170Da oil recommendation
« on: May 04, 2013, 02:05:02 PM »
I was searching through prior topics trying to find the appropriate oil for the 170Da. And wanted to confirm that the concensious is SAE 30. Stephen

SAE 30 is what was originally specified and it is OK, but some time ago I asked George Murphy, then technical director for MBUSA, to recommend current lubricants.  He suggested 10W-40 non-synthetic oil by Pennzoil, Castrol, or Kendall.
