The min/max function is available on some DVMs but it's a poor man's test for those of us that don't have ready access to a load tester. I would take it to Autozone and have it load tested there....

This also sounds like what I'm experiencing. If I'm on the brakes harder it feels like a lightly warped disc but at a frequency much higher than I'm used to. Also vibrates going around curves and...

OK, try arguing this with the dealership.

600K is impressive. My brother-in-law also had good luck with an older MB. He also had over 300K on his Toyota Avalon before he traded for an 1st Gen X3.

Duke - thanks for the maintenance history. It's like looking in a crystal ball. Looks like the water pump only lasts around 60K so I guess I have 57K left on mine.

Interesting to note that you did...

Battery gets mentioned so much that, with the age of his vehicle, I considered it, too. But, the fact that it runs seems to indicate the charging system and battery are good. :dunno:

Curious - you say you replaced the transmission and converter a year ago, at approximately 240K miles I'm guessing.

Had you done any maintenance to it prior? Change fluid?

Glad you got it fixed and will make it to 300K. How much was the injector?

Did anyone pull any codes?

Definitely get the symptom documented with a dealership before your warranty expiration to help protect you if the problem gets worse later.

Yeah, I hear ya. The stitches are still healing on my wallet, too. Having a warranty seems to really enhance the ownership experience. Wish I had one. Have you requested Goodwill support?
