New to Benzworld.

I have a 1985 190 E 2.3. I just bought it last month, and am currently bringing it back up to par. Does anyone know of any known problems if any?
Your help would be greatly appreciated!!
Thanks guys,

When I had my '85 190E 2.3, I had some problems with the suspension bushings. Particularly in the rear resulting in a "klunk" sound everytime I'd accelerate from a stop. Otherwise, not really a lot to report for stuff to watch.

The only other problem I had was my speedometer didn't work when I got it but when I pulled it out to replace it, I realized that the needle was just stuck on the peg at 0mph. Don't know how that happened but it worked flawlessly until I sold it.

Oh, and if you pull out your gauge cluster and notice that there's a bulb missing in the O2 sensor light, don't worry about it. For some reason, the early 190's always thought the O2 sensor was bad. If you take it to MB to fix it, they'll just remove the light.
