Wow that was fast. Thanks engatwork. I am the most worried about the maintenance performed on this car. Is this engine going to be able to surrvive long after this sort of neglection. It doesnt seem to have any major leaks, just some sweating around the gaskets. It takes off smooth but has a constant ticking or chattering sound coming from the passenger side. Sounds like my 91M5 everytime its in need of a valve adjustment. Is this sound normal for the Mercedes aswell? I have noticed that the oil pressure reads at 1 when the car is idling at a traffic light but it does rise to 3 as soon as I take off. My friends Mercedes with twice the mileage sits at 2 when idling at a light.
