I had the crankshaft seal replaced (actually for the second time in 3 months, in addition to a new harmonic balancer, bolt, and pins) as well as the seal between the oil filter and the block, and my diesel with 206K miles doesn't leave a spot on our white concrete driveway. Before the crankshaft seal was replaced, it looked like the Exxon Valdez spill. Take the car to a MB mechanic...and make him give you a guarantee when you have the crankshaft seal replaced. Over $700 later, I wished I hadn't been a cheapskate and had the repair done locally. You may not be able to eliminate ALL of the leaks, but people you visit won't call and complain about your car leaking. Good luck!!
