New Benz Mechanic

Hello, My son pruchased a well used (200,000 miles) 190E almost 2 years ago for $1600. Says he loves the car and he doesn't say that about many things. There are lots of little things wrong with it but it drives great. Working on it is like working on the Exon Valdez because of a bad seal somewhere but it always passes emissions control inspections. This being the first German car in the family requires me to learn a whole new set of trouble shooting techniques. My older son bought a 93 Saab...same story. Before long I will have the automotive world covered.
