Hi All

Just wondered if anyone can give a little advice/reassurance.

On Monday I bought a 98 W210 E300 TurboDiesel with 159,000 miles on it. MB serviced up to around 100K then local garage serviced after that. Seems like a well looked after car and i've heard a few times that these engines are strong but is there any warning signs to look out for as this is my first diesel car.

Thanks
Craig

Rust is the biggest killer on a 210. The engine is truly bombproof. The only items to look out for is leaky inlet manifold gaskets, air in the fuel lines, fuel leaks at the pump, and rattling belt damper.

Is the rust issue bodywork only as thats rust free bar one stone chip on the bonnet or does it affect chassis badly too?
