There appears to be a type of clear-coat finish on the valve cover on my '95 C280. However, the coating has turned to a brownish color in some areas. What could have caused this?

Arjay,

Pretty much the effects of heat. I've seen plenty of covers do this--even on newer cars.

This is the coating that they use to ship. It is called cosmoline.(sp?)/

You can use a strong wheel cleaner to get it off.
