I recently purchased a 2000 E430 AWD with 215000 miles. Can you tell me factory recommendations?
Starts with surge and then a high idle. Codes are P0110,P0100,P0136,P0604 & P1580. Replaced MAF, Pedal position sensor, throttle body, brake light switch & spark plugs. If the pedal is depressed fully when starting and run wide open, the engine will smooth out and then run normal with lower idle, acceleration, and run fine.
E430 will only accelerate to 1000 and 1500 RPMs. On start it revs to 2500 and back to idle. Changed the accelerator pedal sensor. There are no codes stored. The BAS and ESP lights are on. Brake lights work. And it runs smooth not rough.
The spring inside is unhooked. And the mirror folds back.
more often now then not my windows especially the passenger side will only go half way up usually if I keep toggling the switch it eventually goes up the sunroof will open a few inches at a time but closes fine
