I have a 1979 240d, with 200,000 miles, odometer broken.
Everbody keeps saying they last forever. Why?
How should I drive the car to make it last?
It is a daily driver, approximately 35 miles each way.
I find that if I push it, the transmission shifts good, the acceleration
If I go lightly, the transmission shifts into high gear at 35 miles per
hour, and it is very sluggish.
But, I wonder if really giving it the gas (diesel), will harm the car?
BTW, this is my first diesel.
I bought it in an impound auction, have no records, no history at all.
