Research on Idle Control Valve for Mercedes 380SL

The idle control valve enables the engine of your classic hardtop or convertible Mercedes 380SL to keep up with operating loads. It manages idle speed and air intake. A mechanical part, the valve can fail and cause all sorts of trouble. Your ride will not feel or run the same. The only solution in this case is to replace the idle control valve, but this does not have to be difficult or expensive thanks to online suppliers that have reduced prices to help you save.

Signs of Idle Control Valve Malfunction

If, for example, the 1985 Mercedes 380SL idle control valve on the intake manifold has failed, you might see the Check Engine light. A mechanic should scan the engine computer for trouble codes to be sure it is the valve. If the valve has gone bad, you will often see issues with idle speed, which can be unusually high or too low. You might even notice a rapid climb or fall in idle speed. A completely failed valve can cause the engine to stall because there won't be a source of air to draw from. In fact, the engine may stall as soon as you start it, or it may not idle at all. Other symptoms of a faulty idle control valve include noise from the engine or the motor turning off when you put the AC on.

What Is an Idle Air Control Motor?

The idle air control valve, or actuator, controls the speed at which a fuel injected engine idles. It is a mechanical device that is electrically controlled by the engine control unit. This part can last the life of the vehicle but the 1984 Mercedes 380SL idle control valve can fail prematurely due to jamming, dirt, leaks, or damage.

How Does the Idle Air Control Valve Work?

The valve works by bypassing air around a throttle. It allows air to enter the engine while it is idling, rather than the flow going through the throttle to supply the air/fuel mixture. Styles of idle air bypass valves include stepper motor, duty-control rotary solenoid, on/off vacuum switching, and thermostatically controlled valves. The type your car uses should be identified in the owner's manual and is a critical consideration when you need, for example, a 1982 Mercedes 380SL idle control valve.

Cost of Replacing an Idle Control Valve

If your vehicle has symptoms and a Mercedes idle control valve cleaning doesn't seem to be the answer, you will have to fit the bill for new parts and labor. This is not a repair any person can do on their own. You will need a professional mechanic who is familiar with the 1984 Mercedes 380SL idle control unit location and where and how the valve connects as well. A valve can cost over $300 for the part, but you can cut that down by getting one from PartsGeek.com. Brick and mortar stores often sell them for top dollar. Our low overhead enables auto parts and accessories, sold via a secure web portal, to be available at prices you can afford, so you can get your Mercedes 380SL back in top condition.
