Hi everyone.

Just got myself a cheap rusty facelift R170 230k to play with.

I am currently getting to grips with it and trying to find all its mechanical maladies, which currently amount to:

Extremely overdue service (19k miles overdue according to dash)
Lumpy idle - worse when cold
Failure to crank over (only done this once. Worked 10m later. Possible crank sensor?)
Boot lid v hard to close without multi slams
Blocked rear drains
Pungent odour of a chain smoker

However the roof works and there are no error codes identified by EODB-facile (free version)!

I look forward to asking you all for help!

Welcome to SLKWorld.com: The #1 Mercedes-Benz SLK Forum from Valrico, Florida!

Some tips to make your visit here more enjoyable:
If you haven’t, please use the 'search' feature at the top right of the page for your questions as they have probably been asked before. Remember, ‘Search’ is your friend.
If you wish to become PM (Private Message) capable, you need 15 posts. To get those 15 posts quickly, just go to the ‘New members introduce yourself here’ section and welcome enough new members to obtain your needed posts to PM. You can always pm a moderator.
Want to post a picture? Start a new thread or make a post, click ‘edit’, click on the ‘paper clip’ or ‘advanced’ and/or ‘manage attachments’ then ‘choose file’ then ‘upload’ and ‘submit’! If Iphone pics, you need to rename any additional pics as Iphone names its pics all the same, image.jpg.
Want to ‘like’ or thank’ someone’s comments? Use the ‘like’ button to the right or the ‘Thanks’ button, bottom right of any post you like. This saves you having to comment.
New members should be aware that the 'New Posts' link next to the 'Search' link top right of the info bar is a great way to see all of the posts you have missed since you were on the forum last. Remember to click 'mark forums read' under ‘quick links’ when you leave.
FREE!! Post your vin in the Vehicle Datacard Request section to get a free datacard (options on your car). You must update your profile with vehicle info and your location and post an introduction first.

Thanks all.

I've been busy collecting parts and tools ready for some DIY action. Looking forward to some vroom vroom and less splutter splutter.

Signing out for now.
