Piston Slap: Modulating the R107's transmission leak? | Hagerty Media

David writes: I have a 1983 Mercedes 380SL with 70K miles that on rare occasions blows a tremendous amount of white smoke. It's really like a smoke screen. It only does this a couple of times a summer. All other times it runs fine. The car is stored winters.
