Hi everyone,
I own a 1990 190e 2.6 with 103,000 miles on it. It was just recently put in a german specialty shop to fix a oil leak. They told me they replaced the head gasket and did a valve job, however about a week after i got it back the leak is back. I am loosing about a quart a week. It doesnt smoke so i know i am not buring any oil. any pointers would be greatly appreciated.
thanks Jack.

Re: Mercedes 190e 2.6 oil leak

Not having it go out the tailpipe means that the oil is either landing on the ground somewhere or causing other mischief, like mixing with your coolant. Have you inspected under the car or looked at the condition of the fluid in the coolant reserve tank?
