Wink Any 300 E experts out there?

I purchased a 300E 1987 w/ 96k on it, I love it, but a few things.

the idle is slightly bumpy, I ran it by a european mechanic he said
something about a vaccum hose replacement.
> Second, when idleing, the temp of the engine goes hot, not red line but
almost, then cools right down when I am moving.
> Third, the oil lamp went on when I was in a few turns, i checked the oil,
it was a little low so a quart went in...does the 300E just use oil? There
are no visible leaks...and no oil under the car....
> Any advice would be helpful. Also some manual suggestions...

> Thanks

This reminds me of when I kept my 64 Bug alive......
