Replacement of engine oil

Replacement of engine oil requires the following tool:

  – an osmotrovy hole or a hydraulic automobile jack with false goats;
  – a set of replaceable face heads for removal of a cover of an oil filter and a carving stopper of a masloslivny opening;
  – an oil pan (if oil is not pumped out) with a capacity at least at 8 l of oil.

The following quickly wearing out details are required:

  – in that case if oil is not pumped out: an aluminum or copper sealing ring for a carving stopper of a masloslivny opening (it is sometimes delivered together with an oil filter);
  – the filtering boss of an oil filter.

Depending on the engine fill in from 5,8 to 7,5 liters of engine oil. For the diesel, respectively, from 6 to 7 liters. Apply only engine oil recommended by Mercedes.

Amount of the replaced oil
4-cylinder petrol engine
5,8 l
6-cylinder petrol engine
7,5 l
2,0 l diesel engine
6,0 l
2,2 l diesel engine
6,5 l
2,5 l diesel engine
7,0 l

Oil should be replaced once a year. If during this period the car passes more than 15 000 km, then oil should be replaced after a run 15 000 km. At the same time the filtering boss is at the same time replaced.

At severe conditions of operation, such as trips on short distances, rather frequent launches of the cold engine and very dusty road conditions, it is necessary to replace oil and an oil filter through shorter periods.

At the petrol engine engine oil can be pumped out at gas station by means of the probe through a masloizmeritelny tube. Do not throw out uncontrolledly fulfilled a little and do not mix it with household garbage because irreparable injury thereby is caused to the environment as, for example, pollution of ground waters.
