Question about 2004 Mercedes-Benz C230 Kompressor
Open up oil and it looks like peanut butter ( not thick but still bad to look at ). Shaking from the engine comes when the car is getting hot and tries to cool itself off. White smoke comes and goes. All in all, it overheats, i have to put in water. Just a big hassle... sigh

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.

Here is the way to find out pull your spark plug put out and bring each cylinder tdc and put 50 psi air in that cylinder remove radiator cap and check for bubbles do this to all cylinders,if no bubbles I would be checking to see if that engine has a oil cooler that could leak oil into your coolant,some mercededs had oil cooler,

Testimonial: "Thank you, will try. I was going to flush out the cooling system a couple time and see if I got oil again."
