In this video, I disassemble the twin-turbo AMG V12 engine in my 2005 CL65 to find a $1 part that caused $10,000 in damage. I also find some mystery extra parts in the engine and another major factory defect. It's pretty wild so grab that pop and enjoy the show.

You were an actual Mercedes tech? How could you possibly think that seal could cause an oil leak? Even if it failed, it would only leak into the crankcase. Obviously it had some other seal leaking, that most likely could have been fixed without removing the cylinder heads

It does not make sense to be this O-ring the failure point of this oil leak, since this o-ring is concealed inside, almost at the center of this housing and surrounded by this housing other gasket. If this O-ring should fail then the oil leaking through that O-ring would fall inside the oil and coolant area of this housing and not to the outside. The only reason to change this O-ring is because of an oil pressure loss and poor turbos lubrication and further failure!

I can't understand how that large black o-ring could cause an external oil leak? It's inside / under the large cover, so a leak would simply lead to loss of feed to the turbos surely, not seepage into the vee between the heads? Perhaps I'm missing something. Furthermore, the engine isn't "broken" - it has an oil leak. Fascinating to see inside this engine though - pity about the clickbait title!

I do remember you clearly saying you could do a better job than Hoovies Mechanic 'Wizard' and I thought "ok" this will be interesting. The date of this video is 6th of march 2021 and the trail for the AMG has gone cold till this date 13th May 2021. You most definitely don't have a case of 'Hyper-focus' and I admire your multitask ability on other projects while the CL AMG has quietly disappeared to the wayside in favour of your latest fettle a $750 Jeep SUV bought site unseen . Are we to believe the CL AMG was too much of a monumental project in which case 'Abandoned' and the wizard took that vehicle as far to reasonably possible before your gallant chivalry intervention. Such a beautiful car we had high hopes and faith it would return to the road with your genius at the helm.

That blue O-ring looked like an injector O-ring. I know the earlier version of that engine, non-turbo, had an oil cooler in the "V" of the engine, and required cylinder head removal to gain access to it. Been a Mercedes tech for 27 years, and I love the cars, but I often wonder about some of the logic they apply to their designs.

I would say that if that plastic vacuum canister broke that they wouldn't bother taking the old one out the fix is probably placing a secondary canister somewhere else in the engine bay and rerouting the vacuum lines.

This is just another example of how Germans cannot resist making three parts do the work of one part. Loved working with Mercedes Benz Racing years ago, . I love the story of the old mono posto Formula Renn Wagons (race cars) that Mercedes raced before Hitler blew the world up. They (the W125's) had over 650 horse power before World War Two! They were virtually unbeatable,with dual staged superchargers. They were extremely complicated,and the American Army captured some of these and shipped one or two back home. They actually ran one of them at Indianapolis Raceway and it blew the American cars away. They then discovered only one of the superchargers was working. Germans haven't made any improvements in that arena. Even their bloody tanks were difficult to maintain due to their extreme complexity.

Good lord. That’s a bastard design. I can 209% guarantee you that I would not be putting that back together with that o ring and plate. First thing to do is tap that port for an npt to jic adapter. Then mill out the oil port on the cover and mill off that chamber. Reinstall the modded plate. Then make a 6an ptfe hose to attach to the oil feed line. The oil feed line can get the plate cut off and have a 6an steel male fitting brazed on. Never have this issue again!

7:00. Only 135,000 miles? I overhauled my 89 Dodge Aries in 2003 in the driveway, (someone ran it out of oil) and that was 164,000 miles ago. I did blow a head gasket at 73,000 but it was a cheap Chinese head gasket so no one to blame but myself for that. It took two hours to change in my driveway. The old Dodge is passed 280,000 total miles now and people ask me why I keep driving it. Too bad they don't already know.

16:51Okay isnt this an easy fix from an engineering standpoint, like just make another screw in connector, almost like a door hinge, like do like a traingle hinge where it still mounts to the valve cover, then goes up, connects into another hinge that connects into that part that can easily be removed without removing the valve covers and everything else? like it just seems like no one ever considered the part might fail, or need to be taken out so they put in a permamount for it I mean its not unlike mercedes to be this dumb quite frankly, one just needs to take a look at how the top system works on a 380 SL and how it latches onto the front of the car, but dumb this mechanically in the engine however is abit above and beyond.
