They said its the "rocker arm" in the engine.

Hi everyone!

im new in the benzworld. i got interested in your site because i have my newly bought vintage benz, model 300D, from my uncle. This is my first car, though its old and second hand car, i learned to love and care for it. i think its a 1977 model of 300d benz. its very durable. its not overused because my uncle was often out of the country and its most of time in the garage. now its mine. i want to have the most of it.

can you please advise me of what shall i do with my newly bought vintage benz? Sometimes, when i press the accelerator, there's something that sounds not normal. They said its the rocker arm inside the engine. Im not familiar of auto problems. please advise me..

First, I would suggest that you purchase a factory shop manual. Just reading it will help you understand the what, how and why of everything.
