Mercedes-Benz 300TE 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.

My car hesitates -
Engine oil turned milky, which of course means engine cooling water is mixing with oil. Obviously the head gasket is gone pushing oil into the cooling system. I went to NAPA, for $40.00 bucks on the advice of a guy behind the counter said give a head gasket sealer a try. So, what the hell. I forked over two twenties, dumped the stuff in (not even cleaning out the milky scum in the expansion tank) and - hey, its been working for over a year now. -
