1992 Mercedes-Benz 300TE 4MATIC Problems

Noise and/or Smoke From Drive Belt Area

The emissions air injection pump can seize, causing a loud squealing noise followed by smoke from the drive belt. If the engine is not turned off, the belt will break, turning on the alternator/battery warning light.

Squeaking/Worn Brake Pads May Require Rotor Replacement Also

Due to the size and material used on the brakes of these vehicles, the brakes may start to squeak around the 50 percent wear point. The brake rotor surfaces become uneven, causing a lip to form at the outer edge of the rotor. Because of this, the rotors are usually replaced when the pads are worn (pad life varies depending on driving style and terrain).

Engine Oil and Coolant Leaks Resulting in Fulid Intermix

Internal and External engine oil & coolant leaks can develop from the head gasket and/or timing cover gasket; these leaks should be repaired before the engine oil and coolant intermix which can result in severe engine damage.

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....
