hood

Where in Ohio? If you part it out I'd be interested in the hood. I'm in Michigan so I could come down and get it. Might be interested in the whole car if necessary. I have some extra wheels so i could car dolly it if needed.

I had that problem in an88 300E, it was the head gasket.

the shift knob and the all weather mats are not for sale. the car does have wheels, just not the ones pictured. the wheels on the car now are pretty beat up and the tires are spent.
here's what has been requested so far:
1. rear tail lights
2. hatch handle
3. climate control unit
4. hood
5. radio

another member suggested that i short out the temp sender and see if idle can be maintained. if it can, i may reconsider parting this vehicle. i will post result monday.

nooooooooooooo,
for $500 I will take it and even drive it all the way to Baltimore.
If you shorted the temp sender and this time it worked albeit rough, this means it's fixable!
Hey, I have a winter break after my finals on Dec 15 and I could show up, fix it and drive it away. unless you just want it fixed and then you will have to supply me with endless jugs of beer like in that picture.

I had a similar problem that turned out to be the ECM. Big bucks if you go the new route but pretty reasonable if you go with a used or rebuilt unit. I see you also have a 90 model. If the ECMs are compatable, you may be able to temporarily swap in the 90 unit and see if the idle problem straightens out.
