Mercedes-Benz 190E Problems

Engine -- Verified

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.

Miscellaneous -- Verified

One or more door windows may stop working due to a failed window regulator. Replacement of the failed regulator will be necessary to correct this concern.

Heating & Air Conditioning -- Verified

The AC system may not blow cold air due to Refrigerant leaks from AC manifold hoses. Leak diagnoses, most commonly using leak detection dye, may be necessary to determine the exact location of any leaks.

Engine -- Verified

A coolant leak may develop form the Radiator due to degradation of its plastic components. Replacement of the failed radiator will be necessary.

Engine -- Verified

The cooling system hoses may fail unexpectedly. The hoses can look good on the outside, but the rubber can degrade and erode on the inside. If not carefully checked, the hoses can burst at any time.

Mercedes-Benz 190E Reviews

I bought the car, 1989 190E 2.6, with 100K miles about 6 months ago off Craigslist. It wasn't running but it was very inexpensive and cosmetically excellent. The owner before me drove it home from work one day, 2 1/2 years ago and it quit and he left it in the driveway. I paid the $500 he was asking and towed her home. This is what she needed and I did all the work myself:
New Battery-$60
New Voltage Regulator-$32
New Front Strut Mounts-$65
New Plugs and Wires-$90
Change the Brake Fluid-$8
Everything works and she runs great. What a great deals I got!!!! Very thankful!!!!

My car starts but will not stay started. Today I was trying to start it and the master cylinder backfired. Please advise

I have a 1993 Mercedes 190E. Nice driving car. Has many problems, mostly electrical. Only the driver side window works. Rear passenger tire is "shooting bullets". At times my car will not crank up in the cold. To get a/c, I have to turn on the heat and then turn down the temperature dial. The speaker on the back driver side is the only one that works. Very choppy while shifting gears. Shakes very hard while sitting at a light. Great steering and handling.

Got a 1992 Mercedes Benz 190E 2.6L 154,00 miles

stable , fun driving car. Too many problems. specially electrical. Poor
head valve design caused early failure. Not what Mercedes was, should be.
