This could mean a neglected car which has not seen frequent oil changes. But of course this would need a physical examination. Can any of you tell me if you have had similar experience with your w123 trannys and what was the diagnosis and what was the cost involved?
I am a bit worried because the owner informed me that he replaced the tranny from a donor car? Does this mean it is cheaper/smarter to do that rather than fix a couple of worn bearings? Or there could be other issues lurking under?
