hello just bought a c280 2000

Hello, I'm Kaitlin and I just bought my first MB =). A 2000 c280 so nothing special but I have driven it for 7500 miles and just did my first synthetic oil change. Mobil 1 0w40. Then my check engine light went off and I figured it was a cylinder in a misfire as my car has been running a little sketchy. Upon getting my codes read there was a various amount of codes read and was wondering if anyone can give me some details on what there opinion on the problems maybe. I have a pretty handy father who wants to help as much as we can and will be driving my other vehicle until these problems are sorted out. Engine codes are P0161, which i was told is an o2 sensor. 301,303,302,300, which upon googling i found to be cylinder misfires, assuming i need to replace spark plugs as my milage is at about that time. Any other suggestions? 156, 130 were the last 2 codes that were pulled up. Assuming these were more sensors but any information that can provided will be appreciated. Also, my car has been burning oil slowly and smells of burnt oil after long drives. Thanks for any help

At your next oil change use Mobil 1 5W-40 and this should reduce the amount of oil burn.
