Greetings,

I heard about this forum from another MB owner whom I was speaking to at the parts store today.

I have so many questions, but I'll just use this opportunity to say hi and that and I am glad to have somewhere to turn when I'm working on my cars. I (my wife) have 2 MBs, a 1985 500SEL and a 1996 C280. Both are great cars, but need constant reassurances to run right.

I will share one "must know" with you all right now, my wife complained that the 500SEL would nearly hop off the road when she hit freeway speeds and she had to use heavy acceleration to get it rolling from a stop. I investigated and found the brakes were applying themselves after a few miles. I spent days replacing parts, one by one (two by two actually) bleeding the breaks, calling al of my friends and long lost relatives... Then she came clean and mentioned that she had seen the brake fluid low, so trying to be helpful, she added transmission fluid. This did not have the desired effect.

So, when you are experiencing a problem that has you completely baffled, and you've done everything any sane person would to correct it, before you give up and make it a planter in the front yard, ask your spouse what she/he did to cause it.
