Engine missing: E-220, 1996

I have a e220, 1996 W124.
somedays back, while driving the temperature rose to the maximum and i saw steam coming out from the bonnet. The mechanic told me that the water pump had leaked. Got it changed... the temperature was back to normal.

But now there is a lot of missing in the engine. The mechanic says that it could be due to damaged gasket or valve. He asked me to add 1/2 litre engine oil to a tank full of petrol and drive for about 200 Kms to see if the problem persists.

No luck so far.

Please suggest what could be the problem.

thanks,
Sumeet Mahajan

RE: Engine missing: E-220, 1996

Sounds like it might have gotten hot enough to cause a head gasket failure - pretty classic symptoms.

The engine is aluminum and very sensitive to overheating.

Have a mechanic you trust check it out.

Good luck.
