Great updates and happy to see you maintaining this one well. Particularly like the colour on your car too. I have also heard that 210 has a better ride than the 211. Wishing you a great ownership ahead

Wishing you years of happy motoring.

Thank you for your kind words.

I bought Lemforder spares from www.autodoc.co.uk. I didn't check the total cost. Will update shortly.

re: My Adventure in buying a Used 1998 Mercedes W210 E250 Diesel | EDIT: Restoration completed

Last week, my day started with a frustrating twist – my car refused to start! Well, after ruling out the usual suspects, I did some quick research online and found that a malfunctioning fuel shut-off valve can prevent the fuel from reaching the engine. Luckily the “Merc Motors” in Cochin had it in stock and replaced. Even though OM605 is a non-complicated NA diesel, the parts which may prevent the engine from starting are fuel shut off valve, crankshaft position sensor, air in the system due to worn O rings and Diesel plunger spring. So, as a precautionary measure, I replaced all together with fuel shut off valve. The V belt had a noise in the idle RPM. So, replaced the damper and spring. Now engine runs very smooth in idle. Planning to fix new diesel injection nozzles too.
