Quote from: Gpapaniko on 16 April 2023, 11:19 PMI have 400,000km W116 with an M110 engine in it. I have leaks from hoses, valve cover and all over the trans. I have managed to catch them all with a couple of oil pans in the garage and while unsightly, Im always carefull not to park on the driveway of friends when visiting. Having only had the car for just over a year, its clear the engine has had a long life of living with leaks, so while I have the leaks, there is no discernable loss in ATF or Engine Oil and the engine has never run hot so far. I will address these leaks when I retire and do my own engine rebuild as I am sure once you start digging more things will break. Mind you if you read the manual, it does recommend a check of all fluids prior to any planned prolonged driving so I get the feeling leaks were engineered into the design.
