How many higher mileage M104s with original head gasket
Have a 95 E320 and have been reading a lot on the forum here about the head gasket problem. The question: is this an absolute guaranteed failure after some period of time or are there a lot of cars that never have the gaskets replaced?
Also, on another car I had, after noticing some oil seepage between the head and block, I did a hot torque of the head bolts which helped a lot and was able to run the car for many more miles before getting rid of it and never replaced the head gasket. Has anyone tried this on the M104?
