Comment 2
Don't remember what the bulletin says, would have to read it again, But welcome to the world of Mercedes Benz. They do a lot with their engineering to design that their fluids and such only be used. When they owned Chrysler they had components manufactured in such a manner if you didn't use the Anti-Freeze designed for that vehicle, the components would corrode. Good Luck and it's 8 and 1/2 qts. -
