Question My engine blew up... and Coilover HELPPP

Hello everyone,
Unfortunately i have come here to tell you all my engine has decided to lock up on me with 57,000 miles, me only putting 10,000 on it myself. I am already in the process of getting a new engine installed on the brighter side of things. But anyway, I need coilovers, ive decided in fixing the engine, I might as well fix my rubbing issue while im at it. I was looking at BC racing coilovers but saw that no one in the MB world seems to be running them, so I am now looking to H&R. However i have a stupid question ( being new to all this really) regarding them before i make any purchases. What does everyone recommend? and i want to make sure i can adjust them up correct not just down. ANy help would be great! Thanks all

At least a few people on here run BC coils. KW seems to be the best and what more people tend to run. I think it depends on your intended use for the car.

Tell me about it my friend.... With all regular maintenance as well, im just as lost as any of you. Im still trying to find the exact problem as to what happened, one of my fuel injectors locked up one of my cylinders and messed up the piston and leaked fuel all in the engine, I dont really have a clear answer yet.

interestng. Must have had the old version of the injectors. The older ones q1-3 were more prone to that happening. Most of the time though it doesnít end up in bending a rod. Just requires removal of plug drain of fluid usually good to go after new injectors. Did you continue to run on it mis firing or something?

So I know that the dealership isnít the way to go but thatís how I decided to go for the engine just because itís such a major thing, I wanted it done by professionals, by the company itself. Iím paying in the field of 25k. Itís unfortunate but at this point itís the only financially smart thing to do, many may think itís crazy but it had to be done, Iím happy itís in the works, new engine will be butter

I’m so sorry to hear about the catastrophic failure, of your M156. Anyone have a good 3rd party powertrain warranty recommendations? I have a 2014 C63 that I drive hard occasionally, but this certainly scares the bejezus of me as a owner out of warranty?

I had a 3rd party warranty through SDCCU, they only cover $3000! Like WTF.. at that point itís not even worth it, if you can find a good 3rd party lmk too because I need a new one, Iím about to just buy the dealer extended warranty when itís fixed because mine was bogus. $3000 is like a service... complete BS imo.

25k?! Wouldnít it make more sense if you just got rid of it? Iím sure you can get it fully built from a reputable aftermarket dealer. I might be wrong though

Did you have a tune on the motor or a reflash of any kind? The fact that it just blew up for that injector issue without warning seems troubling.

As for coilovers, BC's are crap. Go KW. But what do you mean by adjust them up, as in raise the car higher than stock? I've never heard of anybody asking for such a thing.

I had a eurocharged v7 on it, just like everyone else it seems like haha, Idk what happened to her, just some bad bad luck, KWs are just alittle more than I wanted to pay right now but Iíll look into them, everyone says they are the best. The reason Iím asking to raise above stock it because I have 20in vossens on her right now and I rub a lot, the car is practically undrivable with 4 people and I just canít corner or drive hard without rubbing, so I wanted to just go up alittle bit, so it gave it alittle more room to move.

its not the tune. Older versions of those injectors did that. They would stick fully open. Not super common but it happens. Basically hydrolocked the cylinder bending the rod. Op how did it happen exactly? Did you continue to drive on it. Most people it happened to did not end up with a bent rod or damage to the motor unless they ignored the symptoms.

right?? I would've contemplated suicide if my motor gave😭(just kiding) Hopefully the m159 internals prevent that. He is one disciplined individual i must say. I wish the best hopefully you find a good used motor for a steal.

this is why more m156 guys should monitor afrís. Hey man listen everyone gonna be quick to say headbolts and what not. Itís very possiable a injector couldíve malfunctioned, and then u washed the cylinders because itís happened to a couple of m157ís already. You need to remove the heads and check the damage to rule out coolant damage. My advice is run a afr guage next time because you wouldíve caught that your car was dumping fuel like crazy. A stuck or improperly installed injector can cause a severe rich conditon of 8-9 afr literally flood the motor

Or if your injector is not giving you the equedate amount of fuel you can even experience a lean out. Iím not experienced with lean outs because of injectors, m113k we have leanouts usually from fuel pumps. Another thing to check is your fuel pumps because c63ís have been reporting issues about them with high miles in particular w204.

Jerry went on the Oe tuning route and just advanced the timing a lot for v7. If you donít have enough fuel with that kind of advances timing it will be a nightmare. Story short everyone should be datalogging and monitoring afrís. Good luck I hope my advice will help you in the future.
