Talking Very Happy Diesel

well i just finished my first valve adjustment in my 240D and wow what a difference. the car is so quiet and smooth at idle i almost think its not running while i was at it today i changed the oil to the rotella synthetic... i still have the tranny fluid, rear diff fluid and both fuel filters to change then i would drive the car anywhere

Awesome! Valve adjustments are one of those nice instant gratification jobs... and it doesn't cost any money!

You ever get your glow plugs working?

no its still on the list... i did determine that none of them are working and the car still starts up just fine... I'm assuming that is a sign of excellent compression
