Unless the oil pan is badly damaged then I would not replace it. Tell your technician that you would like the gasket replaced and a new oil plug installed. See if this doesn't change the price to something a bit more reasonable. Hope this helps. Good luck.

    RTV is the type of silicone that is used to add to gaskets to help them seal. I have treated many major problems that have ben caused by over use of RTV products and only recommend it to be used sparingly.

Correct! Remove the pan, install new gasket and replace oil.
If you just cheap, use RTV. Can be done at home, it costs you
less than $60.

How much oil do i put in my truck right after i do an oil change auto zone said 3 buckets of oil . but isnt that too much for an ford f250 94-95


The most these trucks take is six and a half U.S. quarts of oil.The safest way to know for sure is to drain all the oil out, remove and install a new oil filter, then install five quarts of your preferred oil.Start the vehicle up and let it run for thirty seconds, then turn it off.Pull the dipstick out and check the level with the engine not running, then top off the oil as necessary.Run it for five minutes to verify that there are no oil leaks, Then Happy Motoring!!! Hope I could help!!!

How to change oil in 2004 mercedes e500 sedan


this is a bit of a loaded question while draining the oil and replacing the filter (up front, top right of engine) it requires 8.5 quarts Mobile 1 0-20 oil, to get a read on the level there is no dip stick, you have to after putting in 6 quarts, start your car, then turn it off, put your key in the accessory position scroll through your screen on the dash to find oil level, it will tell you to wait for about 15 minutes until obtains the proper level reading then it will tell you how much more oil to add.
and it will take another 15 to get verification of the proper level obtained.

HOW TO CHANGE OIL AND FILTER ON A 2007 BENZ 230 ,why does the local service center want 120.00 to do it


The dealer will usually charge double with it would cost for you to buy the oils and do it yourself because of the labor involved....

This only applies to 2001-2005 (I-4 supercharged engines) or w203 chasis. It might be the similar for other C-class models.

Tools Needed:
1. 27 mm socket or a cresent wrench
2. Small flat head screwdriver
3. Funnel
4. 8mm socket *
5. 1/2 inch socket *
6. Lift Jack*
7. Oil collection pan*

* Optional tools, only needed if you plan to drain the oil. If you **** the oil out these tools are not needed.


Parts/Supplies Needed:
1. Oil Filter (MB Part # A 271 180 00 09). My dealer provided a new drain plug washer the filter.
2. Oil (Mobile One 0-40) C230 (I4 SC) needs 5.8-6.0 quarts.


Procedure:
1. Locate the oil filter and slightly loosen it, DO NOT remove it at this time. This will allow the oil in the filter to flow back to the oil pan. (See Photos 1 &2 below)
2. Jack up the car and remove plastic engine covers on the bottom of the car with 8mm socket.**
3. Located oil pan drain plug and remove plug with 1/2" socket (See Photo 3 below) Make sure you have the oil collection pan under drain, because the oil will come flowing out fast.**
4. As the oil is draining out, remove the oil filter from engine bay.
5. Remove oil filter cartridge (this may take a little force) and three rubber o-rings. Replace oil filter cartridge and replace the three o-rings (See Photo 4 below) Coat the new o-rings with some new oil.
6. Install drain plug with new washer and tighten to the proper torque spec (24N/m) or 1/2 turn past finger tight.
7. Install oil filter into engine bay. DO NOT over tighten! Tight to the proper torque spec (24 N/m) or if you do NOT have a torque wrench tight a 1/4 turn past hand tight.
8. Remove oil cap and input 5.25 quarts of oil using the funnel. (The reason why you should NOT add the entire 5.8 quarts is because there is still some residual oil in the engine and it's not good to over fill. You can easly add oil, pain to take it out)
9. After putting in 5.25 qts, turn ignition key to position 2 (radio and heater/AC comes on) for 10 seconds. This will allow the oil pump to start pumping the oil into the empty filter. Then start the engine and let it run for one minute and turn off car and remove key.
10. Re-Intsall plastic engine covers on the bottom of the car with 8mm socket and lower jack(s). **

Changing oil and filter


If you have never changed your oil before use care:

0.) Safely Jack up vechile
1.) remove oil filler cap
2.) remove oil drain plug on oil pan
3.) Let oil drain into a container
4.) Flush a quart of through with the drain plug removed to get any deposits out.
5.) remove and drain oil filter
6.) install new oil filter(make sure you put some oil on the filters gasket by hand)
7.)Install oil drain plug
8.) Re-fill with oil
9.) Put oil filler cap back on

Hope this helps and again use with care if you have never turned a wrench before, people get hurt easily by being careless while working under a car.
