E63 AMG
Found this weird hole in the side of my E63 engine

I was cruising along at about 140 when all of a sudden clouds of white smoke poured out of my exhaust. I got the car towed and upon further inspection, I seem to have a hole in the side of my block. There is also anther hole at the top of the block under the intake manifold.

Is there some sort of bondo I can use to patch these holes up and get my beloved amg back on the road?

Are you kidding me, there is nothing that can be done for this engine except to replace it. The bed plate and long block are damaged beyond repair, and it looks like the rods have damage as well.
The entire engine needs to come out for inspection. But from the looks of this, it's going to be an expensive repair.

Bondo will not work. You will need GorillaGlue and a sheet of metal.

I like JB weld. Make sure you run the oil through a sieve too!

Oh man, i hate to read about things like this! Did you happen to purchase the car from a dealership? I can only assume you were not aware of the underlying problem.

Prob not what you want to hear, but i’d highly recommend a replacement at the bare minimum to put your mind at ease. I feel confident in saying the owner of JB Weld and Gorilla glue would tell you their product was not designed to seal holes in the block of an AMG engine. In addition to exasperating a pre-existing issue.

I hope everything works out for you. Best of luck!

I think this a joke given that you suggested patching it but in the unfortunate case that you are serious; I'm sorry, but this is most likely irreparable. I would assume a new engine is the only solution.

These new cooling mods are getting out of control.

I bought it from a small dealer and had it shipped to me. This happened about 3 months into ownership

This reminds me of a time back in the day when myself and a couple of friends bought a piece of **** 80s S10 off a tweeker my friend new. Of course it had no title, but it was only $100. Not sure if it was stolen. Anyway, it had a knock and my friend was driving it around on the property where we did shenanigans. He stopped, yelled "it sounds better!" and about a minute later the truck quit. It threw a rod and had a similar hole in the block. We left it down the street from his house and it eventually got towed. All the **** we did back then, I'm not sure how we never got in trouble.

That is the first time I have ever seen that on an M156. Had the engine been apart before?
