93 190E 2.6 Rough Running????
I am looking at purchasing a 93 190# 2.6 w approx 250k miles.
It has been sitting almost a year and now its running rough the owner says... It runs rough at idle and hesitates upon acceleration. Could this be as simple as a gas issue? Maybe degraded vacuum hoses? Could it be an engine issue? What is the chances its something major if no smoke and runs well otherwise.
Also the AC works but doesn't blow, assume it needs a new blower motor?
Car was maintained in past had a tranny rebuild and other items replaced.
Is this too many miles for a gas engine? $1500 maybe get it less...
Whats anyone's opinion?
Thanks for any advice, what to look for, etc...

I think all you r questions are valid and it could be any of the above. What is the maintenance history? Click on my name and the statitics tab and you can see a lot of posts about rpm and vacuum hose repalcement, there is alot of detail there of stuff I did. I also had hesitation. Also the fan I would check fuses first. My blower never stopped but it squeaked a lot and I replaced it.
