Any Ideas? cheap fix? bad valve?

Alright fellow benz freaks....

I have come across this ad, and having a son almost of driving age this may be a deal I cannot pass up, but I just wanted to see if anyone knew a FIX that would be easy and / or semi basic on this one... I know there a few fixes that require replacing a spring assembly or two in SOME of the mercedes trannys, but I dont know about this a matter of fact, i cant even identify the car!! 190E?? i dunno.---Keep in mind I am very electronically and mechanically inclined. I figured maybe keep this old benz from the scrap heap and keep my "soon to be driving" son safer than a honda or something of the like.

Heres the ad:

"My son is trying to sell his car it is 1988 Mercedes Benz 4 door sedan small version car. It is white and tan interior all leather in good shape. 2.3 Motor runs great gets good mileage. Automatic transmission which is why hes selling it has a problem not sure what, he needs car to get back and forth from high school. It goes into and moves fine in reverse but wont do forward.. good car if you can fix the transmission cheap."

Heres the only pic for the ad.

any ideas ??
