I recently bought a 96 C280 Sport with 84K, its high mileage for the year of the car but its been kept in great condition. After driving it a few weeks I noticed that on hot days I can faintly smell oil burning after I turn the car off and let it set for a few minutes. What it looks like to me is its leaking from the transmission onto the muffler and that of course is making the smell of burning oil. I'm far from a mechanic but to me thats what it looks like. My questions are, is this a liable possibility or am I not seeing whats really happening? And, if it is whats happening how much money is it going to take to get fixed? Thanks, Brad Bannister
