Self Leveling Oil
I am new hear and I have 3 450SEL's (4.5),
2 of them are for parts,and the other I drive,none are for sale,yet.
I am looking to fix the rear leveling mechanisms.
I have replaced the bar that goes to the back and connects to the valve because it snapped !
But I cannot find the correct oil to use for the canister in the engine bay.
Someone mentioned I can use any automatic transmission oil, or Hydraulic-Jack oil if I ever get stuck.
I am also looking to read something on the correct procedure to adjust the rear leveling valve after I find the correct oil.
The people at a spare parts counter did not understand about MB Self leveling, and I am finding in most cases the mention of MB shows a "fear" in their face.
But I will not drive anything else but my 450SEL
Nice car, but I have only had these cars for a little over 3 months and discovering new things all the time.
I have to fix the oil problem first though.
