05 350 Oil leak already
Well I'm a dummy I should have checked the car over better before I purchased it but it was so cold out I rushed a little.
I just noticed a little puddle of oil in my garage.
I tried to locate the leak with the car up on ramps but I cant seem to find it. The oil is running down the drivers side catalytic converter.
So I would imagine it's a valve cover gasket
Is this common on the 350's?
I'm still under warranty till may of 09 so I made an appointment for Tuesday to bring it in. I needed to take it in anyway since the drivers side heated seat is out.
This is the only other car I've had leak oil since my 1981 camaro when I was 18 very disappointing in a MB.
