I am one of the unfortunate souls who purchased the 3.5 engine diesel.
At 70K, the car is using one qt every 300 to 400 miles. I am now
dealing directly with MB. The local dealer performed a compression and
leaks test with the following results: the cylinder # will be followed
by the compression/leak down: (1)400/5% (2)440/10% (3) 460/10%
(4)480/70% (5)480/40% (6)450/10%
Anyone have any ideas about what these values reveal?
