    Congrats! I really wanted to buy this car but seller and his mechanic were difficult to get a hold of. Glad someone here grabbed it.

    ...and that would explain why the car was for sale, for such a long time! Sounds like it was worth the effort though.

    Re: OWNER: Ertech

    I do recall the headliner sagging. I couldn’t get anyone to show me anything about the car, let alone start it. The mechanic over there is supposed to be pretty decent from what I hear around town. But I can’t confirm that. A bag full of receipts is always good.

    Stock LH is the same as SL500. Must have been a typo on the paperwork, the SL600 module can not work with a V8.

    Re: OWNER: Ertech

    I'd recommend Red Line 10W-40, but if you want something available at Wal-Mart, use Mobil-1 10W-40 or 15W-50. Remember to change the filter first, before draining the sump. Pour in 8 quarts (2 gallons) and the level should be perfect, right in the middle between MIN and MAX. You do not want the level at MAX.

    If you don't know when the ATF was last changed, I'd look into that as well. Search the forum for a ste-by-step How-To procedure on the ATF change.

    Just for what it’s worth, Mobil 1 did recently lower the zinc/phosphorus contents of the “high mileage 10–40” oil, so my recommendation of that now comes with some reservation. It used to be the exact Z/P rating of the MB recommended Mobil1 0W-40, and 5W-50. As far as “available at Walmart for dirt cheap” synthetic oils go, Wallmart has a bunch of them that meet MB spec 229.3 and/or 229.5. Just read the fine print on the back of the containers. Oils that carry the specifications are also frequently noted with some keywords like “European formula”, “rally formula” I’m happy with any oil that meets either of those criteria for the M119. Also, even though it does not spell out the compliance with either of those specifications, I could also run the 15W-50 with confidence.

    Heaven help me, I don’t want to start an oil thread, but I don’t have any idea what you guys have against the 0W–40 229.3/.5 oils, though. If it’s good enough for MB and Porsche on the autobahn in summer, it’s good enough for anything conceivable that you could do with your car here, probably even including the track.

    Oh, and on the MB spec thing, don’t be fooled. The specifications that are spelled out like this “229.3” are primarily gasoline engine oils. When you see extra digits like 229.31, .32, etc., those are low zinc/phosphorus primarily diesel specific oils intended to protect particulate filters, etc. If you want to stick with Mercedes synthetic oil recommendations for the 119, you are looking for MB spec 229.3 or 229.5, either singularly, or together is fine.

    FYI...
    Walmart has M1 0W-40 Euro for $22.88 / 5 qt jug. Free shipping if you spend more than $35.
