I have searched the archives of forum, and followed Dr. Booth#039;s to an excellent webpage describing MB oil Can#039;t find where 10W30 dino juice applicable MB, ACEA or API diesel oil requirements.

My questions to forum are these: (1) it appears to me that an oil MB sheet 229.3 requirements be fine for the OM603.951 engine in my 300SDL. Am I right? (2) the burden of is on the dealership#039;s service department to me that they put the right oil my engine, yes?

I feel to note that this service department has done an job for me (fixing things right the time, staying on budget, on schedule) in all other respects I bought the car last year. shop foreman led our local chapter maintenance event a few ago, and he came across as knowledgeable and decent at that

Thanks in advance for any advice



The Castrol used DOES NOT meet the for your CDI. The CDI requires a HT/HS rating translated Temperature/High Shear. Your option is to cite the requirement to use an oil that meets the FSS requirements. The FSS in the US any oil approved under MB229.5. requires a high HT/HS Most oils in the us are rated at 2.9 HT/HS where 229.5 for a MINIMUM of 3.5. Readily oils that meet specification are Mobil 1 0w40 labelled European Formula) and 5w40 European formula.

Non synthetic oils are PROHIBITED to be in ANY CDI motor and IMMEDIATE damage to the WILL result! The reason is compression ring land The compression rings run in extreme ranges during all operating Conventional oils will IMMEDIATELY regardless of how often you your oil.

If you need oil go to he sells and will ship approved oil to you made by ELF. He is getting the latest 229.5 0w30 for greater fuel with the engine protection motor needs.

API anything does not address the requirements of European cars. in mind that the higher automotive engines generate cam lobe pressures and higher oil in certain areas of the motor domes, ring lands).

By the way sure they are using a oil filter when they the properly rated lubricant. them of the $23,000,000 lawsuit NON use of synthetic in the modern MB motors.


NB :

One more thing, for any modern stick with an approved MB 0w30, 5w30, 0w40 or REGARDLESS of what the temperatures are All these properly rated will protect your down to as low as -64F (-53C) and up to (204C) continuous oil sump which is required to survive the dome and ring land To date NO CONVENTIONAL oil meets ANY of requirements.

Anything thicker a 5w40 is damaging your as a result of slower start up oil and risking expensive wear in the bearings. Also the thicker in the turbo cannot properly the 200,000 rpm turbo shaft routine cold starts. was intended for 30,000 rpm turbos not the VNT with variable geometry which operate in at 1060C due to emissions requirements.
