Cranky 300TD [1981, Chassis 123.193, Engine 617.952 ]
Any advice would be much appreciated:
I bought an 1981 300TD Wagon for tooling around town. The speedo broke at 275K, so there's no telling how many miles it has. Let's just say the old girl's had a tough life, but she's still kicking.
I just got new glow plugs and she was purring like a kitten. But this week all the electrical stuff works--headlights, radio, glow plug indicator, etc--but after the glow plug light goes off and I turn the key there's nothing. Not even a click or a chugga-chugga. Zippo. Just me sitting there turning the key.
Any ideas what the problem might be? She did this once before when the weather was really cold. Same symptoms for two days and then on the third day, she started up just fine.
Is there some component that could be that temperature sensitive?
