Me again. I have a 74 240D, and I live in Columbus Ohio. It's gonna
get really cold here come January, and I wanted to know if getting a
block heater was actually worth the cost and installation headache.
It's gotten below freezing overnight a couple of times, but after I
heat the glow plugs up (and dump in some of that anti-gelling
additive), it starts just fine. And sadly, I have to leave the car
outside - no indoor parking is available.
Help? I posted a question about a parking brake earlier, and it was
answered really well by Alex Hemmerich.
Also, I'm thinking about restuffing the front bucket seats (I have
green MB-Tex, so I'm not going to reupholster the seats). Any
pitfalls I should be wary of? I've removed the seats before, so
that's not an issue. Thanks again!
