Is an oil cooler missing from engine bay?
I was browsing around the sites the other day, and I took notice of the fact that the W163 series have an oil cooler next to the oil filter housing. Is this true for all models and all years?
I have a 2002 ML320, and today I opened the hood and noticed something that was odd to me. There is just an empty spot next to the oil filter housing, with nothing at all.
Am I going crazy or is there actually something supposed to be there? Here are some pics to clarify.
On the third close-up pic, it looks to me like there had been a piece of engine there before, and someone broke it off. The jagged edges of the metal just doesn't look right.
What are your opinions on this?
