I have heard that some mbz's use plastic timing chain guides!? Is this true?
Does the 1988 190e 2.3 and 1989 560sel use plastic timing chain guides? My mechanic said that is does not matter if you change the chain if you dont change the guides, the plastic will allow the new chain the "slap" and it will be out very soon. All input appreciated here..
1996 E320

1988 190e 2.3 - 225K miles, owned for 7 years. I cannot say enough good things about this car. Very well built, even at 225 it ran like new.
