1980s vintage 2.0L diesel engine in North America
As I mentioned in a previous post, I am now the happy owner of a 1984 190D, a gift from my parents. They had it built in Stuttgart, and imported it to North America. It has the 2.0L diesel engine, not the 2.2L that was imported into NA.
Does anyone know the difference between these engines? In particular parts interchangeability?
Right now I am looking at replacing glow plugs and glow plug relay, and I need to know if there's a separate timer/temp sensor/whatever for the glowplugs.
The glow plugs do not turn off when they should (at least the idiot light stays on) long after the glow plugs should turn off.
What with Canadian winter coming, I need to be able to start this car.
