Hi Leathermang,

It is a OM 616 Turbo engine and the intercooler was added by MB to get Euro-IV certification.

So you have a four cylinder turbo engine ? Did they add oil squirters ( I am hoping ) and if they did do you know if they will fit into other non turbo 616 engines ? ( like mine! LOL )

First, who the hell ever said 100-105C is "overheating", or even "too hot"? Just because YOU want the engine to run cooler doesn't mean anything is WRONG! Sheesh, come ON guys, be reasonable here. The 617.95x engines have plenty of cooling capacity if maintained properly, mine (with mostly new components) refuses to go above 90-95C, under any conditions (110F ambients with the AC on still doesn't affect it). Some of the newer OM60x engines DO run a little hotter but that is NORMAL. Under extreme conditions they may get to 100-105C where a 617 might stay at 95C. Mine stay between 90-100C most of the time and almost never touch 105. As long as it doesn't get to 110-115 (or worse), relax. Take a Valium or something. And your frequency of problems will be much, much lower if you all change the coolant every 2-3 years like MB specifies, and use MB (or Zerex G-05) anti-freeze ONLY (never, ever the Green Death or GM Death-Cool). Abused systems may require a citric acid flush to restore them. Some light reading:
