If you have the original owner's documentation there is a maintenance schedule. The W201 is not PM intenstive. Basics are fluid changes - engine oil, auto trans oil, coolant, and brake fluid, plus filters - oil, air, and fuel.

Most other things are check this/check that and replace as necessary. I do all my PM, troubleshooting, and repairs (nothing major yet).

If you don't have this documentation you can probably get some copies from the local MB distributor or MB USA.
