gauge) it will start missing and eventually stop. Restart...

Do you get a check engine light? If so, read the codes with a scanner and chase down the clues. Does the PCM match the car and engine? Was the original engine a 3.8L? 5 to 10 minutes is not very long for an engine to cool down appreciably. Hopefully, the PCM codes will indicate whether the missing problem is fuel or ignition related.

I have a 1999 Toyota Camry (4 Cyl). It comes up

The sensor for the fans is in the rad at the bottom. T-stat may be bad or the rad may be clogged. Cooling system needs attention.

Gauge reading in red

Well, without being described what the gauge looks like, im gunna take a shot in the dark and say its the oil pressure gauge. You didnt say which way red either. You DEFINATELY need to have it checked out asap. As that will blow up your engine.

My 1995 Mercedes Benz E420 has lost power gradually

Have you check the transmission fluid level? It sounds like it is low. You might not have a dipstick in that unit. I'd add at least 2 quarts and test drive it.
