I think he is referring to the siliconized cylinder liner. BUT THE GOOD NEWS - the engine is not toast. Mercedes Canada sells new cylinder liners that an engine shop can press out the old one and press in the new one. The same thing happened to a friend of mine on his 420sel I could be wrong but I think the cost of the liner and the engine shop time was about $700 CDN not including reassembling the engine.- new piston with rings and the liner and the engine is still working great - 4 years later. It is a lot of work though. If you are interested go to Ebay - a guy there is selling a 420sel engine with low mileage for $1100 US complete. Either way - the car is not history.
