I picked up a 1985 380SL with (115k miles) and because my normal bent is toward FORDS I have quite a few questions. I had a non-Merc Mechanic check the car out prior to purchase and he noted a few expensive repairs.
The first is the replacement of a leaking Oil Pan Gasket. Parts-$55.00 Labor-$1480.00 Ouch. Reasonable? Why (not snide just curious)
Replace "Secondary Air Injection Pump" Parts-$695.00 Labor-$350.00
Reasonable? I'm a carburator man in a FI world, is this real?
For these two repairs I can put a new small block together... Ok OK my wife loves the car and I love her so help me solve this!
