Oil leaking on 97' C280

I have a major oil leak on my 97 C280. I just want to know where is the common place the oil leaks on a c280. Could it be the oil pan gasket? Please someone give me advice.

RE: Oil leaking on 97' C280

It's been a while since I had my C-class I'm not even sure what model it was. I do remember that there was a consistant problem with the head gasket leaking oil down the side of the engine. There was even a recall on this item. I had mine done under "exetended warranty repair" even thought it was out by a year or so. Check the right front side of the engine where the cylinder head bolts to the block. It's a little difficult to see but start there.

Try a search in W202 C Class forum with "oil leak c280".

There is quite a bit of information there.
