'91 190e 2.3 201 Head Gasket Replacement

Hi all,

My dad has a 91 190e 2.3 (~70k mi) with a leaking head gasket (oil in coolant) and I want to replace it for him. I've searched the forum, but I still have some questions that I hope you experts can help me with.
I don't have a manual and don't wan to buy the shop manual, can I just buy the Hayes one for 190 '84-'88. Same engine, right?

Do I need any special tools?
Will I need new bolts/nuts for the intake, exhaust and head? What is the chances of me getting all them off without ruining 1? all?
Should I replace anything else while there? Chain tensioner? guide?
Should I replace the coolant hoses?
Any tricks I need to know?
Thanks for your help in advance.

Pete K.

Welcome to the Forum.

Using the search feature is the best way to get answers to the questions you have. It is very likely that someone has been there and done that.

In this spirit I used your words: head gasket replacement

and 190 and got this head gasket replacement

Hope this helps,

Actually, if you read my post, I did search the forum and did read all about head gasket replacements. The questions I have were not answered by previous posts.
There is a nice write-up for a 6-cylinder job, but not for the 201 engine.
