Mercedes-Benz E500 Oil Leaking From Oil Level Sensor

(5 reports)

An engine oil leak may develop from the oil level sensor. Replacement of the leaking sensor will commonly correct this concern.

I took my 2004 E500 4matic into the shop because it was leaking oil. Note; car does not leak oil when cold, must be warmed up to notice leak. My mechanic diagnosed the problem to a faulty Oil Level Sensor Unit ($100). However, they indicated that the oil pan gasket ($30-$50) must also be replaced and resealed to prevent further leakage. Apparently this is a common problem with E500's... unless, you drive yours like a grandma, then you might be able to avoid doing this repair. Overall, not too spendy for parts, it's the labor that gets ya!! all said and done It costed me %510 after taxes and labor. The price we pay to drive like a BOSS!! -
