Hi! Just got an '84 190D, with a 5spd. Anything about this car that I should know? I have a '91 190E, automatic, but this one I have now is a diesel runs pretty damn good. Just thought that I might ask for any useful info about this awesome little car. :) thanks in advance :p

Great find! Pictures?!

Be sure to do preventative maintenance, and this car will never quit running.

Well, you don't need to worry about replacing that car anytime soon :thumbsup:

Mind me asking how much you bought it for?

Increase torque and fuel efficiency be disabling emission controls. Just unplug the electric connectors to the vacuum switches.

Make sure that the coolant is not green type, but Zerex G05 or MB type.

Use API CI4, not CJ4, 15W45 oil. Chevron multigrade (not LE) is great for older diesels. Get a 5 gal bucket from a Chevron heating oil supplier.

Check engine mounts and suspension components.

Upgrade tires, audio system, battery to group 49/93/H8.

Excellent find!

Not to steal the thread, but, I did not think there were any emission controls. I have a 85 D

I has the pics on my iPhone, but I'm not sure how I can post them :0
Upload to PC, then from PC, onto here :)

You should be able to access the iPhone like a USB thumbdrive in Windows Explorer. There will be a folder called DCIM, and within that, another folder (there may be more depending on how many photos you've taken). Open that folder, change the viewing to thumbnails, and search for the photos and just copy them over into the folder of your choice!!

I apologize in advance if you already know all this, but I figured I'd tell you anyway just in case :thumbsup:

Now hop to it! :eek:

The body could use some TLC, but I'm still jealous of your engine and transmission!

Great fixer-upper buy.
