  1. Its gettong the belts eats and the pulley off I wonder if I can do it vs MB doing it in an hour or so. $167hr isn’t cheap.
  2. After getting the Smart back on road with new Reluctor rings, oil, brakes, and a clean... I’m leaking oil out of the crank pully. I have isolated it right behind the mail pully.. anyone have this? 2009 451. Sat for 4 years.

  4. Agree. Thats why I hit the print button, double sided, enlarged all the pics and put in a plastic binder. You can. I will say, being in profession that we have thousands of tech manuals and weather apps at my disposal, the iPad is amazing for bright, large on demand and graphics and vids, 2 inches from my projects.
  5. Does your alternator spin freely? Not just the belt sliding around a seized or stuck ALTN..? After days inquiring, that was my issue. Broke it loose, all good.
  6. Chilton online. How do you get that free...? LIBRARY! I found my my local public library has a online membership to Chiltons. From that I can use my iPad from home and print. You up are welcome. Took me a day of searching.
  7. And She Stars ! Sam unit. Didn’t have one of the top plunges in all the way. Hence the solid key icon. Fixed with a reset. Confirming SAM can be powered off and not lose key pairing. Engine. Was told alternator was spinning. I looked at it again and it was seized. The belt was turning not the ALT. Used wrench to manually turn it and break it lose. She started! Now on to pop the drive shafts out, do the rings, and sell this thing.
  8. Ya 451. What is a Delphi Tool? I did did get new batteries for the fobs.
  9. also for 86$ MB sells engine servicing long bolts and drop the who cassette down. Why did I just find this out now... years later. A must if you like working on cars imho
  10. Well I tried the SAM, all looks good, and I did get fuel to the injectors. I’m thinking maybe I have a stuck piston. Will trippy to hand then engine over. About the SAM. My Batteries were dead in the key but didn’t think of pairings before I unplugged the SAM. Now on I have the Key display. I think I flashed the SAM in removing it. So now I have a dead and locked car, that can’t be towed and has no reg or insurance and MB is the only ones who can re program the car.. here is hoping the the other key will work. Ugh. I honestly hate this car now and wish in 2009 I’d bought another civic...
  11. Good stuff. I was at Princess auto and picked up a cool looking OBD2 reader that does starts and charges. Should be interesting. Thx for the tip on the ECU. Too bad you can’t get in to it and ground the Caps. In the Tube guitar amp world those Caps can kill people, so you always discharge to ground. Then it’s dead and you can work. Just St to be clear, it’s the pins that plug into the back of the fuse box right. Or on the fuse box SAM. Thx again. Wish I could figure out posting pics from iPad on here.
