1990 Mercedes-Benz 300TE 4MATIC Problems

Rough Running Engine Due to Misfire

A rough running motor or lack of power can be caused by a failed distributor cap or rotor, ignition wires (or their resistors), or valve cover gasket leaks. If the valve cover gasket leaks, oil can pool where the ignition wire resistor connects to the spark plug. The resistor can fail and the spark plug may not fire because of a short circuit through the oil.

Improper Temperature Output From HVAC

One or more blend door vacuum actuators may fail resulting in the incorrect output temperature from the HVAC system. Failed actuators will require replacement to restore proper HVAC operation.

The Differential May Develop Leaks From the Seals or Cover

High mileage or older vehicles commonly develop leaks from the differential seals and/or cover. Our technicians recommend a complete reseal of the differential unit whenever these leaks are repaired.

I have a pristine 1990 300TE 4MATIC only 52000 original miles. The color is Green on Green and has all the records from Mercedes Benz of New Orleans. Robert Taylor is my Service Advisor. I want to sale it. If anybody is interested contact me: danzam012000@yahoo.com
I have a black one with gray leather.Drives awesome.Put in a 92 engine,great.Not sure if the tranny drives at 4th gear because at 65 miles /hour revs at 3000. Head turner with no ac working.I have to get it fixed this week.Former owner took out 4matic because she thought it wasted the tires too fast
