    Replacing Mercedes MB900 Engine in M2-106

    Replacing Mercedes MB900 Engine in M2-106

    Took the EGR cooler to big city DD/MB repair shop and had it pressure tested and it tested bad. Will have the new one I bought installed (discounted price of $1100) tomorrow and hopefully problem solved. Only thing is I won't know until we get back out on the big road next week.

    Replacing Mercedes MB900 Engine in M2-106

    Thanks "SpongeBob". Right now having loss of coolant issue. Not my first rodeo with this. So far shop cannot find the problem. Not showing any classic signs of EGR valve, EGR cooler issues or cracked head or head gasket.

    Freightliner m2 tail lights out. On the road now

    Had the same problem a while back. if you have the small rectangular lights hanging off a bracket it was the connector (plug) into the light. Unplug it, plug it back in and jiggle it some in the socket. eventually will have to replace the plug.

    Replacing Mercedes MB900 Engine in M2-106

    Thanks for ya'lls replys so far. in my 800,000 miles had numerous egr valves and coolers, also head gasket, but no stud issues. Engine still runs good, minimal oil consumption, egr valve again about a month ago but now drinking coolent again so probably another head gasket or cooler. And yes...

    Replacing Mercedes MB900 Engine in M2-106

    800,000 miles and on borrowed time. Too **** old (me) to even think about buying a new truck. Has anyone replaced an engine or even got pricing on doing it?:confused:
