Your thoughts on a random misfire.

I had exactly the same symptoms on one of my cars (not a Scimitar), it turned out to be a weak ignition coil which I tracked down by measuring the resistances on the primary and secondary windings. One othe test is do you get a misfire under hard acceleration, this was another one of the symptoms. T...

MB odometer accuracy

According to Google Maps it is 167 miles. But as a comparison I recently tested my modern car odometer against the tracker satellites over 4 roughly 100 mile journeys.

How to remove the Automatic Gearbox Selector Cover

Andrew, Attached are a couple of photos of the selector cover on my car (MB54). The selector appears to be in a similar position to your car and the surround cover simply pulls upwards, there are no screws or clips holding it in.

MB odometer accuracy

I'd be a little bit wary of relying on a GPS speed reading. I have a TomTom satnav which shows the speed and no matter what car I am driving, whether old or new, the GPS speed has always been 3-4mph slower than the speedometer. Bear in mind a GPS only measures your linear speed, it cannot make an al...
