@  FlossyTheSmart : (27 November 2014 - 01:39 PM) We've got a how-to here ( http://clubsmartcar....&id=4&record=32 ), but a video is always best!
@  TheBestJohn : (27 November 2014 - 01:22 PM) Looks like another video opportunity
@  TheBestJohn : (27 November 2014 - 01:12 PM) Better than a new one haha
@  FlossyTheSmart : (27 November 2014 - 01:11 PM) and it sounds like you got a good deal ;)
@  TheBestJohn : (27 November 2014 - 01:09 PM) yes sir :)
@  FlossyTheSmart : (27 November 2014 - 01:08 PM) I guess you got in touch with him?
@  TheBestJohn : (27 November 2014 - 01:05 PM) man Troy is an awesome dude
@  TheBestJohn : (27 November 2014 - 12:50 PM) found it! Thanks man. I remember he was a big help when I did the reluctor ring replacement
@  FlossyTheSmart : (27 November 2014 - 12:49 PM) http://clubsmartcar....&id=5&record=11
@  FlossyTheSmart : (27 November 2014 - 12:49 PM) Nope, It's Troy Wilson Automotive. Gimme a second
@  TheBestJohn : (27 November 2014 - 12:48 PM) cause I cant find a number for them anywhere
@  TheBestJohn : (27 November 2014 - 12:47 PM) awesome Thats house of diesel right?
@  FlossyTheSmart : (27 November 2014 - 12:39 PM) And by "it", I meant the alternator from it
@  FlossyTheSmart : (27 November 2014 - 12:38 PM) Troy has a parts car at his shop right now. You could probably get a good deal on it.
@  TheBestJohn : (27 November 2014 - 12:29 PM) looks like my altenator is done...
@  kdubya : (26 November 2014 - 11:38 PM) *posted a topic in the forum with pic attached*
@  kdubya : (26 November 2014 - 11:14 PM) Bought a galletto 1260 to remap, however the only options it gives for smarts are .6, 1.5 cdi, and a .9cdi?? Neither will read my car, anyone experience this?
@  Francesco : (26 November 2014 - 09:53 PM) Thanks! Told my wife a few weeks ago that's the only thing on my Xmas wish list this year! Sister calls me the Bad Driver Magnet
@  dmoonen : (26 November 2014 - 06:53 PM) Bought a couple dash cams, ps they're on sale at staples for $44. idiot drivers pushed me to the edge
@  turbomar : (22 November 2014 - 06:33 PM) Thanks for the tip lads! Going to Princess tomorrow
@  marchanna : (22 November 2014 - 05:57 PM) Princess Auto is the best! I live less than a Km from there.
@  Bessy : (22 November 2014 - 05:53 PM) Turbomar, Princess Auto has the socket for about $3. I've done 20 or so pairs of reluctors and haven't broken a socket yet.
@  dmoonen : (22 November 2014 - 09:48 AM) Yes it is Turbomar.
@  turbomar : (22 November 2014 - 07:38 AM) Is the socket size for the drive axle bolt to hub on the 450, 12 point 21mm?
@  dmoonen : (21 November 2014 - 03:41 PM) I think glow plug gets triggered by the coolant sensor
@  FlossyTheSmart : (21 November 2014 - 12:11 PM) I couldn't tell you for sure.
@  kdubya : (21 November 2014 - 11:39 AM) i played around a bunch, entered everything i could. i didn't see it anywhere. Is it something we know the Star can do?
@  FlossyTheSmart : (21 November 2014 - 09:52 AM) There are a whole lot of read outs in there, so you may have to dig around a bit, but that's where I would think they'd be.
@  kdubya : (21 November 2014 - 09:45 AM) k ill check. i want to make sure they are working. just a read out of temp
@  FlossyTheSmart : (21 November 2014 - 09:21 AM) probably under the "Engine" section
@  FlossyTheSmart : (21 November 2014 - 09:20 AM) Read out is likely under Systems>N3/9 (EDG control unit) > Actual Value Indicator, somewhere.
@  FlossyTheSmart : (21 November 2014 - 09:18 AM) As in, configurable, or just a read out?
@  kdubya : (21 November 2014 - 08:58 AM) Anyone know where to find cylinder temp (glow plug function) on the Star??
@  FlossyTheSmart : (19 November 2014 - 11:38 AM) classic
@  Mike T : (19 November 2014 - 11:38 AM) Hodor
@  evotell : (19 November 2014 - 11:35 AM) Saying your own name, I don't get it?
@  dmoonen : (19 November 2014 - 10:52 AM) Saying your own name evotell :P
@  evotell : (19 November 2014 - 10:49 AM) evotell
@  KurtMan : (18 November 2014 - 06:29 PM) Well, we repaired the wires and its driving fine now... I guess I'll have to wait for another slushy day to be sure. Thanks for all the help guys!
@  Mike T : (18 November 2014 - 05:24 PM) This happened to our dearly departed green car too and the solution was that simple.
@  SkydiverChris : (18 November 2014 - 03:32 PM) Glad to hear that you may have found the cause Kurt! Keep us posted! It's almost never that simple.
@  Francesco : (18 November 2014 - 12:00 PM) cost me close to $300 to tow from the Canadian border post at Hemingford to my driveway (80 km), and my car was up on blocks for two weeks while I tracked down and resolved the issues.
@  Francesco : (18 November 2014 - 11:58 AM) jurist? During
@  Francesco : (18 November 2014 - 11:58 AM) Yep, mine started acting up jurist a January thaw on a long steady drive through the country, then the car refused to move on a slushy day on a long steady drive on the same roads a week later. The slushy brine is both conductive and tenacious.
@  FlossyTheSmart : (18 November 2014 - 11:40 AM) That's probably it.
@  KurtMan : (18 November 2014 - 11:21 AM) So my friend with soldering skills is going to help me after work... I'm confident this will solve the problem. First slushy day we have so it must have splashed up there and shorted out.
@  Francesco : (18 November 2014 - 10:25 AM) knock on wood, no recurrence after two winters and three summers.
@  Francesco : (18 November 2014 - 10:25 AM) then wraped all in Tesa cloth harness tape ($20 a roll at MB, about the same off ebay)
@  Francesco : (18 November 2014 - 10:24 AM) Yeah, mine was the same. I repaired the wires and coated the whole thing in Liquid Electrical Tape ($9 at CT)
@  stickman007 : (18 November 2014 - 10:20 AM) There's probably corrosion inside the sheath due to moisture getting in

Yeah, $8.19 here. Not the best price ever, but if you need to do an oil change soon, not the highest price, either.

$8.19 is not bad. I am finding it hard to come by on the shelf in the US, where it is typically $6.99 or $7.49 at best anyway....
I once was found, but now I'm lost.

Appears to be only on 4 litre jugs, not 1 litres.London CT doesn't stock 0-W40 in larger size.
Smart Car#1... got 'Lil'Toot', a loaded 2005 Phat Red Passion Coupe mid-June 2005, and love it! License plate '75 MPG'
Mods so far are tinted windows, mud flaps, power windows mod, cruise control, dual cup-holder from a 451, MB grill bullet, LED side markers,
DRL mod, shortened RV mirror mount, big and bold 'Mercedes-Benz powered' logo, ScanGuage II, XM Radio, Brabus sub-woofer and Garmin GPS.
Re-mapped by Eddy in Vancouver on May 16th, 2011. New engine & turbo Feb/2012 (NOT due to Eddy's re-map).
Smart Car#2... got 'Show Boat', a 2006 Racing Red Canada1 Cabriolet 0n June 23, 2011. Plaque 'Number 1 of 10'. Actually number 1 of 4. Licence plate '1 of 4'.
This prototype Brabus Smart was used across Canada, and at 2006 International Auto Shows in Toronto and Vancouver. Re-mapped and OEM cruise.

I don't worry much about cost of oil for the smart car. Just 3 litres so we are only talking about a few bucks. Are we not supposed to use 5W40? Never seen that at CT.Did just buy a supply of Mobil 1 while in USA. At Walmart I paid under $27 per 5 qt jug. This for Turbo Truck & Diesel 5W-40 for our '85 300D and High Mileage 10W-40 for our '72 350SL. I will most likely also use latter in our '98 E320 which is now at 185k km. Could have got 0W-40 but even in USA Walmart, Advance auto etc also only sell in 1 qt bottles. $6.47 at Walmart. At Advance Auto they had a sale - 5qt for $28 with free Mobil filter. But they won't sell it to you for that if you don't take the filter! A 5qt jug was ~$32.00

I change it 7 times a year so it's about $55 or so saved, definitely worth the effort of buying them on sale. Add the 5 L of the home B 200 change and there's another $12. Yeah so call it $70 a year, cost of a nice dinner for 2.

Our smart has only done 10k km since we bought it. One oil change per year whether it needs it or not :) I bought 6 jugs of M1 for the other 3 cars. Probably a saving of about $110. These also each get changed once/yr.
