New member, old(er) car - '96 E320


I've found answers to many questions browsing this forum as a guest, but realized today that I may need to become part of it in order to delve a little deeper into repairing my car on my own.

I bought my grandfather's 1996 E320 when he died a few years ago. He'd maintained it well, but it was about to hit 100,000, so I've been through some serious repairs since I got it.

My mechanic told me that Mercedes made 2 models in 1996 and mine is the latter (he found this out when he gave me the wrong spark plugs) - I don't know if this is true, but he seems to shoot me straight on stuff.

I'm generally handy around the house with small repairs, but have never tried to do anything to the car myself. I may go broke, however, if I don't figure out how to take care of a few self-help things, so I'm diving in ...

Thanks to all for documenting your questions, answers, and suggestions.
