Hi MHR TYM,...but is that all our versions have in common? how is yours different than mine and are there different powertrains in the 3500 version and how would i find out what i have?
Well i picked her up and man is it really nice. The guy took great care and it really shows. i want her to last at least close to the life of yours. i'll read through the forum looking for service tips and when to have her serviced, i'll have the tranny fluid changed at 60K and keep using Mobil 1 every 8k and as far as that its all i know for now. the vin is WD2PD544045654176 - what does this mean to me?Hi MHR TYM,
I should imagine there's a lot in common.
There are different engines. The Mercedes-Benz model designation format goes as follows: the first part is the weight rating, the second part is the engine.
So, a 313 is 3 tonnes and 130 horsepower.
A 518 is 5 tonnes and 180 horsepower.
And so on.
Yours looks a good one - upload some more pics when you can.
