It is most likely the head gasket and I have done MANY MANY of them on this engine. Yes Mercedes is aware they have a huge problem with this. Your extended warranty will pay for this if you have one. If not, put on the boxing gloves and go to the dealer. They may help you out somewhat, but my experience is if it is more than 2 or 3k out of warranty, they usually don't help much. TOYOTA HAD THE SAME PROBLEM AND TOOK CARE OF IT FOR OVER 100K. GO FIGURE. (I HOPE SOMEONE FROM MERCEDES READS THIS)
