G Get the Symptoms indicating a Faulty Cylinder Head in Your Mercedes

Slide2:

A cylinder head is a closed end of a cylinder that is located in your Mercedes car's internal combustion engine.

Slide3:

It is found on the top portion of the engine block, above the pistons in the combustion chamber.

Slide4:

The cylinder head accommodates the key components for mechanical control of the gas exchange such as the intake and exhaust ducts for charge exchange process and valves.

Slide5:

The cylinder head is one of the more complex components of an engine whose function includes sealing the combustion chamber as well as absorbing the combustion power.

Slide6:

It is also responsible for supplying the moving components of the valve train.

Slide7:

Here are some of the main symptoms of a faulty cylinder head in your Mercedes.

Oil leaks:

Oil leaks

Slide9:

The cylinder head consists of oil and when there is a crack, you may find oil leaking out.

Slide10:

Consequently, this will make the oil light turn on and you need to check the engine & look to see if there is oil around the cylinder head.

Smoke:

Smoke

Slide12:

A sure sign of a cracked cylinder head is exhaust gases leaking into the cylinder head, which causes smoke in the engine.

Slide13:

If you have this problem in your Mercedes, it is likely a severe crack and should be repaired as soon as possible.

Low coolant levels:

Low coolant levels

Slide15:

Each cylinder is surrounded by coolant. In the case of crack, you may notice coolant at the seam of the cylinder head, in addition to oil.

Slide16:

Due to coolant leaks, the cylinder heads are at the forefront of the thermal stress. As a result, the metal parts will warp and crack.

Poor engine performance:

Poor engine performance

Slide18:

Poor engine performance is the first indication of a crack in a cylinder head. When this is the case, you will notice the engine isn’t running as it should because of low compression.

Slide19:

In Mercedes cars, compression is essential for combustion engines to burn fuel efficiently.

Slide20:

Other signs

Slide21:

There are also other symptoms of a faulty cylinder head in your Mercedes such as: Bubbles in the radiator Too much steam in the exhaust Moisture under the oil filler cap Burnt spark plugs Engine misfires
