I have been a lurker here for quite some time, and appreciate all the good info. I just bought my second Mercedes an hour ago. I already had a 1999 E320 4Matic wagon, and I love it. I bought it in Portland and drove it to Georgia where we just relocated from Honolulu. When I got here I started looking for a cheap second car and found a 1984 (it is from Germany) 240d for $1,000 that had not been driven for two years. It is in great shape, and has 260,000 kilometers on it. I replaced the battery and it seems to be running pretty well. It is anemic in the power department, but I had gathered that from research before I purchased it.

Special thanks to this board for the thread on evaporator temperature sensors on the E320, it saved me tons of hassle and money.

I am a novice mechanic, but I have been around mechanics my whole life and really enjoy the process of working on things. Although my first car was a diesel Rabbit, I know little about the workings of a diesel powerplant outside of the basics. My studies begin tonight, I have six good beers and a fast internet connection. Diesel, here I come.
