1992 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.

ABS & 4MATIC Light come on (1 answer)

My ABS kicks in hard when I brake. I keep my foot on the brake and it fights me! It is pushing up and takes longer to brake. Sometimes I wonder if she will stop.

The 4MATIC light comes on too. Does this mean there is a problem with the 4MATIC or that it is engaged? Same with the ABS light....
