Nice car, good price!

The brake problem is because you need a new master cylinder...

Does look like there is or was a wvo system....would suggest removing it all and if there isn't a second tank in the car....plan on removing the fuel tank to clean the gunk out and replace the tank screen....new filters, new injectors too....do a diesel purge to help remove the gunk from the fuel system...or run b100 biodiesel...

The vacuum box on the valve cover is factor....it controls the egr and transmission.... The egr can be disabled but you still need part of it to operate the transmission..

Probably needs a valve adjustment too....start reading articles on service on this site...

Our best saying....there is no such thing as a cheap Mercedes.....prepare to spend a lot of time on this car and watch the car eat 2k in parts in a matter of minutes...
