i have oil leak mercedes benz e320 1997, probably head gasket or timing cover
I had coolant/oil leak while car was under warranty. At 100,000 miles it developed a major external oil leak. Repair is a new head and timing chain cover gasket. While the parts are not too expensive ($75.00) the time to remove and replace the head is about 14+ hrs. You will need special tools for some operations. If you are not a mechanic, don't even try it. This is common problem with the 6 cyl engine and oil leaks occour at the right side of the timing chain cover and the head gasket.
