There was something wrong with the transmission though, but I just traded her in, she was a 91 anyway...and I was tired of being teased LOL

^^ no not too much only when I say mum and about and of course EH! at the end of sentences. Most just say I speak proper English, my African American friend say I talk "white" go figure lol. My spelling is what gives me away..neighbour, colour, honour, centre...I caught hell in colleges in the us lol.

Will that help the 190's stalling and smoking issues?

LOL
Baby Benz is just sitting for now, I haven't touched it in a month because I am so disgusted and I hate freezing my balls chasing phantom issues.
I did manage to replace the engine mounts on the big mama and she runs sweet. I should hit 300K miles in the very near future: a testament of endurance for sure The only thing bad with the 560 a small leak in the steering gearbox, that's it

^Used cars are too cheap now to bother fixing the old ones. Just paint and patch and sell or dump. Then drive the next one until it seriously breaks. Leave that one on the road side for the city to pick up.

Remember: Cars Are Toilet Paper.

No need to break you back fixing what is inevitably going to the scrap yard sooner rather than later. Look at the big picture.
