Question about oil pressure on Mercedes cars.

Hello,

I'd like to know whether the oil pressure on Mercedes cars is measured after the oil passes through the oil filter element, or before that? Thanks.

Eric

I'm pretty sure it's after because whenever I change the oil filter it takes noticably longer to build up the oil pressure for the first time.

Look at the bottom for "Engine lubrication diagram":

Vacuum Diagrams

You can also trace out the oil lines and look for the pressure switch.

BTW how many posts are you going to make asking the same question?
