desperately need advice!!

hello everyone,
my names mike and i live in banff alberta. i have a problem and i would love any advice anyone is willing to give. ive got an E300 Turbo diesel '99 with a few problems.. and im wondering if its worth it to make the repairs or to just try and sell the car as is. i took it into the mercedes dealership the other day and got some diagnostics done. they came up like this: i need to replace the egr valve and intake gasket. the fan clutch is seized as well. the turbo needs a new mass air flow sensor which i was also wondering if that needs to be replaced or i could go without it? and information would be greatly appreciarted any more questions feel free to ask, im a young guy and just need a car to get me around even for a short while and just would like some advice, thanks guys. Mike

Hi Mike, you have a W210 and there is a forum devoted to those. Scroll down from here to the sedans section and you should see us. The mass air flow sensor is not a big deal (very common issue and should be cleaned or replaced) and most of what else you mentioned can be done yourself with a few tools and a little time and patience.

While you're there, have a look at the DIY stickys (top of page) and you'll see instructions for the EGR valve, but I'm not sure what else that you need.
