I am tired of having problems with my 190D 2.5T. It needs a head gasket now ( uses coolant), smoke pretty bad, basically to much to worry about. So my question is where can I find a new engine? (used of course, also any other ideas for engines)

check criagslist and junkyards, but that was not a very common engine. you are probably better off having yours repaired. It would probably cost about the same either way

+1. And by doing that you know for sure that your engine is brand new. Buying an used one is no guarantee of solution.

I've seen a number of 2.5 turbos in some 300Es in a couple of junkyards. If you're willing to do it yourself, you can save a lot.

Smoking...piston rings or valve guides?
