Q. 1)Car runs rought (HESITATES) in idle, sometimes smooths out after driving, usualy it dont. It does little less hesitation in traffic light idle. Sometimes it smoothes out after turning the airconditioner on, however the dealer chkd compression test ok, no chk engine light on. Car starts right away. They think it a gas issure that's used in winter & was told to try end of june gas. They also think it could be a leaking valve or FI (cleaning). The compression test was very good. I used Techron & Lucas didnt help. changed gas stations didnt help. did tunup, air filter didnt help. they said the hesitation is not from fuel pump. I do have a slight leak from R-Valave Cover. Accelaration is good????? please let me know. Q. 2) Noise (clunking) from R-Upper Rear Shock area, over small bumps: lower R-R suspension components are very tight. HOW DIFFICULT IS IT TO REMOVE THE R-TRUNK PANNEL FROM THE INSIDE, SO I CAN SEE WHETHER IT'S THE UPPER SHOCK MOUNTS OR BUSHINGS OR IS IT THE AIR SHOCK. HOW DIFFICULT TO CHANGE THE AIR-SHOCK?? ANY HELP WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED!!!
HOW TO CHANGE OR WHAT PROBLEMS ASSOCIATED WITH SRS TO SHOW?, DEALER SAID IT'S A DRIVER SIDE AIR-BAG WIRE HARNESS THAT NEEDS WORK. IS THERE ANYTHING ONE MIGHT DO UNDER DRIVERS SEAT TO, MAYBE CLEAN CONNECTORS OR ANYTHING? THANKS
RE:my E500 Mercd. Benz which I found @ the dealer each of my car "air-spring" is $847, website's "belestiens" it's $620, I wondering if one must have the "STAR" diagnostic machine in-order to Diagnose the problem? Recently I've NOTICED ONLY THE REAR LEFT SIDE IS "SAGGING" & NOT (ANY-LONGER) THE REAR RIGHT SIDE? SOMEONE TOLD ME IT COULD BE A "SEAL" ON 1 OF THE AIR-SPRING(S)GONE BAD? MY Q. IS "NOW" THE REAR RIGHT SIDE AIR-SPRING IS NOT SAGGING (IT DID BEFORE), SHOULD I CHANGE THE LEFT SIDE ONLY, OR CHANGE BOTH SIDES?
Rear-end of car on both sides goes(Sags) down after (30min) car turned off, goes up when car starts up (w/in 5min). How can I know if 1 or both Air-Springs or any of their seals are leaking air? Could 1 seal be leaking & not both or an air-line damaged & not able to maintain the air pressure? Problem is constant. Thanks
