Default New Diesel Owner

Hey guys, I just bought a 1987 300d with about 200k miles. I'm not new to working on cars but I am new to diesels. The main issue I have is that the car needs starter fluid to start but then runs great. I was wondering if anyone had some familiarity with this issue and could advise the best place to start my diagnostic. Other than that everything else seems to work as well as a car this old can. Thanks for any help!

Hello and welcome to the forum! Post some photos of your 300d for us to see. I'm attaching a link to our site's DIY tech articles on the W124 platform to help you get more familiar with it - the articles should also be helpful if you're planning on doing the maintenance/repairs yourself. Please let us know if you have any questions or if we can assist with any future part needs.
