Mercedes-Benz 300SE ProblemsRepair Leaks From Head Gasket/Timing Cover Gasket Before Oil and Coolant Intermix
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.
Failed ignition coil packs or spark plug resistors can cause a rough running motor or lack of power.
A cracked or broken heater core outlet housing can cause a coolant leak near the bulkhead (firewall). Our technicians remind us that coolant leaks should be repaired in order to avoid overheating the engine due to coolant loss.
