1997 Mercedes-Benz E300 Problems

Engine -- Verified

Fuel leaks can develop around the high pressure fuel injection pump.
The fuel lines around the fuel filter and the fuel pump also tend to
leak.

Drive Train -- Verified

High mileage vehicles may develop a leak from one or more of the transmission oil seals.

Engine -- Verified

Oil leaks can develop around the oil filter housing.

Heating & Air Conditioning -- Verified

A malfunctioning HVAC blower motor regulator can cause the blower motor to operate below the requested speed or not at all. Updated regulators are available; the blower motor and cover need to be replaced at the same time to upgrade the system.

Brakes -- Verified

The brakes may begin to squeak at about the 50 percent wear point. This is due to the size and material used for the brake pads and rotors.  The brake rotor surfaces become uneven, causing a lip to form at the outer edge. This will generally require replacement of the rotors when the pads are worn (pad life varies depending on driving style and terrain).
