small oil leak..

hi guys,

this is on my 1990 560SEC.
when i was at the mechanic last week, he said that my small oil leak was from a sender/level thing that could be changed when we drop the oil pan..?
I think the small leak is from the passenger side of the engine.

any idea what this might be ?

thinking of doing it myself.

RE: small oil leak..

apparently this can be common with the 560SEC's I noticed a mention on another merc site where a recommendation of painting shellac on the head gasket at a "weak point", I stand corrected if any mechanics are on line and this turns out to be'hogwash'. Ours burns the odd drop now and then on the exhaust manifold, cannot tell which side this is happening however. just he smell of oil drops.
