Re: 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.

The best engine oil for your car is what is specified in the owner's manual. There should also be writing on the top of the oil fill cap saying what kind of oil is needed. This type of oil is specified because that is what Mercedes designed the motor to use.
If you don't know how to change the oil, let a garage do it, there are no instructions in the owners manual for changing the oil, (drain the oil from the oil pan, remove the oil filter and replace with a new one, depending on your climate, use 5w-30w or 10w-40w and don't buy the cheapest oil filter, you have a Benz.

front of the engine. on top. If you cant find the filter, what makes you qualified to change the oil. With the money it took to buy a car like this, why get cheap? Be sure to use the correct oil, motor oil is special for that car.
changing oil can be real fun thats one the things i look over before i buy a car. If the guy made the car so hard to work on why would i want own this car. Buy fram filters thats painted crusty on the bottom so you can hand tighten them. Always after you take off the old filter to look for see if the gasket came of the old filter. Dobble gasket mean big leak and hurting your car. Put some oil on the new filter gasket to get a good seal And slowly hand screw the filter you dont want to cross thread the holder the filter. i can tighten my filter so tight you dont need the wrench other take it off becuse if you use the wrench you could hurt the filter Look up your car find the correct filter wrench to take off the old one. I find best just buy a jack and jack stands if you cant see the filter and drain plug. Just buy a Hanes book they help you find ever thing on your cars at auto zone ore one the other stores with your year make and model And a handy tip i learned about oil and paint to get off your hands use corn oil and rag works great get off paint and old oil on your hands. it non toxic and then wash with normal soap
