Oil Change - SLK230

Did this today... 30 minutes. A few pix for those not sure. Used about 6 litres, just filled to the top mark on dipstick.

1. Loosen filler and filter caps.
2. Put in sucker and pump (20 pumps on mine)
3. Few more pumps and wiggle end to ensure all oil out and lift out and up so tube drains.
4. Remove filter and cap as one unit.
5. Clip new filter into cap.
6. Replace O ring if req.
7. Replace filter assy. Nip up tight just enough so it cant come undone.
8. Fill with new oil (put 5 litres in 1st) Quicker to put in thru filler cap in rocker cover than thru filter housing.IMO
9. Replace filler cap.
10.Start engine, run for 10 secs then stop.
11. Check level then fill with approx 1 litre until up to 1/2 to full on dip stick after 1 min or so.
12. Recheck for tools etc, leaks, mess anf close hood.
13. Recheck next morning in you want.

Where'd you buy the pump/"suck-the-oil-out" thing? I'm guessing a $30 item at an auto parts store, right?

50.00 bucks for similar 2 gal pump at tractor supply, or most parts places, not nearly as nice as bazzles but they work ok, good for lawnmowers, tractors etc. wouldnt do without it now.

Pretty sure the MB dealers change the oil this way (suck versus drain) although the X-fire manuals I have (same engine) state the procedure is to drain. What's the preferred method (sorry if this has been asked a zillion times - it probably has been)?

I use this one - no pumping; set it up and press the button:

Garage Pro 12-VOLT OIL CHANGE PUMP : JC Whitney: Auto Parts & Accessories

Suck out as per dealer. The amount left in there is not any hassle. Mine is a vac pump. 20 pulls on handle ... cost here in Oz $88 now.
No power req so can be used anywhere, boats, fishtanks, sullage etc ...

schaf1945,you can get the same pump as bazzle uses at:

pelaproducts dot com

the model is a PL 650 and it will extract 6.5 liters which is perfect for the 230 4 cylinder sump.I got one a while back and it will spoil you on oil changes.It also works well for smaller,US engines,that typically have 4 quart sumps.

They retail around $85 but you can find them on line a little cheaper.
