Hello from Boston Massachusetts :)

I知 a big fan of this forum, I learned a lot from it.
I have two questions:
1- I drive a 2006 C280 4matic, I知 about to tackle the oil change myself, the manual that I have and the one I down loaded both state that the oil dipstick is located in the back of the engine. However, I知 a little confused to why is my dipstick is located in the front of the engine. (Is it the oil dipstick??).
There痴 what it looks like a dipstick in the back of the engine, but it is covered with a black plug that has a red tab on it!!
2- Is there a reason why is the 280 IS NOT MENTION ON THE W203 TAB
I copied and pasted the following; there is no mention of c280!!!
展203 C-Class (183 Viewing)
2001-2006: C200 CDI, C220 CDI, C270 CDI, C180, C200, C230, C240, C320.
Thank you for all you do to keep us well informed about our rides, we greatly appreciate it

To the best of my knowledge the C280 4 matic and the C300 4 matic are W204 2007 - What is your vin # and I will take a look?

Thanks for the vin # and yest it is a W203 first delivered on the 3/4/06. Now it has the 272 engine and the dipstick should be at the front of the engine. The dipstick at the rear should be for the transmission, most cars do not have the dipstick inside the tube, you have to buy it seperate, the tube is plugged off.

Yours is the 722.6 transmission and therefore has a dipstick tube, cars with the 722.9 do not have a dipstick tube and the engine dipstick is at the rear.

ERIC.
