I never thought I would ever own a Mercedes but, with a little luck I have found true love. I found this stunning 560SEC that needs a little TLC and now I am truly in love. I know very little about these fine autos. I do most of my own mechanical work so this will be a learning experience also.
I have already heard quite a bit about maintenance items and I must admit I'm more than a bit confused. My 560SEC has 240,000 KMs on it and I'm being told that one of the first things to do is change the timing chain and tensioner. Now this beauty runs good so the question is how often does the timing chain break.
I would truely appreciate any help/advice anyone can give me about this and any other things I should be aware of.
