I'm original owner of a 94 E320, 112K miles, dealer maintained and in pristine condition. Here's my dilemma. I now see an oil leak on garage floor. It's coming from the plastic plug at bottom of the Engine/Trans bellhousing. I called the dealer(bringing it in tomorrow)about this. They said the plug I describe is actually an inspection port, not a drain plug. Possibily the engine rear main seal or a front pump in the transmission. Both sound ominous in cost...anyone have any thoughts.
The vehicle is pristine, I'm just at a point whether to call it quits on this. My concern is will this be a money pit. Just had water pump replaced two weeks ago. Car runs and looks like new except for clearcoat breaking down due to deffective MB paint. Dealer and dealer techs say "keep this car, its a gem and they don't make them like this now". I'm in a quandry to tell you the truth.
Forgive my lamenting, I know many a sad tale is spun in this forum but I would appreciate guidance...thanks...Bob.
