hi themulks
dave here

if you have a rad cap open it and check your coolant level. if it is low fill the rad and leave cap off while you then put the recovery resorvoir at the proper cold level. Move your way along to the thermostat and look for a screw and nut at the top of the housing. If there is one then this is the highest point of the coolant in your vehicle and you will bleed it by opening this hole and running your engine until only coolant flows from the exposed hole. Do not remove the screw just turn it until the hole in the side is revealed. I basically almost remove the screw (till it kind of wobbles) and then turn it back in til it stable (like 1 turn). Be sure that the coolant is flowing without bubbles(air) and not just kinda trickling with short pauses.
If the housing for the thernostat is lower than the rad cap then you bleed it through the rad. Wait for the thernostat to open and the level to go down and then refill it and watch to see no more bubbles (air) escaping. Once the vehicle gets hot you may have to wait for the engine to cool(ie) turn it off for a while and redo it. Also if you are using the thermostat bleed hole be sure to put the rad cap back on before you start the bleed process and keep your eye on the coolant resorvoir adding coolant as needed so you dont **** more air into the engine.

1998 CL500 Mercedes - not run for 20 months - new battery & 10 litres fuel added. Turns over but won't start


bleed the air out of the fuel system . crack the injector nuts and turn over until fuel drips out .re-tension the injector nuts . Check that the stop solenoid is operational. Ensure that the battery is fully charged as the diesel has to spin fast during cranking . Ensure that the glo-plugs are working especially if the ambient temp is low.

Noise fuel injectors


When a diesel injector goes bad and no longer sprays a fine mist of fuel but 'hose pipes', this causes engine knock or hammering. Some folks call this 'nailing' but is usually under acceleration when this 'nailing' is heard.

Injector must be bech tested at a diesel shop.

Why will my Mercedes Sprinter 208D NOT stop running!


There should be a fuel pump relay you might pull to stop, but that won't fix the problem.

I put 1 litre of petrol in my diesel tank by mistake i topped it up with 20 litres of diesel straight away will it be ok to carry on using it


when you think about the ratio 20:1 thats very little so i would say just burn it out. a diesel burns off of combustion not fire

Ran out of diesel, when topped up, it still


air in the lines is exactly whats wrong with it but if it is a newer mercedes it MIGHT not have a manual pump and instead have an electric fuel pump if this is the case toggle the key from off to on position "but DONT crank the engine" waiting about 5 seconds in the on position for about 10 tries the crank the engine for no more than 15 seconds. also note that if it does have an electric fuel pump you will be able to hear a faint hum from under the car while having the key on the on position.

I have put 8 litres of diesel in my 2005 renault scenic i have topped it up with 25 litres of petrol and run it for about 20 miles so far will this be ok once the the tank is empty


The 8 liters of diesel mixed with the 25 liters will make the vehicle smoke a little but if you continue to dilute the diesel/petrol mixture with petrol as your tank level goes down you should have minimal problems. When the tank gets to half you should refill it with petrol for at least two times. The main two problems I could think of that would cause you any concern would be the fuel filter getting partially plugged and the injectors gumming up. By continuing to dilute the tank with petrol you should be okay because the filter and injectors will clean themselves up while you drive. Just make sure you do not take any short drives. Let the engine warm up to operating temperature until you have ran at least two complete tanks of petrol through it.

Petrol instead of diesel


Hi

This is not quite recommended, and to do a 100% job, you should really drain the tank, and refill with just diesel, and renew the fuel filter.

But if it is running acceptably, drive it gently, and keep refilling with diesel.

Good Luck !

Don´t forget to give me a FixYa rating please.
