Have Mercedes Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello , so as of right now is the whole chain accessible ? Or just the part up by the head ? Is the whole front cover off ? Oil pan ? Have you already tried to start the engine ?
Ok , first thing I would do before I send the timing Info is to do a quick compression check. Let's make sure the engine has compression across all cylinders. This engine is a interference engine.
Ok joe. Just trying to help. I'll send the specs.confirm this is the m271 engine ?
Gotcha , well easiest way is if you have a black valve cover made of plastic or silver made of Aluminum
And vin number tells me but I need the whole vin
Nope that's good enough. I'll try and get uploaded tonight. If you don't hear from me then remind me. I don't like to not hold true to my word.
Yes that was for you lol. You said black plastic cover. That is all I need to know. There was only two engine options. Both 4 cylinders.
Yes that is the other one. (Still talking to you :) )
Oh man I apologize , I'll have to opt out and let another expert help for the time being I got tied up today and really am sorry , and I'll be out for the weekend. This is not usual of me so again I can't apologize enough. But hopefully another expert will help out so it does not stop you from progress.
Hi, post your vin number and I will look up the timing specs for you.
