My oil cooler has been leaking since 41,000 miles and I have read other Mercedes Benz S600 owners have the same problems. To fix this problem I would have to pay a shop 4k dollars. If this is a common problem for this car I think Mercedes Benz should have a recall on this issue and fix the problem. I leak up to a quart of oil every 2 weeks.

I have a 2001 Mercedes Benz S600. The vehicle only has 76,000 miles. The engine oil cooler is leaking, and this can cause a fire. There is a lot of other people who have the same problem with this make and model. It seems to be a manufacture default. The leaking oil can run on the catalytic converter and cause a serious fire. Mba should have a recall on this problem.
Oil leak from oil cooler seems to be a chronic problem on this model car.
2001 Mercedes Benz S600 with 50,000 miles on it. Engine oil cooler leaking since 40k miles, now it is leaking profusely, Mercedes Benz wants $4000 to fix problem.
I have an oil leak which my mechanics tells me is the oil cooler and to repair is estimate to cost $5000. 00. I hear from other owners of the same vehicle with same issue.
The Mercedes Benz dealer informed me that I had an oil cooler and abc hose leak on my 2001 S600. The cost to repair is unbelievable. About $7,500. In reading the mbz forum this appears to be a common occurrence without any help from mbz. The failure for the oil cooler leak can lead to a fire, and the abc hose leak can lead to malfunction of the active body control system causing the car to drastically lower at the effected wheel. The frequency of this problem should be covered by a manufacturer recall. This is a death hazard to me and my family. I am not driving the car at this time due to the cost to repair and the problem of injury or death.
Car only has 64k miles and has a bad oil leak. My guess is the oil cooler. For the price of this car I should not have a puddle of oil on my garage floor.
Oil cooler leak on my 2002 S600, and I found out that this a very common problem on these cars (2000-2002 v12 engines) and a very expensive repair that Mercedes Benz should cover or at least a large percentage of the repair. I just found out about your website so I decided to file a complaint. I took the car to the Mercedes Benz dealer and they diagnosed it and said the rear main seal needed to be replaced. I paid over $1100. 00 for this repair and took the car back 3 times within a week and a half because the oil leak continued only to find out the oil cooler is what is leaking and not the rear main seal.
The mercedes S600 has a design flaw that causes a major oil leak from the oil cooler that is embedded inside the engine. This requires the intake and heads to be removed to replace the oil cooler at a cost of approximately $5k. Special care must be taken to clean the oil from the wiring harness, transmission and areas that has been soaked by the oil leak. This problem seems to re-occur every 50-100k miles. As a known problem, mercedes has not assumed any responsibility for this problem.
