2010 Mercedes-Benz E350 4MATIC ProblemsOil Seepage on Back of the Cylinder Heads
The Mercedes Benz E350 4matic may have engine oil seeping or leaking from the back of the cylinder heads. This is commonly misdiagnosed as leaking valve covers.
On the back of the cylinder heads there are three, in total, plastic expansion plugs that plug access ports to the camshafts. These plugs are well known for seeping oil, and leaking if left unattended. The oil will run down the back of the engine and eventually make it to the ground.
Replacement of these three plastic plugs is extremely simple, and should be done as regular maintenance. The recommended interval for replacement is every 60,000 miles.
The power steering reservoir designed for the Mercedes Benz E350 4Matic commonly leaks power steering fluid causing a screeching sound when turning the steering wheel, especially when the vehicle is stopped. The power steering light may illuminate on the dash for more severe leaks.
This is caused by cracking in the plastic reservoir, or a hardened, brittle seal between the power steering reservoir and power steering pump.
Remediation involves replacing the power steering fluid reservoir, power steering fluid, bleeding the system of air, and replacement of the seal between the reservoir and power steering pump.
When starting the engine after sitting for several hours, a knocking sound may be heard for several seconds. This is a common issue with the 2004-2010 Mercedes Benz E350 4Matic. There are three common problems that can cause this sound to occur:
-Oil pressure building too slowly, allowing for movement between the crankshaft and crankshaft bearings
The remediation for these problems can be crankshaft bearing replacement with correct size, replacement of timing components, or balance shaft replacement.

2010 Mercedes-Benz E350 4MATIC RecallsDriver's Frontal Air Bag Inflator Ruptures And Sprays Metal Fragments
The driver's frontal air bag inflator may deploy the air bag with excessive pressure, resulting in the inflator rupturing and causing metal debris to be sprayed onto vehicle occupants. Dealers will replace the driver's frontal air bag module free of charge to resolve the concern.
Mercedes Benz is recalling 2010 C-Class, model 204; E-Class, model 212; and 2010–2011 E-Class Coupe/Cabriolet, model 207 vehicles due to a loss of power steering fluid that could result in power steering system failure. Owners may not have sufficient control of the vehicle in areas like parking lots, thus increasing the chance of a crash. Dealers will check and re-torque the connection fitting, free of charge.
