Diesel engine rings stuck? lol, i doubt they will come unstuck with anything less than synthetic in the pan. They are good cars, the 616 engines are bullet proof (i had a 240d that would use two quarts every ten miles.) the cylinders were worn Two millimieters, like ten thousants. the car was hell to start in the morning, and Poured smoke out the exhaust (you stomp on it anywhere even on the highway and it smoked) but that thing still ran, and when you got it up into the higher rpm's it ran pretty good.
Have you ever noticed that anybody driving slower than you is an idiot, and anyone going faster than you is a maniac?

As long as they would add one additional commandment for you to keep thy religion to thyself.
