Your problem is most likley valve guides that are worn and leaking oil. Correct replacement cost would be about $2600.00 That would get your cylander heads rebuilt and a new timing chain. However I have had valve guide seals replaced on a 420SEL with successful results before. Either way i would have a qualified MB technician look at your engine first.
Good Luck!
