Have you noticed dark stains on the garage floor under your car? If you suspect an oil leak, don’t let it wait too long. While leaks can go for a long time without becoming serious, they can also grow very quickly. Euromotive’s trained technicians can provide you with a Mercedes Benz oil leak diagnostic and repair right in Fort Lauderdale.

The Most Common Reasons for Oil Leaks

While your Mercedes is a precision-engineered machine, it suffers from the same problems that affect most automobiles. The engine is put together from several different parts – the valve cover, the oil pan, the engine block, etc. Where these parts come together there is the potential for oil to leak out. To prevent that, automakers use gaskets.

Of course, those gaskets are subject to wear and tear due to high heat and pressure. Eventually, they start to break down and that creates oil leaks. Some of the most common locations for oil leaks include the following:

  • The oil pan gasket is a common source of leaks and is one of the simplest to fix, although it does require draining the oil and removing the pan from the engine block.
  • The rear main seal is another common spot for oil leaks and is also one of the most challenging to repair due to its location at the back of the engine where it mates with the transmission.
  • The valve cover gasket can also develop leaks over time and will leak oil down the side of the engine.

Other potential reasons for an oil leak include:

  • A leaking oil filter: If your oil filter is leaking, it must be replaced right away.
  • A leak from the oil pan plug: The plug could be loose, missing the gasket, or damaged.

How Does a Mercedes Benz Oil Leak Diagnostic and Repair Work?

Once you bring your vehicle to our service center, we’ll clean the old oil off the engine so that we can determine exactly where it is coming from. Oil can leak from one point, run-down or across, and appear in a completely different area, so we take care to ensure an accurate diagnosis. Once we’ve determined the problem, we’ll discuss it with you and decide on a course of action. We’ll also double-check to determine if you have more than one leak that needs to be repaired.

After you approve the repair, we’ll get to work removing the old gasket and installing the new one. Then we’ll clean the engine again, refill the oil, and a test drive and inspect the repair to make sure that there are no more leaks.
