I have been to look at a 1993 190 Diesel (2.5 Auto) tonight. It seems a very clean car and I am tempted to buy it. There's just one problem. On tickover the engine seems to rattle. I am aware that diesels are rattly on tickover, but this one is intermittent. Is this typical of the MB diesel or are there any particular warning signs of a duff engine I should look out for?

I appreciate your help.

Should only be hydraulic tappets, i am having the same problem with a 93 300TD.
I will be posting questions relating to oil grade etc which i have been told affect these tappets.
