One which is changed frequently ! :thumbsup:what is the best engine oil for w201?
Really ? Why?The best oil is valvoline 10-60 raicing
If you happen to live in a really cold country, have a brand new engine and it never runs hot then you'll get away with 10w30.Mobil recommends Mobil 1 0w 30. Isn't it too thin to hold up with those ol enginesy?
I'll change the transmission oil at about 24,000 - 25,000 miles (major service interval) which is what Mercedes recommends, though many people leave it in much longer. I just use straight ATF with no extra additives - you don't want to put a friction inhibitor in an auto box ! My preference is for Duckhams lubricants as they seem to show slightly better results in lab tests.thank for ur view. how often u service ur auto-transmisson?? what types of lubs u use?
Basically it would take just far too loong to list everything. Your local friendly Mercedes stealership should be able to give you the 'official' Mercedes list of service points if you really want it.what elses i need to pay attention during servicing the car?
You are using the perfect oil for your condition. Good choicedirtyhands said:I live in Atlanta, Georgia and have an hour long commute each way, in the summer its around 100deg F and I'm running 85-95mph all the way with engine at around 3000rpm's on a 5spd tranny. I run Castrol GTX 20W-50, my engine purrs and doesn't use much oil, I have 156,000 miles on it!
