Here's a pic of a piston from an EL 97 model, that blew a heater hose, while the guy that had the car was in a shop, ( he was a travelling rep), the engine was left idling, and it got so hot, the rocker cover gasket got displaced, and oil leaked out, engine caught fire...etc..etc..The firey's came and put it out. The car had 70,000k's on it, and the engine was replaced under warranty, only 2 yr old at the time.
