Question about 1984 Mercedes-Benz 190

1 Answer

I own a mercedes 190e 2.5 16v cosworth 1990 model I have noticed that it has developed a knocking sound rather like a grandfather clock. This seems to come from the fuel tank and might be something to with a component that feeds fuel to the engine It drives normally but this knockingis getting more frequent and mechanics are at aloss to know what to do about it

You may want to check first if the knocking sound proportionately increases speed or decreases with engine RPM. If it does, that should tell a clue as to where to look for the sound. Could be mechanical. I suggest to isolate the problem first, when it occurs, conditions present when it does etc...
