I don’t know if the OBDII thing had anything do do with the facelift in 1996, as all of the information was already there - they just weren’t making it accessible via the OBDII standards. We haven’t topped off from the drive back from Mobile, but should be in the next day or two. I’m

Given the choice I wanted 96 or later, but this was a really good deal and a super nice car, so I compromised. The likelihood of finding something as nice with a well documented past in a reasonable period of time was pretty slim based on my earlier searches this year, so I went for it. There

Oh one other note, 61x engines don't get the full advantage of  synthetic oil because they'll tend to hit 2% soot load (MB's measure for when the oil needs changing) before you can really extend the change interval all that much. Such is not true with 60x engines. Last I tested the oil in my '85

Leaking lines can cause clacking injectors, but it's more likely that the lifters are flat (overhead cam with bucket style hydraulic tappets). An oil change with new o-rings on the center bolt will cure that. If the injection lines are bad, get some made up at an injection service, they
