Just the facts ma’am.
imported 1997 230 SLK to Canada from Japan.
Currently >80,000 km
Sat for year
Dead battery, fried alternator, rebuilt, running fine, drove 50 km filled up, 3 km later bogged out, engine jumping around, dumped in fuel additive “complete” I think, changed fuel filter, air filter for good measure, drained tank, filled tank, still jumping.

That brings me here. After reading a few posts. I Know I need the Mercedes sds star, so I thought I’m in now. LOL.

Hi I’m David

Hi @estranjerodeMB

Welcome to SLK World. Thanks for posting an intro.

Can I suggest you take a look at the R170 General Discussion forum and take a look round (use search, too!) You may find the answers to some of your issues there. If you don't get the answers you need, post a new thread to ask for help. You may be surprised how quickly we can help.

Best of luck!

Thanks to everyone for the welcome.
Still wandering around the site.
The whole forum thing is new to me.
Please forgive my tardiness at replying.
Lots to read.

David
