Mercedes call for in all temperatures5/50 W oil, in temperatures above 32 degrees F call for 20/40W, SF/CC, or SF/CD class oil.
8.5 quarts with an oil filter change. I always change the oil in my cars at 3000 miles, none call for synthetic oil, with synthetic oil I would still change the oil every 5000 miles.
Go see Ping or Ko at P and K Automotive 2598 Bayshore Blvd
San Francisco, CA 94134 (415) 742-2931 Have them change the oil and check all fluids They work on Mercedes and drive them themselves Go right down Geneva and make a left at Bayshore then left on Sunnydale its on the corner
Look in your owners manual for oil specs. If you don't have one, I would go with a 10w-30 oil, and change it and the filter every 3000 miles.
