I did a search but couldn't come up with anything here. I have heard in the past that the inline 6 in the S320 and E320 are notorious for oil leaks. Can anyone share more information on this? I have a family member with a 98 S320 that is now producing oil leaks on the garage floor.

Thanks in advance for any light you can shed on this.

Head gasket failure causing oil leaks is very common on the M104. However, the 98 has the new V6. I have not heard of any problem like this on the newer engine. Also, is the car still under warranty?

Here is a link for the thread

Oops, I forget that the S class still had the M104 that year.
