New (to me) '10 ML350 Bluetec

Following the loss of my beloved 1995 E300D, we were in a period of extended mourning. We have returned to the diesel Mercedes fold with a used 2010 ML350 Bluetec. I'm sure I'll bring plenty of...

Thanks! I appreciate the input.

We'll see if I can get there before someone else snaps it up.

PS How far is Brandon from Belton?

Thanks. I really appreciate your perspective. The re-statement of the symptom helps.

I didn't get down to see thecar today. We will see if someone else snaps it up.

I have not. It is almost an hour away. I'm making up my mind whether it is worth the effort to get down to see it.

I assume that this vehicle will also not have a transmission dipstick, so I...

I am looking for a beater to use to get to in and out of dove fields (my convertible was not made for that). There is a '99 ML 320 with 250,000 miles available locally for $850.

Thanks, vstech.

Insurance company is making it tough for a Mercedes lover to keep this car on the road. If I keep the wreck, it will cost me just shy of $2000. Weasels!

Well, if I had a flat bed trailer, I'm sure we could work a deal.

I would love for the car to stay on the road. I just don't have the time and space.

It was a low speed collision (no airbags!). Only me in the car, and no injury.

Friday was not a good day

Had an impromptu physics demonstration involving my '95 E300D. My priorities are no longer fuel line o-rings.

Sounds cheap. If I was set up to swap a transmission and I could find a good supply of 722.435s, then I could just burn through used ones.

Maybe I will clear out the garage and ask for more tools...

Do you mean one rebuilt by Mercedes? I don't know. I guess I have been under the assumption that Mercedes would not be the price leader in this equation.
