My '88 300E very clearly blew a head gasket. Coolant vapor from tailpipe and losing water into the internals. When starting it later, it popped and made a loud smacking noise. Do you think I bent a rod or did other damage to a piston/rod assembly? If it's just a head gasket, a valve job wouldn't hurt at this point anyway.
