Just bought a old 1987 300E!
Hello all! Just thought I would sign up for the forum it looks like a great idea!
My previous mid 80's cars have all been Italian (Fiat, Lancia, Alfa Romeo) so alot of my experience will not translate well to a BENZ so I am gonna need help on a few things...
My car was stored for a number of years so of course most of the fluid needed changing...oil, trans fluid, brake fluid, coolant (I got all that done), After I flushed the coolant water pump needed to be replaced so I did that as well.
Here are two more fluids I would like to change...
What kind of power steering fluid does it take how do you change it?
What kind of Diff fluid does it take?
Are there any known maintenance issues I should be aware of on a old 300E?
The belt tensioner seems noisy (Clicky) is that normal? (considering the car is 22 years old) The wheel on the tensioner moves freely with no problems at all.
