Signs of Bad Mercedes Head Gasket

When you have a Mercedes-Benz head gasket failure, you may have no symptoms with your engine at all. The symptoms only start to appear when the leak manages to reach the engine cylinder, coolant passage, or the oil passage. When this happens, the engine may not want to start or idle roughly. You may notice that you have a coolant or oil leak, and your engine may start to overheat or run hot. Coolant can end up in the engine oil pan, and you may hear a gurgling sound in the coolant reservoir or radiator. Your check engine light may come on, and if the coolant starts getting burned in the engine, you’ll see white exhaust. This exhaust can smell sweet. Should your gasket blow completely, your engine will overheat minutes after you start it. Finally, it’ll stall and won’t start again.

What is a Head Gasket?

This gasket’s job is to create a seal for the engine’s internal combustion process. There are two main components on most engines, including the cylinder head and the engine block. They have to meet and seal to prevent engine failure. The gasket is between the engine block and the cylinder, and it seals the two by force. This gasket acts like a barrier that prevents the engine’s oil and coolant from running and mixing together when you operate the car. If you’re not sure if you have a Mercedes blown head gasket or not, look at your engine oil. If you see coolant mixed in or if the oil turns brown instead of the traditional black, this is a big sign that your gasket has an internal failure.

Why Do I Need a Mercedes Head Gasket Replacement?

 Although there are several issues that could cause problems with your gasket, the most common reason is because your Mercedes overheats. The head and engine block can expand beyond reasonable limits, and the gasket will pinch when the engine starts to overheat. This will eventually result in a total gasket failure that requires a replacement. If you looked at your oil but can’t tell if it has coolant mixed in, check and see if your car has smoke coming from the tailpipe. This can be another clue that your gasket failed. We understand that this can be a complex issue that no ordinary shop should take on, and you should seek the help of a certified master mechanic specific to Mercedes-Benz like we have in our shop. We can diagnose and repair a broad range of issues using OEM parts.
