My 85 300D which I parted and junked about 4 years ago was the oileyest beast I have ever seen. It leaked oil all over. So when I installed that engine in my 240D, I put on a new valve cover gasket and I removed the whole oil filter, cleaned up the old gasket area and put on a new gasket, and it is perfect. Can park it anywhere and all that great Mobil One stays in the engine and none is on the driveway!
