1989 300SE Oil Change Help
Just bought this car without a manual included. I have no idea if I am even in the correct posting area (if not, please forgive me) or not but here goes.
Since there is no maintenance history, I am starting now at 142K with a new air filter (that was an easy one since it was black) oil change, tune-up, fuel filter and wiper blades. Which reminds me, how do I turn on the wipers at the headlights or do they turn on when the main wipers are turned on?
Anyway, I digress, I have replaced the air filter, new spark plugs are in gapped at .032. The question I have is, where is the oil pan drain plug? I raised up the front and got underneath but for the life of me I couldn't find it. Do I need to take the plastic shield under the engine off or not? If someone can guide me where to look I would appreciate it.
Also, when I picked up the oil today, the autozone rep showed me this car needed 0W-30 and I bought Mobil 1. After getting home I searched Mobil's web site and it states 0W-40. What one should I be using?
Thanks for whatever help you can offer.
