You getting benzin (petrol) into the engine oil??? I'm assuming your 190E is injected? Problem could be your fuel distributor. If you remove the lines from the fuel distributor that go to the injectors. turn on the ignition just so that the fuelpump kicks in (it only stays on a short time to pressurize the system)... there should be NO fuel coming out. If fuel bubbles out of any of the 4 (assuming a 4cyl) lines of the fuel distributor than the fuel distributor is 'faulty' and feeds the injectors to much fuel and the excess fuel washes itself past the rings into the engine sump. This can be caused by one or more of the O-rings inside between the plungerhousing and the upperbody or even some perforation in the gasket membrane.... either way the fuel distributor is not a servicable part, Bosch does not sell any kind of kit for the internal parts as the fueldistributors are factory adjusted to a certain flow and as new parts be of different thickness etc. the flow would be outside manufacturers settings. Cheapest solution would be a secondhand unit.

1988 mercedes 190 e only runs if I dump fuel down the carburator then dies. Its not getting fuel for some reason.

The fuel pump has gone bad in it. It's time to replace it. I'm sure that the carb. is fine since you can dump fuel down it and it will run for a short time. Fuel just isn't getting into the carb. for the car to run right.

Mercedez benz fuel pump

If yours is the same model as mine (W201, 1993 model) on the left rear underbelly, just ahead of the left rear axle you will find a sub-assembly of the fuel pump and fuel filter. Caution, there is no way to isolate the fuel line, so if you're going to replace it, do the job on an almost-empty tank.
