Mercedes-Benz 300CE Engine Oil and Coolant Leaks Resulting in Fulid Intermix

(6 reports)

Internal and External engine oil & coolant leaks can develop from the head gasket and/or timing cover gasket; these leaks should be repaired before the engine oil and coolant intermix which can result in severe engine damage.

Car seemed to hesitate at start up, during idle, and take off. During a daily fluid check, I noticed water mixing in the oil. I am going to verify how bad the leaks is by adding a stop leak product into the radiator. I will revisit the site and share the results of this temporary fix. -
