Sorry pal (SPX) only just seen your post above

I ended up taking the car to Merc-Land, dropped off yesterday and picked up tonight, they kindly loaned me a car in the meantime, it was 100% the oil cooler seals and they also replaced the oil cooler, the drive home was silky & smooth and there seemed to be more power too, very happy bunny

Yes I agree, and with the knowledge that the mechanic doing the job had done dozens of the same job
From what I gather, any mechanics that work on Mercedes regularly will have a lot of experience of fixing this fault!

Could well be the oil cooler seals , which is from below the oil cooler in the middle of the engines V , not visible easily , but runs down the back of the engine .
yes you definitely need an MB specialist (they will all have done it before ) .
I hope the monkeys that have nipped up the sump bolts haven’t caused more unnecessary problems .
Im sure someone will recommend a specialist soon
