Hello, so sorry you are having this issue, this is very very common on these engines :(

oil pushes through the solenoids for the cam adjusters on the front of the engine and seeps all the way through the harness to all the parts on the engine including the engine control unit.

This is a very costly fix, I would call mercedes

1(###) ###-####/p>

complain of the issue, and see if they will help with the cost.

This is a HUGE issue in all models since 2012 since that is the first year of the new engine styles

The number above is for Mercedes corporate,, not the dealer.

They will create a case and work with you to help you.

Let me know your thoughts. If you have any follow up questions, please let me know using the reply button. If you are satisfied with my help, please let me know so we can complete your question.

Mercedes Mechanic: Lou Palomino, Mercedes Technician replied 2 years ago

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I'm guessing they have to I don't no but your advice is I value anything from 2011 back in the 550 was told that the 550 was bad all together would like to have one from what would you recommend between 2007 and 2011 and will stop bothering you old if.propertly did it.shouldnt be a problem
Mercedes Mechanic: Lou Palomino, Mercedes Technician replied 2 years ago

stay away from 07- but 08-11 good and solid :)

the 550 is not bad.

only the 06-07 ones were. due to the balance shaft and gear issues .

One last question you said that they want to replace everything the oil touch is that really necessary any way to be clean including computer
Mercedes Mechanic: Lou Palomino, Mercedes Technician replied 2 years ago
I cannot answer that as I am not there to see it. All cases are different and you can make the call. If it were me, I would replace the wiring harness and the solenoids that leaked the oil and clean everything else. Either way if something is bad, its bad. Not like it changes much. So just replace them as the parts fail IF they fail. Thats my opinion. Try and save the customer some money.
