Turbo Engine Replacement

7 posts in this topic

Hi all

Recently, my CLA 200 ride, check engine light came on in the morning when I started the car. I sent in to a workshop for diagnosis and they said was timing gear issue. They told me to go to C&C and check to confirm. That same day, in the afternoon, the check engine light went away.

Anyhow, the next day, I still send in my car to C&C. Even though the check engine light was gone, I thought the fault code will still be in the memory. C&C told me to replace the turbo engine. They couldn't find any issue with the camshaft or timing gear.

My mileage is about 61,000km. Need some advice when the turbo engine and timing gear should be changed. Any symptoms to take note.

Thank you.

You mean the turbocharger unit and not the engine?

Send to a reliable workshop for a diagnostic check for 2nd opinion.

My previous W212 turbo unit was replaced around 180,000 km.
