1986 Mercedes 190E 16V

Auto Discovery 190E

Classic Velocity

The vehicle has made its journey from the temporary storage location to the garage. That journey itself involved a decision on whether to trailer it or not. I am not fond of driving any vehicle that I have not been able to thoroughly examine, except for a few miles as a test. In this case, I  checked oil, checked transmission fluid (boy that even sounds like a strange concept, even though the last automatic in the garage was a Mercedes as well - 230SL), checked coolant, charged the battery, and let it idle for a good while. All seemed well, so I drove to the gas station and filled it with premium ($50 ouch !!). The car actually drove back without issue and I called off the chase vehicle two thirds of the way back. It seems a little lethargic, but I'm hoping a tuneup will sort things out. With the vehicle safely in the garage, the discovery process can begin....
