General notes

Never use engine oil or an oil filter of a specification other than is necessary to fulfill the prescribed service intervals. Do not change the engine oil or oil filter in order to achieve longer replacement intervals than those prescribed. You could otherwise cause engine damage or damage to the exhaust gas aftertreatment.

Follow the instructions in the service interval display regarding the oil change.

Otherwise, you may damage the engine and the exhaust gas aftertreatment.

The engine oils are matched to the performance of Mercedes-Benz engines and service intervals. For this reason, only use engine oils and oil filters that are approved for vehicles with a service system.

For a list of approved engine oils and oil filters, consult an authorized Mercedes-Benz Center or go to the Internet site http://bevo.mercedes-benz.com (USA only).

The table shows which engine oils have been approved for your vehicle.

Restriction for AMG vehicles: only


Restriction for AMG vehicles: only engine oils SAE 0W-40 or SAE 5W-40 may be used.

MB approval is indicated on the oil containers.

Additives


Additives

Do not use any additives in the engine oil.

This could damage the engine.

Engine oil viscosity

Viscosity describes the flow characteristics


Viscosity describes the flow characteristics of a fluid. If an engine oil has a high viscosity, this means that it is thick; a low viscosity means that it is thin.

Select an engine oil with an SAE (viscosity) classification suitable for the prevailing outside temperatures. The table shows you which SAE classifications are to be used. The low-temperature characteristics of engine oils can deteriorate significantly, e.g. as a result of aging, soot and fuel deposits. It is therefore strongly recommended that you carry out regular oil changes using an approved engine oil with the appropriate SAE classification.

Refrigerant of the air-conditioning system

Never use refrigerant R 12 (CFC) or mineral lubricants. Otherwise, you could damage the air-conditioning system.

The air-conditioning system is filled with R134a (HFC) refrigerant and a special PAG lubricant.
