    Has anyone had experience with a Mercedes Benz 4000 engine? It’s in a 2005 Freightliner I’m interested in. Thanks!

    Worked at 2 different companies that had MB engines in Columbia’s. Not the most powerful engine ever produced, but like the Energizer Bunny, they just keep going, and going, and going. As for parts, its my understanding they are available thru most Detroit Parts warehouses.
