Tuesday next week I receive my first ever 1994 Mercedes-Benz E320
decided to go with it after seeing all the testimonials about how safe they are.
It will end up replacing my old honda accord which was destroyed after a KIA ended up on top of it...... (long story)
So far after test driving it for 2 days, I love it, drives great, clean, no problems what so ever.
1: the check engine light is on --- mechanic says they can find no reason why, everything is sound and working good, but they said that the sensor for it is extremely sensitive, and they wanted around 200 dollars to turn it off... ????
2: the gas peddle, is very very tight, is there a way to make it a bit looser ? normally it would not be a problem but if I'm going backward, or trying to inch forward, it's hard not to gun the engine! and wow what an engine they have packed into it!
Also -- any disadvantages to switching over to synthetic oil in such an old car ?
Hopefully it'll last me a long time, and I want to make sure it does
so any tips, suggestions would be very appreciated!
Thanks in advanced!
