Hi,

There is oil leaking from the oil cap filler area, so I replaced the cap with a new one, leak is still there but not like before. Anyone have this problem, is there a fix for this or is this normal?


Thanks.

I had this problem, replaced valve cover gaskets, crush washers, ect. 2x thinking the first time I may have tightened them too tight.It was a slow leak which mimicked a valve cover leak! But my MB dealer gave me a new cap ( maybe even from a newer model, very hard to get off , but now no leak).

Well, I don't have any leaks from the valve cover gasket area, but just small leak coming out from the oil filler area.
