I use to own a 1989 240. I sold it 2 years ago and it has found its way back to me. The car was driven regularly for the 1st year, so I am told, and then given to the woman's son. Since he owned it, he didn't drive it because apparently, he couldn't afford insurance...

Besides low transmission fluid, I also noticed very low coolent, but also a sludge at the botton of the resevoir. The car started right up when I checked it out, no unusual smoke coming out of the tail pipe, but the car was only on briefly.

I have history with this car, having owned it for about 2 years and liked it a lot. I'm trying not to get emotional about it and make a rash, bad decision. Any opinions would greatly be appreciated.

Thanks,

Ted

Flush it and drive it! Only time will tell if there's actually an issue or not. Change the oil as well, of course.
