Hello from Sebastian, Florida!


My name is Brad. I just purchased a 1993 400 SEL for $900.00 . Body is in real nice shape. Interior is in pretty nice shape with two seams that have busted about 2 inches. Tires were in need of replacing, so I just did that and now I have to replace the passenger side front upper control arm. Car runs great, but hesitates around 1500 rpm after it warms up. From the info I have gotten on this site, everything points to the MAF so I will clean that first before replacing it. The accumulators in the back seem to be bad also as there is a loud thump when I go over bumps so I will tackle this issue also. Other than that, I currently own a 1986 420 SEL, 1977 450 SL, and a 1984 300 D that has 304,000 miles on it and runs like it was new. I love these MB's as they are relatively easy to work on and, because of ebay and craigslist, very affordable to replace parts. With these two venues and all the help and knowledge that I have gotten on this forum as well as "the other one", I have a new hobby, which is working on my cars every chance I get. I would like to thank all of you that have helped me in the past with your "Post" and to all that will help me in the future. Thank you, all!
