2001 CL600


My name is Sam and I'm in Southern California. I just acquired (gifted from a relative) a 2001 CL600 with 131,000 miles.

The car is not driveable as it has a major oil leak coming from the engine cooler (what else?), but it was free after all. My relative just did not want to spend the time or effort to fix it (money no object for him).

The plan is to install a low miles engine (less than 40K) rather than fix the original one. Good idea? Bad idea? Am in over my head?
