Customer Question
Oil leak on my...

Oil leak on my e320 diesel bluetec. repeated leak and have gone thru my second serpentine belt in the last three months. First one had a leaky pump that was replaced. Not sure about the second one yet. In the shop and may be blowback throug the turbos.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you ever replaced the gaskets? Maybe the hoses?

They are ok.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Mercedes?

2008 with 285,000 miles

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

Mercedes mechanic is on it.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I heard that this is a major problem with this engine. I put 50,000 plus miles on it a year and bought it used with 195000 mi. on it in April 2015. No problems until the last few months.
