1984 Mercedes Benz 300cd Two Wheel Drive Automatic 242000 miles
My 1984 Mercedez Benz 300cd engine was just recently entirely overhauled.
While on the freeway, the engine started making a loud noise, like it was stuck in gear only much louder. Soon after, I could hear something fall out from under the engine and smoke came out from under the hood. What looked like a rectangular bracket about shoe box size fell from the engine completely charred, and the air intake hose had a crack in it. I was able to start the car again with some effort, but a lot of oil spilled out when the engine turned over and it did not sound right. The shop it is at is saying the engine block is cracked. I don't believe this, rather I think it has something to do with the air intake/overheating. Any ideas? Thank you
have the same problem?
