My 240D with a rebuilt engine is approaching 200,000 miles.
I just bought an 85 300D with 230K. Besides stuff like brakes, shocks, etc., what are the most critical maintenance items. Should i replace the timing chain? Is it mandatory? Should the Autotrans still be strong or be rebuilt? Is the Turbo still good or should it be replaced?
One thing I will probably do is change out the Alternator or at least the brushes, since my 240D alternator died at 200K
