Now ain't that sumthin! I sure would have started with the turbo, I've seen several blowing huge clouds of blue smoke due to ruined bearings, but I'd never have guessed a blown head gasket sucking oil out of the chaine case!

Guess I'd better have a closer look at the 220 D this week, wonder if I don't have a similar head gasket problem. Hmm. I'm pretty sure that's what has happened to the Volvo, too (also known for head gasket failures!)
