Hello my name is***** car takes Mobil 1 5w-40 oil with a label that will say ESP for emission system protection. On the back it will show the specifications and it will show Mercedes Benz 229.51. That is the oil you want to use. Should take between 8-9 quarts depending on how long you let the oil drain. Also you need a special cup tool to remove the oil filter housing. And always loosen the housing first so the oil can drain to the oil pan. Hope this information helps let Me know if you have any questions I will help you as much as I can.
