What oil and how many quarts or liters? The Owners Manual doesn't say and only gives a Mercedes Benz part number for oil! Ha! My local generic auto shop can't find a listing for an oil filter or oil recommendation. Anyone who works at a dealership follow this forum? :shrug:

After emptying both the pan and removing/draining/inserting new filter, I've found that adding about 3.8 quarts will fill it to the low end of the dipstick's recommended level (triangle notch) and 4.4 quarts will fill it to the high end notch.


Here's a short thread about the 453 dipstick: https://www.smartcarofamerica.com/forums/f208/453-dip-stick-reading-125937/
Ah, thanks. That helps. Sounds like fresh oil fill was still dripping on one side of the stick. That happens in many cars.
OK, 4+ quarts is a start.
