Follow up of repair of the Mercedes 2006 E350 fuel pump saga of Customer. Well Lou, it turns out that you were right about it being fuel pump failure. The problem i had was the fact that it was a 2006 california pzev car. All the time i thought i was buying a fuel pump for the left side, (about 6 different ones that didn't work i thought) it turns out that they were only a fuel filter, not a pump. Everybody advertise it as a fuel pump. Anyway, because it is a 2006 limited production pzev fuel tank, the pump is on the right side where the tank is sealed. No access, no hole, and no pump available to buy. I had to buy a new tank for a cool tune of $2200 and labor of $1100. So i had 132,000 miles on the car and i'm good for another 132,000 miles before another replacement LOL. I'm rolling now and i look good cruising down the blvd! Thanks for all your help.

, I have a 2005 Sl500 and I bought a replacement ABC
I have a 2005 Sl500 and I bought a replacement ABC (rebuilt, with 3 year warranty) pump from a supplier and had my mechanic (Reputable foreign car repair shop) install it. The pump leaked badly within a day or two. I sent the pump back to the rebuilder thinking it was faulty. He told me that it wasn't, but he agreed to replace it anyway. He stated that the repair shop should have tested other components, such as the dampers, before installing the new pump. He said something about a gage that is needed. I had him call my mechanic and they talked. I guess the mechanic doesn't have the gage I'm still waiting to have further discusssion with the mechanic, but I'm assuming he will want to install the dampers and possibly other components. I guess I'm just looking for verification to see if all of this makes sense and if I should be doing anything differently? … read more
