Old 240 D Trick

Hi Shane and WELCOME to the 123 Forum! Find a good piece of cardboard and cut it to cover half of your radiator. You can slip it between the front cowling and the radiator. When you close the hood, you won't see it. In extreme cold, this will help your engine warm up faster. Don't forget to remove the cardboard when the weather warms up! This will cut your warm up time considerably! Hope this helps!

Maintenance Manuals

How technical do you want to get? There is a general service manual available at your local Pepboys or Autozone, $19.95. This pretty much covers the routine work. If you want to tear down and rebuild the engine, there is a manual avaiable from your MB Technical Publications at MB Classic. I would say the most critical thing to do is to keep the oil changed at 3,000 or 3-month intervals. Take a look at your glovebox booklet to see if routine service was carried out and by whom. Fuel filters should be changed every 15,000 miles. Take a look at www.performanceproducts.com for their 123 service suggestions and ideas. Many of the advertisiers on the forum can suggest ways to improve your car's performance.
