type of oil to use

I just bought a 1997 benz S420 and I need to know what kind of oil goes in it. Also any information on the filter location and procedure if outside of the norm of oil changes. That info would help. Thanks

omigod. He said "oil". Let the games begin.

Use whatever weight your owner's manual recommends. Brand can be whatever is on sale.
