:D Greetings all...I just inheireted this 1990 300sel and am new to
MB. It has almost 300k miles. It runs great with the exception of it
overheating, the gauge goes up to 110-120. It only does this when I
am driving in town (stop & go traffic). It does not do this while
driving on the highway. I have noted that the one fan (in front of
the radiator) does not run at all, could this have something to do
with it? I am also wondering about the oil pressure, I can squeeze
the upper radiator hose as if it is a balloon. If I replaced this
hose could it alleviate this problem?
Although it is minor at this point does anyone know the radio code???
PS: As I said earlier I inheireted this car. The body and exterior
are in excellent shape & I love the ride of this car, but would I be
better off just getting rid of it? Basically what I’m asking is this
going to be a "money-pit"? I realize that MB can be expensive to
maintain. :D :?:
