I have a 1987 300D. I've had the car for just a few months.
I had a trusted mechanic go over the car and find/fix a couple of
vacuum leaks and fuse block short. The car is running great.
As I'm new to this car the transmission shift points are very strange
The car is in 4th gear at about 25-30MPH. Is this normal?
The engine doesn't shift down too often, relying on the turbo to pick
up speed - is this normal?
One final question. I have a large ford turbo diesel and it has a very
distinctive turbo "whine". I can't hear any such "whine" on the MB -
is this normal?
Thanks for any insight you can provide!
