Despite computer diagnostics that did not reveal any errors, right on the day of departure for a long trip, the car began to “make a head”. Sutra stalled while driving three times right at the crossroads. Turnovers floated.
There were thoughts "not to risk", to sit on the forty-year-old Merce and trust him, but a weak battery and common sense won.
All the same, 1200 from Ekb to Cheboksary one way in a Mercedes without a hydraulic and air conditioner is a dubious adventure.
We're going to Rafa.
As a result, there are no (well, almost) surprises along the way.
Along the way, the seal on the right headlight came off and the turn signal bulb burned out in the same place. The rest is smooth operation of the car, stable acceleration, moderate consumption of 9.2 BC per hundred square meters at full load.
Upon arrival, I made a couple more short trips around the city, fixed the turn signal, glued the seal. There are no complaints about the motor.
Back road ahead.
