Your '89 CE has the 12 valve, 6 cylinder, 177 hp, M103 engine. Unfortunately the '90 year CE introduced the 104 engine (DOHC, 24 valve, 217 hp) -- according to MBUSA's "15 year" overview of past models.

If you can get hold of a shop manual for this model, you should have no problems pulling the head if indeed it is the head gasket leaking.

Good luck!


'91 300E, 208k miles
