Engine Oil and Coolant Leaks Resulting in Fulid Intermix on Mercedes-Benz E320

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.

I had coolant/oil leak while car was under warranty. At 100,000 miles it developed a major external oil leak. Repair is a new head and timing chain cover gasket. While the parts are not too expensive ($75.00) the time to remove and replace the head is about 14+ hrs. You will need special tools for some operations. If you are not a mechanic, don't even try it. This is common problem with the 6 cyl engine and oil leaks occour at the right side of the timing chain cover and the head gasket.
