SOURCE: oil leak

I've never seen a cracked block leak oil. Have problem verified so there is no "or" in your problem. As far as first time jobs, a head gasket on a mercedes is not where to start learning. If its a valve cover gasket, yes try it...otherwise have a quallified pro do the work.

Water leak fro left side of engine

You might have either a blown head gasket or a crack in your engine block on that side of the motor. If you dont have any leaks from hoses, fittings or the water pump itself then mostly likely it is the head gasket, another way to confirm and make sure is to do an oil change, if there is chunky build up or sludge like discolorations due to coolant or water leaking into your oil then its the head gasket, and you'll need to definitely have it replaced or look into purchasing another vehicle. If theres no problems with your oil then its a leak from somewhere else. Possibley a heater hose or coolant line.

Oil leak passenger side 300 turbo sedan, some on front passenger side wheel. Never lost oil pressure, but dipstick showed very little oil in crankcase on immediate after-run check. Have not started...

Add about 2.5-quarts of new engine oil to the engine.
Remove the passenger-side wheel, and support the car on jack-stands.
Start the engine and look for oil leak.
Chances are leaks are coming from failed oil-pan gasket or the drain-plug.
The head-cover gasket could be failing as well..

I have a 1993 mercedes 190e 2.6 and after getting my oil changed the small leak I had is now draining my engine. I have lost 1.5 quarts of oil in 6 weeks. What do I do now. I was told to get a new oil pan...

Unless the oil pan is badly damaged then I would not replace it. Tell your technician that you would like the gasket replaced and a new oil plug installed. See if this doesn't change the price to something a bit more reasonable. Hope this helps. Good luck.

I have a 1992 mercedes 190e 2.6 and I recently changed head gasket and now I have little or no oil pressure

Some suggestions:-
Could you have ommitted to connect an oil feed line to the overhead gear,
or incorrectly assembled the overhead gear allowing too much oil flow to the overhead valve gear?

Check for oil in the coolant- if present you may have incorrectly installed the head gasket.
