New Member Introduction

New to the forum and sort of new to MB cars. I had a 1990 190E-2.6 years ago that I enjoyed but never really worked on; although I've had and worked on lots of other cars such as Triumph, Alfa Romeo and Saab. I've joined the forum because my 17 year old son bought his first car a few months ago, a 1991 420SEL in very nice condition with ~126,000 miles, and we've been learning to work on it together. Already solved a few minor problems with help from this forum. The car is great - has me thinking about getting a similar vintage 190, 300 or S-class myself - and I'd forgotten how much I enjoyed working on cars. And the 420 is not as daunting as I thought. But then we're still on the honeymoon. Thanks in advance for any help that I'm sure we'll be needing in the years to come. Cheers!

Hows the 1990 190E 2.6 been treating you? I just bought a 91 190E 2.6 as a project car. I am relacing the head gasket. Next will have to verify the vent blower motor and fuel ingectors are working properly. The car was sitting for 9 years in someones garage. Any advice on what to look out for?
