Head gasket not torqued down properly or the cam brake assembly above that area is leaking.

Engine coolant level drops on Mercedes C180 2001 model


Loss of coolant is serious because if you allow your engine to overheat you can cause very expensive engine damage - thousands of dollars of damage (not hundreds).

The items that need looking at are:

- Radiator cap is old and faulty. This can allow coolant to escape and needs to be replaced every 4 or 5 years (sometimes sooner) with the correct spec cap - not any old product picked up at some auto store.

- External leak - you need to check all flexible coolant hoses and connections for leaks as well as around the water pump to ensure the WP gasket is not leaking

- Internal leak
The most common is a blown cylinder head gasket which can allow coolant to escape and to get into the cylinders and into the lubrication system. If getting into the cylinders you will see white smoke coming from the exhaust . You need to check the engine oil for coolant contamination as a coolant can escape into the lubrication system via a damaged head gasket. You also need to check the coolant for signs of oil escaping under pressure via the blown head gasket into the cooling system.

An internal leak can also be caused by a cracked cylinder head but if you have this condition are blown head gasket will have probably occurred around the same time.

Milky oil cap on merc c180 2005


You havw a serious problem with water getting into the oil.
Most likely it is leaking from the head gasket. You mentioned that the head gasket was replaced 6 months ago. Did the cylinder head get re-tighten after several hundred kms. If not this should have been done to avoid this problem.

I have a 1996 Chevy C1500 5.0L Vortec V8. I lost oil pressure and found water in the oil. Replaced oil and filter so we could start the engine again. Regained oil pressure, no noise, ran smooth, no bubbles...


next step is to remove the intake, you are on the right track, worse i ever found was a cracke block, but that was in a 61 t-bird which was repaired with jb weld ten yrs ago and still holding, but the intake gasket sounds right

White coloured engine oil, overheating


White oil means water or coolant is leaking in via Head Gasket Failure or a crack in the head. Along with repair - be sure to have each cylinder compression tested to see if there is a crack that has developed.
