This is too funny!

Or is it not funny at all as MBUSA never knew any oil leaking problem on the M103 engines?

MBUSA may get this oil diaper idea after all. If they install this diaper on the M103 and M104 powered cars, then they can really deny the oil leaking problem in straight faces.

"Where is the oil leak? Do you see it on your garage floor? All MB engines are sealed with diapers (after extensive research and development at the $100 billion Daimler-Chrysler Research Center) and no oil should leak to your garage floor. This is the best innovation we have had in the history of auto-making. Now the Japanese will copy us but they first have to re-design their engine gaskets so they leak. Then they can be the copy cat to install out engine diapers."

LOL.

I think a more creative approach over soaking it up with Pampers
would be to re-design the lower panel to actually hold oil and add a sump pump [ ecu controlled , of course, fault code and all], and
simply pump it back into the oil filler .

Arthur:

You may want to file a patent over this as MBUSA may do just that. If they cannot seal the engine using normal engineering approaches they might do just as you suggested. Now the oil capacity of the MB cars will increase so the oil does not have to be changed every 60kmi! And MB will have the only "open air" engine in the industry. Another invention! It also makes oil change easy but that is every 60kmi.

Yes , plus they can then explain that "They are supposed to LEAK"--- it's engineered into the design....

Oh, wait a minute. This is only MB's (really Arthur's) invention so only MBs do that, at least now until others copy MB invention.

Then double that up. Use a two-sump systems. If the top sump leak, there is another one below it to back it up. It is engineered like no other cars in the world.

Does this system sound familar when compared to the braking system in the new W211s?

I think I have it..

First, make it an "Option"

Then, as it works out, Cal will Mandate it.

Then they will make it a standard Feature, so we all will have a Leak Free Benz ...

NAAAAAH .....

We won't see Leak-Free til they come out with the Oil-Less engine

Some day, MB will design an engine that is lubricated by German air.

You know, by definition, a fluid is something that flows. So oil and air both fit in quite well into that definition.

Plus, German air has one outstanding characteristic when compared to oil, dino or synthetic.

It has an infinite Viscosity Index (VI) as its viscosity doe not change with temperature. So it does not thin out like oil. Using German air, the cars gets the lubricating air as soon as it is started and then it maintains that same viscosity at operating temperature.
