Seeing as VM also has these 2.8's in some marine apps, it couldn't hurt to check around to see if any larger boat places have any qualified diesel techs if none can be found through any of the usual diesel shops.

Some of the private import repair shops have been known to have a diesel tech or one that they could recommend. Just a thought.

Good link for anyone on the hunt.

If the seller/lister was a bit more up on the 2.8 - he or she should have known it was not a Mercedes.

This reminds me of a Peugeot diesel that my dad had in the late 70s/early 80s. The diesel itself had problems three times and it was always tough not only getting parts but finding someone to work on it. The car looking almost new ended up going to the junk yard with only 100k on it for those reasons.

But I hope of course for the OP that that's not the result!

Ever try one of the European specific auto shops that specialize in diesels? That might be an option.
