Post New to Benzworld. Having Problems with My 190 E

I have a 1985 190 E and well I have alot of questions to ask. Im having a problem trying to find out why my oil is coming into my air filter. I dont have an oil leak and im putting up to a quart or two in my car weekly. If anyone could help me please send me a message.

Also, has anyone had problems with the propshaft shredding and the driveline dropping? Its happend to me twice now and well its becoming extremely expensive to fix in which it seems like its not being fixed correctly...According to the previous owner she's had the same problem but ive had the car for 4 years and now its becoming a problem...

Im filled with questions about my car so if anyone is interested in hearing more of my questions or have answers please message me.

Thanks

I wish could help you with the oil spewing issue, as far as the drive shaft problem. It is most likely not aligned properly between the transmission and diff hence causing vibrations and breakage.

Do you have a good MB mechanic in your area? Just curious, how many miles are on your 190?

Smile Thanks for responding

Well I would love to say that I have a great mechanic but its more of my pops and I reading the book and whatnot. I had a Mercedes mechanic but he wanted 1000 to put the driveshaft in. My father and I are certified GM mechanics so we kinda go off of what we kinda know. My mother is more into the european cars and she knows just about everything about Mercedes and Bmw but she's stumped.

I wish I knew how many miles were on my car. My parents bought it for my sweet 16 and the odometer has been stuck at 63k since then. Im thinking i need to start rebuilding due to spuddering and my car not passing smog.
To guess how many miles are on my car probably more than I want to know.

I just finished putting in the new driveshaft this afternoon and im not having any thumping at the moment. I took it on a long ride and everything feels fine now. I just need to figure out why the oil is in my air filter.
