Mercedes M111 Engine 2.0L Specs, Problems, Reliability. The producer began the production of the 2.0-liter engine in 1992. This engine replaced the old one 2.0 l M102 engine. The M111 series includes the M111 E18, M111 E22, and M111 E23 engines.
The brand-new compact cast iron cylinder block was established specifically for this engine. Also, the engine got brand-new crankshaft, linking rods, pistons, and other parts. Now there is the 16-valve aluminum cylinder head with 2 camshafts, hydraulic lifters/tappets, and electronic fuel injection. Manufacturer produced a naturally aspirated engine in addition to a supercharged engine – the M111 E20 ML (supercharger Eaton M62). The engine has the timing chain and the ECU system Bosch ME 2.1.
The M111 series got some upgrades in 2000: strengthened cylinder block, brand-new cylinder head, private ignition coils with new spark plugs, connecting rods and pistons for greater compression ratio, fuel injection enhancements, the brand-new engine control system Siemens ME-SIM4. The supercharger Eaton M62 was replaced by Eaton M45.
In 2004, the M111 series was entirely taken out from production and replaced by M271 engines.
