just bought a 1993 300D 2.5 turbo, very nice car. only 155K miles. my
only doubt: it starts up perfect, even at 5F ambient temp., without
hesitation, then runs for about 2 minutes smooth, no smoke, and THEN
starts smoking, not very heavily, but quite a bit, idle gets a bit
irregular. smoke and idle stay that way until it’s up to operating
temp. Then completely smoke free and smooth idle. Good acceleration.
No gunk in water. Valves are a tiny bit noisy.
