New to the forum!

Hello everyone!

Call me Hacksaw if ya like, I drive a C230 Kompressor from the year 2000. I like the car, and I am hoping that I can keep it in good shape. This forum has a wealth of knowledge that could save me a lot of time! I used to own an old '87 turbo volvo, tore the block apart and had it bored out and align honed. Ported the heads myself, and the turbo was the stock t3 (if i recall correctly..) that i ripped a larger intake housing from some junk Z car.

Long story short, this car hauled ass.... much faster than this mercedes, but then again my frankenstein only lasted me 3 years... Rear axles started to sieze up so I decided it was time for a reliable, comfortable, and QUIET vehicle.

Don't worry, I'm not planning on ripping apart the benz, it gets great mileage, its comfortable to drive, and its a sharp looking vehicle. Just letting you know that I'm kind of a gearhead and I've "been around the block" before

I dont know anything about my car when it comes to motor type or any of that. I tried to tackle an oil change today with no luck... And so here I am!

Happy new years 2009!
