Red face new from Litchfield Ct.

I always wanted a 300TDT and found one right here in my local area about 12 years ago. I bought it from the original owner and it had 134K miles. It now has 196K on it and it is my trusty old friend. Last year I replaced the injectors and glow plugs and now it starts right up. Great car for camping, Kayaking and running to home depot. Drives like a truck, smells like a truck and is tough like a truck and is solid as a brick. Great car.
Six years ago I bought a 84 380SL. The guy I bought it from had it four years. He was rich and a good thing because in the four years he owned it he spent over 17 thousand in work on it. I have all the reciepts. Two years ago mice got into the air cleaner ate that and probably a couple of other things because now it does not even start. Last year it ran but not very well with no power and stalling just after start untile warm.
Lifted the hood and it sure is a puzzle to this old hack mechanic so I joined this forum to get some answers and have found a good bunch of guys willing to help. Thanks
