In the last week I have

Replaced the brake master cylinder and changed the brake fluid.
Replaced both front tie rods.
Changed the oil
Replaced the fuel filter
Fixed vacuum leak in the passenger rear door
Had the valves adjusted by a local Tech
Tomorrow, alignment and a new RF tire

Whew,,,,,,and I avoided a divorce.....somehow.

Thanks for all of the help, especially with bleeding the brakes.

Congrats. You are more adventerous than I am. I've been messing with tranny leak all weak and finally got it licked today after almost runining the tranny.

JCD,

If you're up to replacing the master cylinder and tie-rods, you're certainly ready to do your own valve adjustment. Why not?

Chicken

Benchracer.....I'm basically chicken to adjust the valves. Maybe I'll wait until Txbill gets his FAQ instructions up and give it a whirl. Plus, I do like to have an expert look at the car once in a while.

Turbodiesel. I went to your buddy Heinz at Roxbury Foreign Auto. He is great and runs a very good shop. Thanks for the tip. He even checked out the timing chain, etc and said......PERFECT. Glad you got the tranny leak fixed.

Glad you did ok with Hienz. He isn't the cheapest guy around but he's fair and does good work.

He's not all that unreasonable

He charged me about $110 for the valve adjustment. Not bad, not the best, but not bad. He does a good job. It's amazing how much better the 300D starts and idles. It even picked a little bit of pep.
