#1

210,000 miles. Should I have the valves adjusted? What is best way to improve milage? What would a “Tune Up” on and old Benz diesel consist of?


#2

Adjusting the valves is one of the first things you should consider. When was it last done?


#3

While the is no vibration or shimmy in the steering wheel I can feel a “shift” of some sort in the front end when I turn a corner. Would anyone care to offer up a possible solution or diagnosis before I spend more money than I have trying to chase down.


#4

Have the motor mounts checked.


#5

Really? Would never have thought of that.


#6

You need to find a good independent MB mechanic, pay them to go over your car and come up with a list, then decide what needs to be done. 30 year old cars can have lots of things go wrong.

Thanks, Will do.
