When key is in ignition i turn it to start position..there is a ratteling or pumping sound coming from the base of the throttle body.

the transmission started to shift from 2nd to 3rd and then the car completely shut down. I was able to restart it but it continued to shut down. Why?

THERE IS NOTHING ON THE INTERNET to go by and local mechanics have not worked on one as old as mine?!?

My 4-cylinder with non-electrical fuel injection, Benz engine starts to stall when rev it up after first start up in the morning; the engine starts up oaky, ideling may be a bit rough. But it works okay after warm up to normal operatinal temperature. what can be the causes? thanks

Also when i am turning a corner it makes a sound like a rusted door was being open

ignition stuck several times, no longer will move out of lockled position, key easily removed from ignition, I have tried to move the steering wheel, it is also locked.

MY 1988 Mercedes W124 190E is having an air-conditioner's compressor problem. The compressor first shuted off itself, after I ran over a pool of street water on the road, and the water splashed over near the A/C condensor or so. But after shuted the engine off, and restarted, the A/C compressor and A/C worked normal again. Now, the compressor will shut off itself during some normal drivings with no street water splashing!! After restarted the engine, it works again as well.

Your prompt response will be appreciated, since it is getting hot out there!

My mercedes 1988 260E 8valves engine, has a rough cold start in the morning, engine will rattle, but once it warms up, the engine runs okay. what would be possible problems?

thank you for your advice!

My 1988 260E Mercedes is making ticking noises so I had her valve lifters replaced. The mechanics also said there were no engine oil in them, so he quickly cleaned up the oil pipes. But I still can hear the ticking noises.
Please help.

The mechanics also said that one of the camshaft lobes is scratched, could it be causing the ticking noise now? Thanks!

Old hydrolyic valve lifters making moises, so I have them replaced with new lifters, but still making noises.
So I have the new ones checked if there is oil in the lifters. There is no significant oil in them. I believe the lifters' oil supplies pipes and so on, need to be clean/cleared up for oil to flow better. I'd appreciate any recommendations for solvent or liquid solution used and methods!. Note the oil pump is working fine, with enough oil pressure.

Thank you.

My 190E has always had problems but not like this one! While my car was in idle, the Airbag light came on for no reason at all. I looked in the manual and it says nothing about it. Can you help? Thanks!

I replaced booster and mastercylinder. All 5 brake lines and calipers. System has presure until I start engine and then no brakes and pedal drops to floor?

I checked the window motors and so as the regulators. I strongly agree that the problem might be electrical.
