Is 1985 Mercedes 380Se A Diesel Powered Vehicle?
I have a 380SEC, the coupe version. The sedan body is called a W126. "S" stands for "Sonderklasse" or "special class" , "E" stands for "Einspritz" meaning "fuel injection".
The engine is a gasoline burning V8 of about 3.8 litres displacement alloy head and block, single overhead camshaft on the two cylinder heads. Two valves per cylinder. The injection system is by Bosch it may be the "KE" Jetronic in an '85 model. If I recall correctly the timing chain in '85 models was a dual gang, but I would not put the house on that.
If you are thinking of buying one, be sure the timing chain is good. Look for oil leaks at the rear of the cylinder heads at the level of the head gasket.
Minor idling problems are common and can often be traced to the idle control circuit board, a poor electrical connection or the air metering valve being a bit dirty. Another cure is to widen the spark gap slightly.
Also be sure the transmission shifts smoothly and that the rear suspension, which is self-leveling is in good condition. This last is reasonably inexpensive to fix. Another problem found with W126 is delamination of the rear window, this can be seen with a misty patches specially at or near the base. Replacement rear windows are very expensive, much more than windscreens. Look for rust behind the rear window in the panel at the top front of the luggage compartment. You will have to get into the compartment for this.
If there appear to be problems with the air conditioning be careful. Some air con faults are easy fixed, other not so easy. Be sure the air is directed to the windscreen or dashboard vents according to the buttons you push on the central console. If this does not work it indicates that the flaps that direct air are stuck or torn. Some other faults are cheaper to fix.
Have I put you off? Actually these cars in good condition still have plenty of life left in them. They are not really fast in acceleration but will cruise all day at 100mph.
There are a number of forums on the net with lots of experienced people who can answer questions and anyone with a little mechanical knowledge can do minor repairs themselves.
Can I Claim Back The £70 Excess From My Insurance Company, For The Windscreen They Took Long To Repair?
Basically, Some Yobs Threw A Rock From A Motorway Bridge Onto My Car And Shattered The Windscreen. I Telephoned The Insurance Company On Sunday Who Said That The Company That Fixes Windscreens For Them Would Get In Touch With Me Monday Morning. They Did, And Told Me That They Couldn'T Do It Til Tuesday Earliest. Meanwhile, I Cannot Drive My Car And Get To Work Because It Is Now Illegal, And Any Driving Around Has To Be Done By Public Transport. They Didn'T Offer Me A Courtesy Car (Even Though I Pay For That), And I'Ve Got To Pay An Excess Of £70 For The Windscreen. Do You Think I Can Claim My Time From Work And Public Transport Money Back?
Whatever the company, the unfortunate thing as with any replacement is getting the parts. If the insurer got in contact with the company earliest monday morning and said company did not have the windscreen for your car in stock it takes a minimum of 24 hours to get the right screen and depending on the car, a maximum of (the longest ive ever witnessed) 6 months. Its an unfortunate thing that you were without a car but you cant really blame the company for yobs breaking it in the first place and as such the windscreen company would be very unlikely in my experiance to offer any sort of compensation.
If you have any quarrel with the windscreen company the best thing to do is just to contact your insurer and get them to chase it up.
Sadly both major windscreen companys ive worked for dont really care about their customers as its not really you guys that pay them, the cash excess you pay is pennies compared to what your insurance company pays them, and it takes the threat of messing about the insurer rather than the actual car owner to get any sort of action out of them.

How Much Would It Cost To Fix A Car'S Front Bumper And Windshield In The 1960'S?
Or Anything, I'M Not Too Knowledgeable With That Sort Of Thing.
60's prices would not be relevant for anything but a specific history project write up
The cost of fixing it all depends exactly the same as it does on modern cars as to which car it is and what is wrong with it
Bumpers were mostly made in chrome over riders in the 60's as this is a cheap process that looks good when done
