Question Answered: 2004 Mercedes-benz slk320 excessive wear on front tires
December 15, 2008, 10:53 AM
http://repairpal.com/car_types Go to the Repairpal estimator and under the common problems section it talks about excessive tire wear. Irregular and premature tire wear can be caused by the lower control arm bushings cracking and causing excessive movement at the control arm pivot point. Ball joints can also wear out prematurely, causing similar tire wear symptoms.

Use a white paper towel to see if the fluid has a green or orange color if it does have color its more than likely your heater core is leaking, If the heater core is leaking your windows will stay fogged up. If your carpet dries out after a few days the window was slightly open during the rain storm. Heater core replacement is a very expensive job because its located behind the dash board.
Question Answered: headlamp adjustment
December 15, 2008, 10:12 AM
Usually there's a screw at the top of the headlight mounting ring that needs to be screwed in to make the headlight aim higher, Park in front of your garage door to see where the headlights are shining and adjust the bulb until it is shining a little lower than the passenger side bulb because you don't want it to shine into oncoming traffic.

Toyota motor mounts get hard over time unlike honda or nissan motor mounts, we sold quite a few of them at my parts store, even though they look good the rubber in the motor mount is so hard the dampening effect of the rubber is past its useful life, Usually its the right or passenger side mount is the one that needs to be changed. This should help with your motor mount problem.

Delamination of the diesel fuel tank can occur resulting in a loss of power due to debris clogging the fuel filters. In some cases the fuel injection pump and/or fuel injectors have also been damaged. Ford has issued a service bulletin (#19728) addressing this concern.
