Mercedes Oil Filter Housing Leak

Mercedes Oil Filter Housing Leak: The over tightening of oil filters cause the oil filter housing gasket to leak way before it should. The Cost to repair varies between models. The price of repair is $150 and up. It all depends on how many accessories need to be removed to get to the oil-housing gasket.

The Mercedes oil filter housing utilizes a rubber-gasket, which tends to get brittle and hardens over time. They tend to seep then leak. The oil filter housing is under highly extreme oil pressure. If the seal fails you will run out of oil in a few miles. If the red oil warning light starts to flash, always stop and have your oil level checked. Driving with very low oil can ruin an engine extremely fast. Don’t try to make it to an exit. Stop your car before and call us for a tow before the car stops by itself and more damage car occur.

To find the source of the leak we start on the top of your car’s engine. If you see oil leaks under your Mercedes, it could be oil leaking from the highest part of your engine and running down the engine collecting around the oil pan. One of the most common unneeded repairs is the oil pan gasket. At German Car Depo we use high-tech and very simple low-tech ways to find the exact leaking component. From using an electronic bore scope camera to sprinkling talcum powder we can see exactly where the leak originates. After the engine is cleaned and dried we can locate the most seeping and leaking oil filter housings. In the worst case scenarios, we add a safe ultraviolet dye to your oil and run the engine and take a black light and look for glowing spots where oil is leaking.

This is a common disclaimer on GCD invoice. “The Mercedes Oil Filter Housing is the highest part of the oil system. When seeping – leaking, it coats parts underneath with oil, down to the bottom of the engine, making it impossible to see if there are any other small leaks that might be lower. Many Auto Repair shops just sell you everything to cover their inability to properly find the root cause for the leaking seal or merely being a coating – residue from run-down effect from the bad Mercedes Filter Housing. At our customers choice and GCD does the Mercedes Oil Filter Housing first, and then cleans the engine runs or drive to see if additional leaks are happening that were covered in oil from past oil leaks. This is in an effort to save you money, by selling only what we are 100% sure is leaking”

One more example of a disclaimer used on an Invoice: “Your Mercedes Oil Filter Housing is leaking oil .The housing is under extreme pressure since it is directly fed from the engine oil pump. Continued running could result in a high pressure oil leak.X____Sighn your name here____. I am aware all of my oil could leak out in a few seconds if the seal fails.”

Mercedes Benz owners come to GCD from Boca Raton, Fort Lauderdale, Miami and the Florida Keys to have GCD repair oil leaks that have been fixed by other so-called German Repair shops.

Did the Mercedes Benz Dealer or another repair shop quote the cost to repair a crazy high price to change many more gaskets or seals then needed. Not to say it is not a good idea to change extra gaskets – seals that are located where parts need to come off anyway. But when some repairs add extra thousands of dollars that is not value what based service is all about.
