    Does every freightliner m2 106 have a/c issues??

    I bought this truck 3 months ago and it seems like i replaced almost the whole a/c system. I replaced the condenser, the blower, the sleeper expansion valve, the in cab filter and now they say i have a leak but nobody can seem to find it wtf! Any suggestions????

    Yes. We had the same issue in our m2 106. Those trucks are like the worst freightliner ever built. All kinds of electrical issues also.
    NEW Ride!

    Same problems with the M112. Junk. Did you change the dryer?

    Very possible. Also, check for a crack in the high pressure line. It may be small. I changed the condensor, compressor, evaporator, dryer and the high pressure line. Not all at the same time.

    I hope you have a Cat or Cummins motor as the Mercedes motor is junk. Ours blew at 189,000 miles. Like other have said, this truck is the worse medium duty truck Freightliner has ever built. Bring back the FL 60,70, and 80's. M2 are junk and wouldn't ever buy another one. That is why we are going to Kenworths.

    We have the Mercedes 4000, 450HP. We have almost 582500 on it. Knock on wood, no problems yet. We have a Eaton/Fuller 10sp auto shift.
