Mercedes Lubrication Specs:

Post by cmitch on Tue Apr 01, 2008 6:21 pm

Your Mercedes-Benz requires specific fluids to avoid engine failure and maintain optimum performance. If the engine oil does not meet the standards for your vehicle, engine damage is possible which is not covered by the Mercedes-Benz New Vehicle Limited Warranty. Please choose your vehicle's Model Year from the list for detailed information on the proper fluids for use in your vehicle.
Model Year
1997 and earlier
1998 to 2004
2005 and newer

Where do I find the specs for 1997 and earlier cars and 2005 and newer.
I found the link http://www.whnet.com/4x4/oil.html but not sure how to read this.

For model year 2005+ use the ones listed under the headline:

Vehicles with the Mercedes Maintenance System starting with MY2005 can use 229.5 or 229.51 oils.

And for before model year 1997, use the ones listed under:

For Vehicles Without Flexible Service System: USA vehicles MY 1997 and earlier
