I was introduced to my 1993 190e last fall and fell in love. Love being blind, I probably (surely) paid too much! It is a beauty none the less. When my son saw it he exclaimed "El Presidente"! I replied, "Maybe of some tiny island republic"!
It had a shifting problem that was slight at first so I adjusted my driving to minimize the hard shifts. Then I blew a head gasket! It blew right after I replaced a weeping radiator cap. Am I just paranoid or is that suspicious? I had a mechanic do that job and now I am in this car another $1000! Now that is fixed, I am about to tackle what I believe is a bad modulator valve myself. I will avail myself of all the good info and advice found here. Thanks in advance for your patience with any dumb newby mistakes I am sure to make. Looks like good weather for the week!
p.s. Photos to come!
