necessary tools

On your 240D, one of the most important regular maintenance items is valve adjustment. Although it can be done with conventional tools, the designed tools (two bent wrenches and a spring-holder wrench) make the job a lot easier, once you learn how to use them.
Another good tool to have is a "pistol-type" vacuum pump, to check and diagnose the extensive Mercedes vacuum system.
The best "tool" you can have is a good shop manual, preferably one published by MB. JEG
