I just bought a beautiful 300 E, 89, and I love it. I have a mechanic check it out and said it had a small oil leak on the cylider head gasket, and on the timing cover gasket. the leaks are not bad, yet, other than that, the car checked out perfect except for it needs a new alternator and a rear shock is leaking slightly. we are a little nervous about the oil leaks, but 2 other mechanics at mercedes dealers said they wouldn't fix them until they got to the point where they were dripping. Any advise from any of you?
i have enjoyed reading many of your posts and would love some feed back.
oh yeah, the car has 86,000 original miles and was owned by 1 woman.
