I just had to post this...to see the responses.
My father (and I spent most of yesterday with him at my childhood home, for Father's Day) thinks I should add some ATF to my engine to curb valve-side burning of oil in my '85 190E 2.3L. I was not very enthusiastic...can we say adamantly opposed to the idea of doing this.
Why would he even suggest it? He knows his wrenches...but he hasn't ever played with MBs.
