Your car is one of the best M-B's ever made and the 5 cylinder diesel is very sound. If you can't do it yourself, take the car to a mechanic that can work on older Mercedes-Benzes. Be sure to do your research for what a mechanic is able to do. Then have the valves adjusted, everything lubed and a thorough service completed. With 10K you can do a lot and should be able to bring the car up to specs if it is sound to begin with. It is also worth your time to research what a service check should include and give it to your mechanic.
The car looks good, if it is a good one it is worth a lot more than 1,000.
