My 49K mile ML has had some oil leaks. I'm just curoius to see if any of you out there have had similar experiences.
At 48K it began leaking oil at the rear main seal. The rear main seal, crankshaft seal and other various related seals where replaced and the leak was cured.
Now At 49K it began leaking at the oil coiler which was then replaced.

We have not had many post on oil leaks on the ML, you may have just been unlucky

See a few of these when i was in the dealers, not really common but they get done under warranty so owner has no idea! prone to leaking out the caps as well!!

S class
Would your ML not still be under warranty, and as it only has 49K then i'm sure your dealer should be sympathetic..

Was an E300TD, now a Lexus LS400
Maybe its been overfilled at some point in its life.

It was all warranty and gauranteed for 1 year My concern is the warranty is up in 200 miles and if I had 2, what I consider to be serious oil leaks, in 49K - what do I have to look forward to in the next 100K?
Thanks for your response.

If it was, it was done by my MB dealer. I have the oil changed every 5K.
Thanks for your response.
