1970 250c w114 HELP!!!????

Hello, are there any threads here on how to change the oil filter on my 250c? Please point me in the right direction?

Also, I bought this car some 12 years ago when it was in pretty good condition. Some 9 years ago I moved to nyc and left the car under my desert cabin's car port in california where it has been sitting ever since. Can anyone suggest what I need to do to get it started again. The tires are flat and it needs a new battery, and of course I'm trying to figure out how to change the oil but other than that what do I need to do to get it started? Is it even worth getting it going again? I remember it was a gas guzzler and it did need some carburetor work when I parked it. HELP

I don't know much about the 250C specifically but look for a large canister with a bolt at the end of it on the side of the engine and that is your oil filter.

As for the rest of it, check the fuel pump and carbs...I have no idea where to start with the latter.

Toss all the gas and clean out your gas tank. Blow all the gunk out of the gas lines too, and replace the filter.

Replace the oil. Prior to starting, remove each spark plug and squirt a little oil into each cylinder so that you have lubrication when you restart it.

I'd replace the coolant too.
