Old diesel project!

1976 Mercedes 240D

Car lost compression and will not start. Selling now for $1000. May still be interested in trades.

1976 W115 Diesel
Power sunroof
Good Tires
New Filters
Valves Adjusted
New Battery
Car runs good, just is slow. Odometer reads 24K miles. Its not perfect or a show car, but is solid and would make a fun cruiser. Interior is in ok condition, but needs carpet. Car comes with some extra parts. Open to trades for other vehicles, or cash offers. Call/Text 304.932.8951

How does an engine just lose compression?

Have you done a compression test?

Did you scrape the oil pan off and lose all the oil...
