Mercedes E240 W210 oil leak

Hi, just an intro as requested - great site. My name's Simon and I'm a guitarist by profession. I have a 1999 E240 W210 (great for gigs); it has a small oil leak at front/bottom of engine, looks like it's coming from the crank pulley, dropping a line of spots on the road every time I park - is this main seal perhaps, or possibly crank seal? I've spent all available money on the car due to other unexpected problems... also - temp gauge fluctuates, will go up in standing traffic on a hot day but not higher than around 95 degrees - no usual signs of head gasket problems (no oil in water and vice versa, temp goes down when moving, oil leak is too low in engine I think). Any help gratefully received. Thanks!
