The engine is an OM606. This is a very good diesel engine. The only problems that I have seen with this engine are due to Government mandated emission control systems(surge on light throttle). Any engine can have a failure due to an inexpensive part, but it's 1 in a million. The fact that this car already had 130,000 mi. & the previous service history is unknown shows the importance of regular oil changes (not every 10K miles) like the 1998 svc. schedule.
