Pete; thats unusual for a few years old model.
If you are using Dinosaur Oil please do not use it.
MB Owners Manual calls for Full Synthetic.
If your confused as to what brand to use, ie: Mobil1, Castrol, Amsoil, Valvoline, then stay with the one MB uses, Mobil 1 Full Synthetic 0W40
Is that right guys?
If I was in your shoes, and I have been, I would go do it myself. Because you see; I trust myself more than anyone I know
Recommend you get Mobil 1 Full Synthetic & New Stealership Oil Filter
If your not comfortable doing it yourself then get the Stealership to do it for you.
Don't wait any longer.
Look; your car is not going to die using Dinosaur Oil, but IT WON'T HELP!
You have a fine vehicle. Keep it running good with the good stuff.
