My first Benz after growing up with them

Growing up my Step-Father always had Mercedes diesels. During my formative years he had a 7x and 82 240D. He had a 85 300D turbo diesel that I remember test driving with him as a young teen. He put it on the road before he sold the 240D so that I could take it to my high school prom. He then had a 9x 350 SDL and most recently a 2000 E320, his first gaser. I spent many a Saturday morning as a kid learning how to change oil, brakes and other basic maintenance. I learned everything I know about cars from him.

This past summer he passed away. I was helping my Mother get the car ready for sale but couldn't bring myself to let it go. The last thing I need is another but as of today I am the owner of his 2000 E320:

Thanks to the How To's I've already done the following:
  • bought a transmission dip stick
  • changed transmission fluid & filter (Valvoline MaxLife)
  • changed coolant (Zerex G-05)
  • changed gear oil in rear diff

I still need to "fix the pixels" on the display, flush the brake fluid, and change the oil in a few thousand miles.
