Smile What type of oil is best

I have a 1976 w115 240D, and it gets pretty cold here in texas so what kind of oil would be best to put in it to help it start easier in the morning. Also how many quarts do i need to fill it with? Any help is appreciated

An oil with a low pour point, lke a 5w-xx will be best. Use an oil designed for diesels, since they've taken the zinc and phosphorus out of the gasoline oils. If you have a gasoline motor, I'd choose only Rotella.
