On removing the engine cover on my 1998 C220 CDI the whole injector area was covered in hardened/brittle black tar/(oil). My mercedes mechanic tells me that it's a leaking injector and may not be worth fixing. The car has had to be topped up with oil on a fairly regular basis since I purchased it 10 years ago. But car is driving well and i do not notice any loss of power. I would be grateful for any advice/comments.
