    Just a quick 1 ( dont know the engine number so cant use the sticky thread) but which engine oil shall i use for my 96 c230 kompressor? Am i right in saying 0w 40 fully synth or 10w 40 full synth? And also is 6.0 litres capacity correct?
    Also which anti freeze do i need?
    Cheers

    Id say use 5W40 that's what Mobil seems to recommend although used to be 0W40. Anti freeze go OEM from Mercedes cheap enough why put in anything else !

    You have a version of the M111 engine. specifically the M111.970.
    It will run on anything from a 10w40 semi-synthetic to a fully synthetic 0w40.
    A 5W40 synthetic would be a good compromise.
