W203 220cdi information needed
Dear Mybenz sifu,

Ill like to seek information regarding w203 220 cdi model, after numerous reading on w203 thread, most owners owned either the m111 or m271 type kompressor petrol engine.

I have yet to read any info regarding 220 cdi model, ill like to know if the diesel variant is less popular than the petrol model here? Is cdi a troublesome engine to maintain?

I have no experience owning a German marque, I'm driving a proton gen2 and family own a Toyota model. For maintenance wise it is rather acceptable for me, but how will the German marque fair?

Saw a unit of 220 cdi going for RM36k, is these price range consider reasonable market rate? I'm holding average executive class salary, it is qualify to own and yet able to maintain the car?

Ill be much appreciate if members here can help me out

What is the expected part replacement to change for 13years car and also the cost breakdown.


Thank and regards
Luke

Cant say much of the Merc C220 CDi asking price because in the limited Malaysian diesel market, it is much of a willing seller/buyer basis.

Assuming the body, coachwork, suspension and drivetrain are ok, then the only difference from the petrol powered cars is the diesel engine.

As you may already know that a diesel engine has to be built robust and solid to absorb the explosive diesel combustion, thus comes its greater fuel economy and higher torque.

For a used Merc diesel engine, pay special attention to its turbo. Look for oil streaks and sticky soot around the compressor end of the turbo. Turn the compressor blades with your fingers and feels that it turns smoothly without grinding feeling. Run the engine and listen for a whistling sound of an air leak. Test drive the car and accelerate aggressively. There should be a big surge of instantaneous power.

Others are like testing a Proton.

Hi Sifu Volton,

Appreciated for your feedback, even thought not much information has been provided for 2.2cdi. But general knowledge and knowhow has been thoroughly explained.

You got that right on the huge amount and torque and outstanding fuel consumption, this are the main two factors that draw me to find out more information about diesel engine.

Btw is the club still active? Where has everyone gone too?

Regards

Re: W203 220cdi information needed
Hi all, long time no post, sorry. So 55cent, you're getting a diesel mercedes for your garage, that's nice! I like diesel engine, it is frugal and yet powerful. Overtaking cars is a breeze with huge torque on your right foot. It is like driving a big capacity engine cars where the transmission doesn't even bother to shift down to get the engine into peak torque band, because most of the time you are already in peak torque band, hehe. If you ask me about the particular 2.2cdi, i know nothing. However, if the car has been checked by reputable mechanic and its all green, why wait? W203 parts are readily available, and lots of people using them too. Just check for any oil seal leak and the condition of the turbo. This car will literally smoke other cars on the road, because of the quality of our diesel. Some petrol stations are selling euro 5 diesel, you might want to check that out.

Btw, most of our gang here are bosses , manager and high ranking associates. Maybe it takes a while for them to reply, hehe.

Re: W203 220cdi information needed
hi there, its my first post here in this forum..

currently restoring dad's year 2001 w203 c270 cdi

just recently have it mobile after being left unattended for some years

being a mercedes diesel engine theres also not that many good opinion particularly here in kota kinabalu that i can gather in making this car driveable with peace of mind so to say

due to budget constraint i have yet to send to authorized MB workshop

so what i did was read as many information on the net and watch as many youtube video on hows to - diy et cetera

but then off course you'd bound to suffer from information overload ha-ha

at the moment i'm particularly concern with motor oil leaking ( at my sub-par eyes looks like coming from intake of the turbo )

- non turbo boost presently

intermittent limp mode, most of the time its okey, but some times it happens after left overnite, starts and drive it - no gear changes, so have to stop, shut down engine, restart and its fine

air cond not working, just blast of hot air coming out from the vent, have it send to regular auto air-cond shop, they cant find any leaks after putting in news gas - so they quote me rm3k for new compressor and diagnose , which i decline

had it send to another reputable air-cond shop, at first check compresssor works fine they say, but they wouldnt want to work on a mercedes

so at the moment driving it with the windows down ( its a sauna!)

i try to repair the non-working front driver door inside latch, currently only can open from the outside, with limited tools in hand have to invest in buying some 25 torq screw drivers, panels opener etc etc

already replace the damage front absorber mounting set, replace all four absorber but kept the old spring, suspension link and rubber bushing, cost rm2,268.40

some of the fuse blown, needs to change a few already

some far the car is quite enjoyable to drive minus the turbo and air-cond, otherwise feels solid and planted on the road

hopefully we can exchange notes as we build the cdi to its former glory, yeah 😋

ThirdSon,

For air-conditioning work, my family uses a guy who works from his house. He's somewhere in Luyang. Let me know if you want to give him a try and I'll get you his contact details.

Cheers,
Mike

Driving a Merc CDi without a functioning turbo is horrible. One can get a new Garrett (CDi OEM) for less than RM5k. If your recirc valve and exhaust system are (assuing the rest of the engine is ok) the car is great fun to drive with huge amount of torque at low RPM. Euro 5 will make significant improvement to the car's power delivery.
