1985 300D turbo automatic
I am a woman and learning how to work on my own car, so here we go!
I bought this thing about 3 weeks ago and have learned quite a bit so far.
Replaced the fuel filter and sliced my finger real good, so I guees I did it right since I bled! (my father always told me its done right if you bleed!)
Here is a pict of the day I got it home, I have since cleaned all the green stuff and it looks much better
So far: New battery new fuel filters replaced some vacuum lines, I think it needs more replaced
next: get the brakes to work right
transmission fluid and filter change
replace power steering hose and filter
figure out how to get it to shut off more gracefully (rough shut down)
....and get the raido to work (sometimes it works and some times it does not)
Needs new kickdown switch (tested to see if first gear worked and it stuck)
replace rubber mounts under air filter housing
anyone have any idea what that black plastic part is and what it does? It has freyed wiring coming out of it, it is between the battery and the overflow for the radiator on pass side engine compartment
think that should do it for now!
