    Re: From Russia with love - but living in Norway

    Today I got the car back. As already written, the oxygen sensor (lambda/O2-sensor) has been replaced. With a lot of wheel spin, the car now did 0-100 at 8,3 seconds, from previously 10,2-10,5.
    I started the measurement in first gear, maybe I would get better results starting off in second. Not sure.
    The shop said that they couldn't find any other faults, and emissions are good.

    However, idle is still not the best. It's better, but not the best. The engine seems to miss here and there at idle.
    Should I fork out for a new MAF, or could it be something else? The engine does run better, mind you.

    you should do what you want to do..but starting to throw parts at it can be expensive.
    Still,,you should check short term fuel trim, fuel pressure, MAF readings,and exhaust back pressure.and double check for vacum leaks.Timing should also be checked out.¨¨

    But if you feel like just buying a new MAF...go ahead

    Best acceleration will be starting in 1st gear. 0-100kph in 8 seconds with wheelspin isn't bad, although it should be closer to 6 seconds with minimal wheelspin (see video below).

    Are your spark plugs non-resistor F8DCR F8DC4 (or equivalent non-resistor), gapped to 1.0mm?

    My spark plugs are not F8DCR, but I did get my spark plugs at a Mercedes-Benz dealer, so they should be okay. It is the spark plug they gave me when I gave them my vin. And it is a non-resistor type. I cannot remember the brand :/

    D'oh!

    Sorry - typo - I mean F8DC4, non-resistor. If they are dealer plugs you should be fine though. If they were not Bosch, they are probably the Beru equivalent.

    The dealer sometimes is not sure cause there is lots of numbers in EPC as per chassis for spark plugs.
    For my '92 500E they gave me these Bosch plugs with the MB star.

    The EPC typically shows 3 different part numbers, for Bosch, Beru, and Champion. At any given time only 1 of the 3 may be available. They are all equivalent.

    Those are the right ones, Bosch F8DC4 with MB star, made in Germany. Those are also NLA now, replaced by the Beru version (unless your dealer happens to have any of the Bosch left on the shelf).

    I'm 99% sure I got some Beru ones, and I'm pretty sure they're called 14F8DU4.

    Re: From Russia with love - but living in Norway

    So I pulled fault codes, since I bought one of those breakout boxes from eBay.
    Pin 7: code 14 (what is that????)
    Pin 19: couldn't read anything here, didn't even get one blink. Bad connection?

    I know the ETA has been replaced at some stage, because it's date stamped 02M06.

    Any thoughts?

    Pin 7 code 14 is "Closed throttle position switch (S29/3)". I don't know which switch it refers to.

    Pin 19 is for US only cars, so if your car was sold in Europe there's nothing to get from pin 19, it should be a total blank.

    Okay. S29/3 will refer to this.

    Is there a procedure to adjust the linkage before I order the switch?

    S29/3 is located inside the car near the accelerator pedal.

    Switches inside the ETA / throttle body are designated MXX/Y, for example M16/1.
