[#2 If the car is using oil, check the valve seals, that is the second weak point.
I would appreciate your help in regards to the the valve seals problem; coould you explain it a bit more? I have a 300E/176k/'86 and it is now taking about a quart of oil every 700 miles. Runs beautifully and I treat this car very well. How big of a job is the repair of these seals? Larry Bible who has a similar car,I think had a similar problem or had them replaced. I don't mind adding oil but I would like to hear what you think.
