Hi - I have an...
Hi - I have an '03 E320 in great shape with 91K miles. Ive done 10K oil and filter changes regularly with 0W-40 Mobile one. Transmission was flushed at 45K; fluid looked very bad/dark. The only replacement that's been needed is a battery(trunk). I'm planning a 100k service soon; a little early due to its age. Do I need to use special Mercedes fluids for anything? Differential? Recommend a thermostat? I will r&r plugs and any serviceable wires. I'm pretty much a service nut and want it done right. I have my own private mechanic Ive used for 20+ years. Thanks in advance

first off service G+ is kinda hard to explain. In short each letter represents a hour of service to the customer. Service A=1 hr service G= 8 hrs, the + means the 50% brake pad sensor is worn through and the brakes beed changed . I can forward you the service sheet . You can use normal fluids for the rear diff. We do replace plugs but not the wires unless you have misfiring issues. The old rule if it aint broke dont fix it. I will get you the service sheet . Lou

For the a-g services the car is using those letters based on time and mileage, we were to disregard those and go off the service sheet anyways so it ended up being a waste and we never lakd attention to the letter .

Thank you. And I would be interested in seeing the service sheet. I mentioned I have my own mechanic. We work closely together on my vehicles. Thanks for the service code info; the brakes would be included in the service. PS, brake fluids, coolant, diff oil, can all be off the shelf items.
all the fluids can be over the counter, all dealer fluids are made by outside companies like mobil1 so getting them is not a problem. I am currently traveling but can get you the service sheet today in a few hours if that is ok.
