2 questions about my used Mercedes

just got a 99 E320 S/W AWD and there are two things that i noticed. last night when i had the key in the on position there was a message that said, "Display Oil Level?" what does that mean?

the other question i have is why when i am idle (traffic, sitting in line at mcdonalds drive thru etc) does my temperature gauge begin to move higher (this has never happened on any other car i have owned)? is this a bad sign or is the sensor very sensitive? normally the car drives around 80, but when i sit idle it heads to the next line above that. doesnt quite reach it, but it gets close.

thanks

You check your engine oil level this way.

Temp fluctuation is normal.

BTW, you can (and should) get an owner's manual. Dealer has/can get them and they aren't expensive. Will answer most of your questions.
