Question S600 W220 2001 flaws

Hi

I am in the process of having the exhaust, gearbox and engine removed (by an MB dealer) to repair an ABC hose leak. I have already had the oil cooler repaired and as the whole lot is coming out, I wanted to ask if there is anything else I should get done whilst it can be got at.

Thanks in advance.

With the engine removed, the dealer should tell you if the engine mounts, oil seals, or other things needing to be replaced.

Ditto to oil seals or gaskets. From what I've read all the 12 cylinder engines develop oil leaks and typically after the warranty expires. Have them check your oil cooler too. Plus have a look at the W220 forum to see if they have a sticky for common issues.
