Just a simple question on the recommended engine oil and oil filter for my wifes 2003 C230 Kompressor........The MBZ shop said Mobil 1 is the right oil but could not answer the weight.. SAE 5W-30 or 10W-30??.. We live in S. Cailf and mostly take short drives to the market, etc... Only an occassional 50-100 trip....Also, I like to know the part # of the recommended oil filter from MBZ.. I won't ask for a x-reference, but if someone wants to post a "just-in-case" number, that would be ok........................Thanks in adavance, Tony

Zero on the owners amnual or "offical MB products"

Lynn,

The owners manual page that lists the recommended oil is blank for that part..It seems to list everything else though. A search on "google" lends nothing except you guys, and my MB dealer knows even less......I figured I could get the answer here....I don't believe Mobil 1, the recommended oil, comes in 0-40W... Seems only 5W-30 or 10W-30....So, can I get that simple answer, or is this the wrong forum?.............................Tony

Around here 0W-40 is available at Autozone, Wal-Mart and some other places, although my dealer uses Castrol Syntech 5W-40. There should be seperate booklet for the autorized service products. Can't think of the exact name of the booklet. I usually keep it near the computer, but it is in the car right now, and I am too lazy to get dressed to go get it. :)
