Hi

I there anyone in the NY area who would work with me for a day fixing some major engine repairs on my w123 and show me the ropes at the same time?

For example needs head gasket replacement, new engine mounts, want to take turbo off and diagnose its problem, transmission has a vacuum leak. That's just to start with...

Thanks!

No offense RTN, but that's more than a day's work. A lot more actually. Probably take several days just to round up the parts. Why don't you tell us what you've started with, and what you want when you're finished.

Hi

None taken, I'm a novice so don't have an accurate idea of what time things take.

The head gasket and coolant is the urgent issue. The part is easy enough to get, but I see you're in KY not NY?

So I guess just doing that could take a day?

You may need help with compression test, vacuum is extremely easy, like brushing your teeth
You need to know what is wrong before start doing anything to the car and spend money in fixing and troubleshooting what is not needed. Get this first, read and then decide where to spend the money. It comes with all you need to work in your car. You will be surprised, I did buy mine 3 weeks ago and I have done everything myself, I'm a Massage Therapist not a mechanic.
