I ran this by a mechanic friend of mine this morning. He seems to think you're fixing to be took for a ride unless Mercedes diesel injector pumps are just weak. He says drain the fuel, flush the lines, replace the filter, refill with diesel and run a small bottle of 2 cycle oil through the new fuel filter and whats left dump in the tank. If you do indeed have this much damage, the car was run a lot more than 300 yards. Maybe she sat idling at the gas station before taking off down the road? Who knows. But he says $6400 is way too much of a repair cost even if the pump is toast.
