All engines of this car very reliable, but engine what has 150 H/p, it’s evidently not enough for this heavy car.
As well as Mercedes w124 engines prone to overheat, so don’t forget that you need to clean radiator, if you noticed that radiator in bad condition better to change it. Repair of engine very expensive.
