I recently purchased a 1981 240D diesel Mercedes, and I have been pleasantly shocked with how much I like this car. I never knew anything about these, but I found a seemingly great car, and at a great price, so I could not pass it up.
It is extremely comfortable, in mint condition, and I like that it is a diesel. But, this is my main problem: I do not know much about diesel engines. I need help! It just started to snow a few days ago, I don't have the car in an area I can plug it in, and now it won't start. I tried to start it just two times, but it is not even turning over. It is about 10 degrees outside. It has never had trouble starting in the past! Yes, I wait for the globe light to turn off before I try to start the engine. It just makes a loud noise... Is it frozen diesel lines? Starter issue because it is so cold? Not plugged in? Anyone have any suggestions or ideas? Thanks!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
