Thumbs up sounds stupid I know


I noticed the same thing on the oil guage, when I went to take delivery of my 420 from my nephew. Not being a DIY'er he always had others service his MB. The neadle was at 3 bars, always and at stop, didn't matter. I thought to myself there should be some drop in it at stop in gear at idle. Still 3 bars, you guessed it, a quart to much oil, which I drained out the next day, before putting it on the road home. Now it drops to 2 bars at idle in gear, and the oil level likes to stay midway of the min and max lines on the stick. Make sure your not overfull.
