Soon after purchasing my E63 I noticed that on start up there was a noticeable rattle from the top end of the engine for a few seconds. The rattle isn't as bad as this one, but still a bit disappointing for a V6 petrol engine.Mine showed similar symptoms and having downloaded the XENTRY document and confirmed my engine number sat square in the middle of the range, I took the car to Purslows (my local main dealer) who booked it in and completed the mods as detailed in the document quibble free - all at no charge I'm getting no joy on this via dealer or MB UK, they are saying that my car is not affected. Chain when stretched becomes noisy as it runs over sprockets due to the fact its "pitch" has been extended , and it starts to eat the teeth! One a little while ago (cant remember what on) that only had 22,000 on it and 4 years old. This system had some issues with insufficient oil supplied for the chains, which causes them to wear quickly. I would like to ensure that the chain hasn't jumped a tooth. However, like all these things, I don’t think it necessarily means every such engine has the problem as there will be thousands of these models across the range. Thanks Paul^^^^ Tricky question that only you can answer but here is my 2p worth. They can be tightened but from what I remember, it’s quite labour intensive and can return. There are a number of used M113 V8 engines available on-line, but of dubious history and a new one from MB is £35K and by all accounts they only have one in stock Timing chain symptoms are pretty obvious, ranging from rattling sounds and engine misfires to engine failure and the use of improper oil. then one in which a customer had just bought his dream car, it was an E convertible but the engine size escapes me, only had 35k on it and again 4 years old.How much dose the timing chain work cost on a E400?You need to get some " unknowns" in this equation determined. The most problematic place is a two-stage chain drive system of the engine. Shouldn't such an obvious problem have been picked up during the engines' design and development process involving vast amounts of time, money and engineering expertise ? Shouldn't such an obvious problem have been picked up during the engines' design and development process involving vast amounts of time, money and engineering expertise ?In defence of your dealer, I doubt that it was a recognised fault when your car was just a few weeks old, but it is now. (Perhaps as stated above on V6 too). You must log in or register to reply here. What might that mean for engines with numbers before 157 9xx 60 009368? Timing belts were introduced to numerous cars as they are quieter than chain drives , not necessarily more efficient . The dereaded timing chain failure relates to the 1.6L/1.8L 4-Cyl M271 engine, which was fitted to various MB cars up to 2012/2013, so your 2014 E400 car with the V6 engine won't have the M271. Thoughts or advice chaps please. I'm getting no joy on this via dealer or MB UK, they are saying that my car is not affected. M276 W166 Cam Timing. I went back to my dealer when the car was just a few weeks old but they said there was nothing wrong. I hope it gets diagnosed and sorted for you asap.Here's a tensioner replacement on an M276- engine out of the car for clarity but its possible with the engine in the car.The final update off my E400 after a long meeting with MB from 10am to 3:15 pm is with all the repair work + service tyres & mot needed + the £720.00 for the engine diagnostics I could be looking at around 8-9000 pounds, so MB valued my car at the price it would be with nothing wrong, so i decided to buy the new E300 convertible as the deal they offered me was very good, I pick it up on the 29th of this month & will just draw a line under the old one, thanks for everyone’s adviceWow, they really have pulled a fast one on you. Thank you for all the advice, I’ve have just sent the sound off to a Mercedes technician & his exact words were “do not drive that car it’s the timing chain” he said he’s never seen this on a car this young, so my next call into Mercedes tomorrow morning will be interesting!!!

Any engine with a full dealer service history and at just 36K miles should be 'rattle free' , if its something you have noticed that just popped up one day and is still there err on the side of caution. MBClub UK is in no way affiliated with Mercedes-Benz, DaimlerChrysler or any of their respective trademarks. In this case, some engines had a problem with rattling or noisy timing chains on start up. (I went for the M273 instead). The M276 engine features an aluminum engine block with Nanoslide cylinder coating and dual overhead camshafts with independent variable valve timing on 12 intake and 12 exhaust valves and a new 2–stage timing chain arrangement. Yours has just started, and according to the MB bulletin for the M276 engine, 'no consequential damage is to be expected' (I think the Catch 22 here is that MB are unlikely to commit to any goodwill contribution towards the repair cost until the fault has been identified, meaning that the OP will have to take a risk on the cost of the diagnostic process.I’ve read a bit about chain tensioners (and check valves) being problematic on the V8 biturbo (M278) engines.

It’s an engine dropped out job for proper access and ease of turn around. I had to pay a contribution of £280 which I didn't think was too bad considering that it was over 4 years old and heavily modified. Mercedes want money up front to investigate the problem which will involve stripping a lot of bits off the front of the engine assuming this can be done with the engine in the car?
