A few days ago, my automobile entered a state of reduced power due to a malfunction. To resolve the issue, I performed a deletion of the input port shut off motor to remove the problem. Considering that I recently conducted extensive repair on the manifolds and connections, which were functioning well, I believe it would be prudent to replace the defective motor.
Furthermore, I have observed that the vehicle exhibits less responsiveness at low speeds and the gear shifts seem to be somewhat inaccurate. I am uncertain whether it is just my perception, but I am unable to cease contemplating the notion that I should bravely confront the situation and go with the replacement of the motor. Is this a prudent decision or am I being too particular? I am aware that the task is challenging, but I am certain that I can do it alone. The only obstacle preventing me from proceeding is the exorbitant cost of the motor. I am curious to know the prevailing opinion on this subject.

I have been using the resistor for an extended period of time. Initially, I saw a minor enhancement in engine braking when releasing the pedal. However, other from that, I have not seen any other changes. Based on my limited comprehension, I believe there could be two potential problems that might impact the intake motor.
1) The swirl flaps are becoming stuck due to the accumulation of debris in the intake manifolds, necessitating their removal and cleaning to prevent further occurrences.
2) The oil spilling from the orange turbo intake seal has caused damage to the inlet motor.
If your issue pertains to point 1, replacing the intake motor will not provide a solution.
If the issue is related to point 2, it may provide temporary assistance until the inlet ports get clogged in the future.
Do you have both 1 and 2 occurring simultaneously?
If all components are functioning well, it is advisable to retain the resistor.

If there were to be a future occurrence of an oil cooler seal leak, it would need the removal of the intake manifolds for cleaning purposes.
Currently, I am considering replacing the inlet motor. However, whether or not I will still own the vehicle at that time remains uncertain.

The flaps being kept open is the only cause of it. Poor combustion that may or may not be beneficial for your DPF.

 

The optimal approach is to rectify it thoroughly. Disregard the bodgers.

The price of £200 for the motor is acceptable. Labour prices for MB vehicles are accessible to all customers prior to purchasing an MB vehicle.
"Proper maintenance is not an expense, but rather an investment that yields returns." That is an MB strapline.

Apologies for the delayed response. I have successfully replaced the oil cooler seals, installed new flap linkages and cleaned the intakes. As a result, I believe that in order to restore my car to its original condition, it would be necessary to replace the engine. I have come across advertisements for engines priced at 170 pounds. However, I anticipate that the installation process, particularly the linkage connections, may pose some challenges. Therefore, it is something I need to carefully consider. My vehicle does not have a diesel particulate filter (DPF).
