K-Jet or D-Jet?
« on: 27 August 2008, 03:41 AM »
Sorry, a stupid question. Can anyone distinguish from the image below whether my car has a K-Jet or D-Jet injection? The car's first registration is 6/1976. I know that the early models have D-Jet, which was updated to K-Jet around that time.

Wikipedia says that: "from 07/75 K-Jetronic"
The library of this site says that: "K-Jetronic from February 1976"

I don't know when my car was actually made.

Today:
1987 560SEC (C126)
Past:
1976 280SE (W116)
2002 E200CDIA (W210)

Looks like D-Jet to me and that is a very nice engine bay. :)

Good morning Samuli, Have you reached any conclusions? Is it a D-jet or a K-jet? Thanks Marcos

Hi Marcos,

This is a very old thread although I can say with certainty this is a D-Jet car.
