Brian,
It would be a help to probably several people (certainly me) to know the years, model numbers and bad engines (also by number please) of the vehicles/motors to avoid. can someone make up a list or a sticky?

Mr. Hunter?

Curiously enough, these seem to be associated with the tenure of Juergen Schrempp at the helm of MB, before he ran DBAG. Interesting.

Thanks!
