Mercedes does not use steel filter cartriges like most other manufacturers. They use bolt on oil filter housings with a disposable filter element within. They are the top side of the engine and in recent years have a black plastic cap sometimes with a torque spec on it. On this engine I believe that it is at the front of the engine on the right hand side near the cooling fan cowl.

What size or type tool use to remove cover of oil filter housing and do you have to remove oil filter housing FROM the engine? THIS IS A 1998 MERCEDE BENZ E320


no you don't have to remove the oil filter housing. Mercedes Benz has a tool that fits right over the oil filter cap that is inexpensive or you can just use a oil filter wrench. On the in-line 6 cylinder motor its a little harder to fit a filter wrench back there so a claw type filter wrench might be easier to use.The Mercedes filter tool can be found online also.

CHANGING THE OIL IN A 2008 MERCEDES C350 WHICH OIL WEIGHT DO YOU USE?


Application:
Use in temperatures above 23 degrees

Note :
Valvoline SynPower Full Synthetic
20W-50 Motor Oil

System holds about 8 1/2 quarts
Once you are using a synthetic oil, that is the only oil you may use from know. Anything else WILL do damage to the seals in the engine. This engine also comes from the factory with synthetic oil. Use a Mercedes oil filter. Believe me please, there is a difference in how oil filters are made and an inferior oil or filter can cause major engine damage!

How to oil change 2005 Mercedes Benz E320 Cdi


Mercedes makes it easy! Get a 10 quart oil pump and draw the oil out of the dipstick tube. The oil filter is on top so can be removed with a filter wrench and easily replaced. No need to jack the car up or crawel under. No fuss no mess and a 10 minute oil change!!!

Where is the oil filter for 1998 e320 Mercedes Benz


This car does not use the common "spin on" style oil filter. It uses a cartridge style (common back in the 1950s and 60s) style oil filter. The filter housing is located on the top front of the engine on the driver's side. The filter element is accessed by removing the black plastic top of the filter housing. Wrap a rag around the plastic top and very carefully use a pair of slip joint ( aka Channelloc) pliers to remove the top of the housing. It is a normal right hand thread and screws off. The filter element is found inside.
