Post 2001 ml320 engine oil leak

Hello everyone, I have a 2001 ml with 113,000 miles on it, and I bought it brand new. I have an engine oil leak on the back where the bell housing is mounted to the engine. The other day when I was servicing the starter unit and when it was removed I noticed the oil residue around the frame where the starter mounts to the engine and it is coming from the inside and not out side. And I can tell you when I am under the truck and looking up only the right side is wet, not the left side. And I have checked everything. The valve cover is dry, and the fly wheel is also dry. Thanks for the help.

If you have a technical question, it is more likely to be answered in the w163 forum than here. This is just a place to introduce yourself. Welcome to benzworld. I am sure someone in the w163 forum can help you.
