1994 Mercedes-Benz E320 Sedan

My beloved daily driver. Purchased in August of 2011, with a scant 21K miles on the odo, this was the lowest mileage W124 for sale in the country at the time. Even so, as anyone with an older Mercedes can attest, there was plenty of work that needed to be done. So far, I’ve done: Lots of fluid changes - oil, transmission, coolant R&R of HVAC blower motor R&R of HVAC blower motor New water pump New serpentine belt New valve cover gasket and related other stuff New spark plugs (indexed, of course) New battery New voltage regulator New over-voltage protection relay (a.k.a. “OVP”) Replacement cruise control/idle speed control brain (a.k.a. CC/ISC or “eGas”) box Replacement throttle body
