      @Justin Nicholas I've noticed at least in my case that YT always seems to have their algorithm show me channels like this, that have tons of subs and clickbait titles, or misleading titles. Definitely won't be subscribing to this one either.

      @Si Raff I'm legally correct. If you want to ignore that fact, spend your money on that fake AMG he shows. lol I've been around and know more than you do about the subject. But I understand that younger people are stubborn and don't like to learn.

    Those CIS injection are aggravating been working on them since 92, what I have found will clean out a clogged fuel distributor is mix 1 gallon gas 1 gallon of laquer thinner and use that as the first fuel in it, it helps.

    That’s pretty sweet back in 1996 did some trading and got a 1986 red AMG 300e with everything had interior exterior and had the AMG cams in it.

    You should have replaced the motor oil before starting the engine.

    So your fancy battery jump starter doesn’t work? If you look up the Vin, it will tell you if it’s the 5.0 or 5.4 liter engine.

    The first owner went to jail for life, you should think twice driving his car anywhere close to his neighborhood. He may owe a lot of people and you can get in real trouble driving it. That’s my theory why this car was never driven for 27 years. It was a life or death decision. And it looks like he made a great decision to keep this vehicle out of the public’s eye.

    i hope you realize that putting 93 in a car designed to be driven on 87 will net you ABSOLUTELY not one benefit whatsoever unless the engine either is direct injection or you have an issue with your engine knocking. please share this with people, i’m tired of the ignorance and stupidity


    German car’s confuse the crap out of me. How are they made with so much quality but same time so problematic and unreliable?

  • Corrado De Luca

    Yeah. Sure. If I let my Benz sit for longer than 3 weeks (when I go away, etc), I find all bunch of new problems once I am back… 😁 Good luck !


    Nice car but y’all said it has no battery but the inside light is on at 1:55 seconds so y’all got lies but nice ok lol

    in 94 i started a 280S from 1969 stopped since the late 70´s ,only install new spark plugs and a battery ,only after i changed the oils. Mercedes were diferent from all other brands ,the only brand above was Rolls Royce all others couldn´t be compared and if we go back in time no car can be compared to a mercedes, i started stopped mercedes since the 70´s and not one gave me problems, not even diesel ones

  • Rui Cameira
    Rui Cameira

    i wouldn´t take the cover it could destroy it( the isolation) ,the valve ones

  • Rui Cameira
    Rui Cameira

    normally new battery ,speark plugs and it starts at the third rotation of the engine if not faster ,then a complete maintenance to the engine and it´s good to go

  • Rui Cameira
    Rui Cameira

    that engine was better built than all the cars at the time and today they run forever it´s the 80´s S-class AMG version

    Those wheels look more like those that you'd find fitted on something converted by Duchatelet...

  • pillayw126

    The AMG white springs have a different diameter than the stock mercedes springs. The set I have has a plastic coating on them and they are not painted. If you do a search on benzworld's w126 subforum, I have a post comparing the stock Mercedes springs, the AMG white springs, the period Eibach springs, and newly purchased H&R lowering springs.

    Please don't ever start an engine so long with the starter spray!!!! Starting spray is so dry it will cause damage ,maybe bent valves ,headgasket may be destroyed during this proces.

    Awesome Mercedes. My brother in law had a black on black 420 SEL. He bought used. The car was leaking at the rear main seal. It went through all the oil change between oil changes. He had to keep a case of oil in the trunk. Back in the 90’s it was going to cost 3500.00 for the rear main repair. He ending up selling it.

    AMG??? I feel like I see a w126 with some aftermarket trim rings (and caps) on the original bunt wheels and a body kit that could've come from a whole boat load of suppliers in those days. Does the new owner have any AMG documentation?

    I'm surprised they didn't change the oil before start up. No way I would have attempted to start the car with old oil in the engine.

    My Sister's Ex bought a '92, she never told which, with 45,000 miles. Sat from '97, when the original Owner got sick until '18. Dead battery. FULL tank of gas🤮. I told her not to even turn it over until they drained the gas. They didn't listen. Fried the starter and gummed up the Fuel Pump. New Mercedes Pump cost more than they paid for the car. Tried to tell them not to go through the Stealership but they didn't listen. Sold the car for a little less than they paid. somebody got a hell of a deal.

    This is a cool car. We wouldn't be luck to find one like this in the UK it would have rusted away by now. I did see a cool 280e on the Internet a few months ago it was an old 280e with the complete running gear and engine from a new c class AMG c63 . They even fitted the new interior including dashboard.

    Alex, 3 weeks ago i had an accident, i was coming back home late at night driving on the highway 200 meters away from my house when I suddenly fell asleep and went straight into a curved wall at a turn, i was driving a w126 i spent 21 days in the hospital, i was in a really delicate situation medics say the car saved me because the point of impact was a stong point in the car thankfully, this could have enden so much worse and could have benn fatal, the car is wreacked pretty hard and i want you to know your video gave me goosepumps because every time i look at a w126 i realise how lucky i was.
