You may be interested in the following thread. Apparently there were some issues with the early FSS oil sensors.

99' E320 oil level, ignition switch and Headrest cover


Just wonder what kind of motor oil should I use? Cause the Engine Oil level is low and need to add 1.5 quart, so I stop by PEP Boy. I try to get 'Mobil 1' - 0w 40 which the Manual suggested, but they don't carry 0w40 and I end up use 15w50. Is it matter?
Mobil-1 0W40 and 15W50 are readily available at WalMart and AutoZone in our area. FWIW.
