I'm new here - just had a little around. Nice reading.
Well, here is my story.
I purchased a very nice 190 D 2.5 with aut. It runs very good and has been
maintained so perfectly and almost looks like it came from the factory. It
has 450.000 kilometers on it.
First things I did when I got it:
1. changed oil 10w40
2. changed oilfilter
3. changed diesel filter
I read in this NG about oil in coolant. It leaks a little oil into the
coolant - just a tiny bit.
And around the front gasket to the left just above the water pump it leak
from the head gasket just a little. I could run about 5000 kilometers
without loosing more than 0.25 liters oil.
Here is my Q:
Would it be usefull/helpfull to take of the valve top and tighten the gasket
bolts with an 12 star 10mm Umbraco to the side where it leaks or would this
make the head gasket uneven unless I make sure to tighten all around evenly
which I would try to do?
Would I be able to tighten the head gasket enough to stop the leak?
I know the alternative is to take the whole lot apart and enter a new
A new gasket in a repairshop here in Denmark is aprox. 1200 USD. Nice work
if you can get it.
Thanks you for your time and ideas.
