300 D Turbo 1987 HELP is my engine Dead???
I have an 87 300D T with at 340,000 miles with problems on start (I do use the block heater which helps). It was bought from e-bay (I should have known) and has several problems: Smoke and irregular running on start up, Knocks up to 2000 rpm when warm (sounds tap tap tap -2-3 times per second), now it has died (I think the alternator whent so the battery was low) but I cant even start it again :( (I would hate to loose the machine as she handles like a princess) [B)]
(1) One bad injector (that would be nice!)
(2) Worn Piston
(3) Cracked cylinder Block (I have lost coolant - and the engine has the origional block which is known for this problem)
(4) little end??
(5) New fuel injector pump (it has a bosh with lots of yellow sealing paint on it at the momment)
so it looks like The engine needs to be taken apart - where is the best place to get engine parts??
