87 190e 2.3 questions

my mom recently bought a 190 and i have a few questions. i ordered a timing chain and air filter from fastlane and when i ordered it it didnt promp me for an engine range. how do i tell what engine i have? on my 300sd the numbers are on the side of the head. where are they on the 190? i know the air filter is wrong but i dont know on the chain. my other question is, when i first start it it takes several cranks to start and sometimes dies. i recently did an fi service,spark plugs, and i have a fuel filter for it i just need to find the time. any info would be greatly appreciated.

have no worries.....President Obama swears "If you like your gun, you can keep it

Do a search here. Your questions I think has been answered before. Your engine is an M102.

All those 2.3 engines are pretty much the same. Unless you have a gray market. They usually have a 2.0 engine. If you want to get all the specifics on your engine, call the Benz dealer, talk to parts, give them the vin #, and they can give you all the information. Not only that, but they can give you the complete service history that has been done at any Mercedes dealer. Dont bother looking for an engine number, just call the dealer. By the way, if you have never changed a timing chain, I recommend that you find a shop that can do it for you. It is an easy job, but if you are not familiar with the workings of, and timing marks, that should be left to someone who does. When we get a car in from another shop or a do-it-yourselfer, we start charging by the hour, and the flat rate book goes out the window. Hope this helps.
