old blue,

No, that does not change my answer. The dipsticks on most cars have marks that designate whether the oil level is low or high. MB's are different. The lower indicator is ADD. When oil level drops below mid-level (optimal), everything is still "acceptable". Once it reaches the ADD level, begin adding oil 1/2 qt. at a time until it reaches halfway up the dipstick tube cold.
