Question about 2002 Mercedes-Benz S-Class
I changed my exhaust pipe and the silencers but after completion of the job, after approximately 1hour of driving , smoke starts coming out from the gearbox section, as if something is burning inside...It was just a small smoke which lasted for 2hours continuously , no fire was seen. Thank You
If any electric welding was used on the car during the exhaust pipe work and the ground clamp wasn't in the proper location, there is a possability that your gearbox might have been damaged (fried).

Seek out another mechanic. White smoke from the exhaust is a symptom of coolant entering the combustion chamber. Most of the time this is caused by a blown head gasket. A loss of coolant with no apparent leak, a white foamy substance on the underside of the oil fill cap, oil level overfull, and air bubbles escaping from the radiator are other symptoms of a blown gasket or cracked head. Stop driving this vehicle until you have this diagnosed and repaired. A compression test will verify this. Serious engine damage will occur if you indeed have an internal leak so make sure one way or the other.

They may have added too much oil -- a 2004 MB ml350 with a 3.7L engine should take only 8.5 Quarts (including what goes in the oil filter) -- Exactly 8.5 Quarts, no more, no less. You may be able do check the oil level by using the onboard computer - pushing the buttons on the steering wheel - follow the directions in the owners manual on how to check the oil level.
