Really, this is one of those cars that has me really thinking.

Here’s more things I thought of?
What does cracking the injector lines prove?

It has 6 new (just about) glow plugs, but even with that in 30 degrees, if it had low compression wouldn’t the motor be hard to start? It went over the first crank and fired up immediately.

It has 6 new fuel injectors. I also realized I worked on this car not too long ago (local car) and remember driving it when it had about 10000 less miles on it. It definitely did not used to have this rough idle and low power problem.

1998 E300 169K - “the grey ghost” moonstone grey pearl
1999 E300 430k - project silver bullet
1999 E300 542K - sold, but I’ll buy it back!
1987 300E 120K - junked sat 20 years total mistake financially
