Check Engine Light

(2003 Mercedes-Benz CLK500)
in Modesto, CA on December 15, 2009
My check engine light is on & a small bit of oil/fluid on a hose running on the drivers side that has a mesh cover on it. The fluid is where the hose connects to a small box close to the fan and also oil in a tray type thing where the hose connects close to the side of the engine. The valve covers and manifold have no signs of oil. There is a slight smell of something burning sometimes while driving the car. Feel free to ask any questions to pinpoint the problem, as my description may be vague.
