I never even saw a leak on my 1996. it just went up in steam one day. GET IT FIXED. Buy the part, and do it your self, if yuu can. ayou will save a ton, and its pretty easy, no special tools needed, just a good set of the usual stuff. Remember, it will fail, and you will be stuck, somewhere. Good luck.

<p>The composite (plastic) intake manifold may crack near the <span class="ct_glossary tooltip"><a id="ce_116" class="ct_glossary tooltip" href="/thermostat">thermostat</a> housing </span>and cause a <a id="ce_80" class="ct_glossary tooltip" href="/coolant">coolant</a> leak. Ford released an updated manifold that was reinforced to prevent a recurrence. No recall was issued for this problem but Ford did extend the warranty to seven years on some models from the date of purchase.</p>
Car Review: 1990 Mercedes-Benz 190E
October 07, 2013, 11:14 PM
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 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!!!!
