CLK550 Mystery Oil Leak

6659 Views 11 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  rudeney
Almost every day, I find a small puddle (maybe a teaspoon) of oil under the car. It's basically right under the left side catalytic converter. It seems to happen after driving. I've removed the bottom engine covers and tried to find the source, but I can't. I see it on the steering column universal joint and the left cat (I sometimes smell it on the cat while driving). I see no signs of oil around the valve cover or even the head. I think I might see traces of dampness around the top of the exhaust manifold, but it's not wet enough to be leaking this much. Any ideas?

Engine cover just pulls up. It can seem stubborn because it fits tight over the air intake/MAF housing athe back. Make sure it reseats fully there when you put it back on.
Got it!!! Thanks! Now if I can only get my head behind to find the plug...:mad:
Handheld mirror and a flashlight. You can see them easy then.
