You only need that for cold weather. If you can spin the motor a couple times you can theoretically run it without any electronics

True. In fact, the way that a diesel engine shuts off is by stopping the flow of fuel. I had a 85 model MB 300D. That engine ran like a sewing machine with over 300K miles on it

Now my son has it and is going to likely junk it. I would sort of like to have the engine out of it and mate it to a big ol' generator that could run my entire house in the event of a power failure.

Not to be picky, but if your 300D was a sedan, it was not a 300TD, which is the wagon. I've owned a couple W123 models ... they're boats, but bulletproof and easy to work on. Theoretically, you could drive one without a working alternator or even a battery. The fuel injection and pump are totally mechanical.



My wife had one of these when we got married. The 5-speed wasn't bad, but I remember that the hand brake button shot out of the handle when I tried to use it. AMC also used two different oil filter fittings on the engine, SAE and metric. If you bought a filter at a parts store without knowing that, you ran the risk of having the filter blow off while you were driving down the road. A lot of Alliances died that way. Too bad -- the car had some great French touches, like the horn button on the turn signal lever, and terrific seats. Build quality was typical AMC, tho.
300TD as in turbo Diesel that's why I said sedan not to confuse anyone. But I see that didn't work.
I should have just said 300d Turbo diesel.

Yessir you can run those cars through a brick wall and it will still keep going.
Only bad part about it was the trans was slipping. After a while you had to manually up shift and down shift to get her moving.

Correctamundo.

After the old diesel engines of the early-mid eighties, though, Mercedes started using electronics in their diesel engines' fuel management. The cars became less thirsty (the old model 617 diesels got only mid-20s for mpg) but durability fell off too.

I've been checking out the Benz Bluetec diesels -- 37 mpg on the highway in a big car. But the engines are complex and seem to be designed to discourage shadetree work of any kind. I'd much rather work on an M60.

No worries. I read it anyway. Again I should have said 300d turbo diesel not 300td.

Blame my getting used to using acronyms on the forums.

Nope. MB started the turbo diesels before 92.

My typo. I meant to say 82. In fact, I think that a few 81s had it. Oh well.

On deciding to edit my post, yeah, I just didn't want to appear to come off like you know who And... it's getting way off topic and hijacking OP's thread. Sorry OP.

I often visit an MB forum with a large volume of postings from people who still have the old W123 diesels as daily drivers. One guy's signature says he's "rogue T intolerant."

I'd be sorely tempted if I happened upon a nice MB W115 chassis 300d (1975-76) with a stick shift. That model was a much better handler than the W123, IMO.

My first BMW was a 1991 735i. I knew nothing about BMWs when I bought it and as it turned out, it had a lot of gremlins that I later found out were typical for the 7 series. Just too many bells and whistles. But Ö.. I was hooked on BMW from that point on.

My next one was my first 92 model E34 525i in silver. I loved the color because it hid dirt so well. I got 256K miles out of it before reverse went out on the transmission. I immediately fell in love with this car and this is where my long term love affair with the E34 started.

My 95 325is E36 was next. It was a nice little car. It was quicker than my E34Sold her with 241K and running strong after the DME swap. The transmission was also shifting perfectly when I sold it. The interior did is share of falling apart though.

Next I got a 2001 528i E39. The car was much more refined that the E34, but it to had a history of too many electrical gremlins. The main reason I sold it was because I did not trust the transmission. I got it with 120K miles, but it had the ďlifetimeĒ transmission fluid that I just didnít trust. Too many people said that once it got to about 125K, it should not be changed. The main thing is that it would shift into OD at about 35-40 mpg. This sucked for driving around town. I could be doing 35 in town and need to accelerate the least little bit and it would downshift. My E34 doesnít shift into overdrive (or perhaps it is torque converter lockup) until about 53 mph, so I donít get all of that downshifting in town.

I just wasnít happy with the E39 and my heart pined away for another E34. I found my current 92 525i with 85K original one owner miles. I paid a premium for it, but it was worth it because I havenít had a lot of the nagging problems that a lot of people have.

And so, the lover affair continues.
My first e34 535 was a 91 and trans went out at 375,000mi. I just got another e34 about 2 months ago and really wishing I would have waited to find a e30. A e30 is one of the most fun cars to drive. And they are built like tanks!! I think the e34 is going up for sale after fest this weekend.

With how gas prices used to be I missed that old dog.
Probably will get the wife a w124 touring. I've seen 2 for sale in my area.

One is a Clean older adult owned white with grey rockers/ tan
IIRC it's a diesel. Has a window regulator issue with the right rear window.

The other 2nd owner, black on black and petrol.
It has some cosmetic issues and high mileage. But the engine and trans is in good condition (I checked it out)

Then again I may buy a e34 touring and call it the day.

Oops! My math failed me yesterday. I actually listed 6 cars in my top five.... So I had to eliminate one car from the list; It was a tough decision,but I finally picked the e28 Euro conversion 533i over the e39 Msport to represent my top 5.

....and my top 5 (parden the pun) were the Euro converted 533is with 3piece BBS wheels, M3 bone stock, Alpina 633csi 5speed with Alpina wheels (of course!), e39 Black on Black 540i/6 Msport with 18" style 32s, Black on Black 4.6is, and of course my ultimate favorite is my current white '95 540i/6 Msport with Hartge wheels and a blower!
Ahhhhhhhh I'm freaking out right now! I'm super jealous!

Wow! I didn't expect this much response, but thank you guys!

These cars are all in my rearview mirror now except for my '95 540i/6. Over time, I found myself moving on to other things (although I cannot remember why I ever sold the e30 M3!)

So..... I have narrowed it down to my two favorite cars that I have owned; e30 M3 and the '95 Msport. Of course, if I had to choose between these two, my 540i would still be the king of the hill!
-hands down!
