Im not sure what you mean a time bomb?
I have a relative who owns a W126 Turbo Diesel with
over 400K miles on it. Second transmission, second turbocharger but rest of engine is all original including headgasket. When I worked for MBZ this was the norm for the 6 cylinder units (OM602)
These are fantastic cars with very long cruising ranges. They are a little slow but no one buys older diesel cars for speed or performance. W124 with OM606
engine are becoming hard to come by because people do not want to part with them.
