Hello, I'm new to this forum and new to MB cars. I've been a diesel driver for several years with VW Jetta and Passat TDI. I'm mechanically inclined, performing my own timing belt and water pump changes, installing performance injector nozzles, ARP head studs, larger oil cooler, etc. on my VW's. I know nothing at all about MB diesels other than their reputation for reliability and longevity.

I am considering the purchase of a 1997 E300 D with 150k miles on it. Every manufacturer has engines that are great and also engines that are not so great. What are your thoughts on this one? Any "common" problems with this model I should look for? I know it won't have as much power as a turbocharged model. Any other MB diesels I should be considering in the $10k - $12k price range?
