Post Another newbie.

Hi I own a 1991 Mercedes Benz w124 300e and it simply is the best car I ever owned. Previously I owned a 2001 c180, also a superb car.

I suspect that my current car may have worn valve stem seals. When I commute in town it won`t idle after the third start. I was stuck in traffic recently and it idled for more than an hour, after that I switched it off for a few minutes and when I stared the engine again, it didn`t want to idle. I noticed white smoke when I restarted and revved it to 3 thousand.

There was quite a bit of smoke and it didn`t want to idle for another few kilometers. Can anyone suggest possibilities?

Thank you in advance.
