The Mercedes C63 AMG P30 with the performance package that is called P30 and you will get some upgrades that will give the car a even more sportive character. in my opinion this is a car that will not fit in the same group as the other 63 AMG cars. this car is very different. The bigger cars from E-class and up are more focused on luxury and comfort. Where the C63 AMG is more a toy and the performance package cars are really fast and really good but the comfort is less because of the stiff chassis but that is just what I like of the car. So watch the video
this Video is al about the 1e generation Mercedes C63 AMG P30
this car is powered by a NA v8 6208cc producing 457HP and 600nm this car has also the optional P30 performance package
this car was for sale at Passioncar.de this company is a specialist in rare young timers and classics or/and low mileage cars
here is a link to the website have a look for more nice cars
here is a link to the car
i really wanted to drive this car .
it is like a magnet for a petrol head
it is small car with a big noisy v8 and a lot of power
this car has the P30 performance package that included with LSD diff performance suspension bigger brakes in the front alcantara leder steering wheel and the speed limiter is up to 174 mph or 278klm.h.
this option was available in 2009-2010 after this the P31 package is available that is the same as the p30 but you got 30hp more and the engine internals where lightweight forged like crankshaft pistons and rods, ( the rumor is that the are from the sls amg)
on the p31 the LSD was optional.
The Mercedes C63 AMG P30 sedan weight 1655kg and is capable of a 0-100 in 4.4 sec.
it is automatic and connected to a 722.9 7 speeds automatic
in 2009 also the automatic is changed to a MCT so the gearbox is the same but the torque converter is change for a Multi clutch setup the get faster gear changes.
the m156 engine is placed in many AMG models and also in different numbers from 457 tot 525hp and 600 to 660nm
i really enjoyed this car and if you are in the market for a sport sedan coupe or estate this car you need to drive before buying anything else because it is just awesome!!!
don’t forget to watch the full AMG playlist for all the other cars I have driven
if there are any questions just ask
A pretty complete list of engine problems and most common can be found in this link to FCP EURO or below
Common Issues of the Mercedes-Benz M156 Engine:
- Crankcase Breather Valve – The crankcase breather valve fails in two main ways. The first and most common is that the diaphragm on the valve itself deteriorates. The other failure method is that the hose from the crankcase to the valve becomes brittle and develops cracks. Deterioration of this assembly leads to increased burning of oil, misfires, and heavy smoke from the tailpipe.It is common to have a fault code (P0170) that is for fuel trim.A general maintenance interval for your crankcase breather valve is right around 60,000 miles.
To replace your crankcase breather valve, it’s necessary to remove your intake manifold in tighter engine bays such as the C63. This job should be able to be carried out in about thirty minutes. Although some use this opportunity to install an oil catch can system, we do not see many of these vehicles suffering from excessive oil in the manifold or sludge behind the intake valves.
We have an affordable kit that addresses all of the components you will need to replace when replacing your crankcase breather valve.
- Oil Leaks – The most common source of oil leaks on the M156 are the valve cover gaskets, camshaft solenoid cover gaskets, and oil filter housing gaskets. Valve cover and camshaft solenoid cover gaskets should be replaced concurrently. If these oil leaks are left unattended, they will damage peripheral components such as the alternator, drive belt pulleys, drive belt, air conditioning compressor, and transmission cooling hoses to name a few.
- Camshaft Adjusters – When the camshaft adjusters no longer hold hydraulic pressure, it will manifest itself first as a noise typically at cold start and progress to noise at any engine RPM cold or at operating temperature. This camshaft adjuster rattle is most prevalent on the intake camshaft adjusters and is observed mostly on engine startup.
- Drive Belt Pulleys – All of the pulleys on the Mercedes-Benz AMG M156 engine are a plastic design with a pressed on bearing. Although idler pulley failure is common across most Mercedes-Benz platforms, we recommend checking pulleys for failure symptoms at each oil-change interval. Pulley failure will damage the drive belt, and when that happens, the belt typically damages the coolant breather port on the thermostat. If you let that happen, you will have to replace a thermostat, and thermostat breather line in addition to the drive belt components.
- Cylinder Head Bolts – Most Mercedes-Benz AMG M156 equipped models (up to model year 2012) have cylinder head bolts that have the propensity to break,allowing coolant to enter the combustion chamber. Early warning signs include a low coolant light, misfires, and a check engine lamp. We recommend all engines equipped with the older design bolts be updated. The cutoff for engines not affected by this design flaw is serial number 60-060658.
- Camshaft and Hydraulic Lifters – Camshaft replacement should be considered a regular maintenance task as most camshafts show wear failures around 100,000 miles. Wear occurs most commonly on the left and right intake camshafts and if left unattended, the cam lobe will eat through the hydraulic lifter. Frequent oil changes, using the correct oil viscosity for your climate, and including an anti-wear additive with oil changes are all measures we recommend to protect your engine. Additionally, higher mileage engines should have their oil sent out for analysis periodically or the valve covers should be removed and camshaft lobes inspected for signs of wear.
- Intake Manifold Failure – The intake manifold on the M156 is constructed of a cast magnesium alloy, contains an adjustable length runner assembly, and houses the engine’s twin throttle bodies. The center mounting plate that houses the throttle bodies deteriorate causing rough running particularly at idle.
