I had Mercedes E320 Model 2000. Would like to have some advice. What weight of oil I need to change on my car.

Mobil 1 Synthetic: 0W-30 or 5W-30. Any help would be appreciate.

Welcome to the best place to habla with nice people who have the same passion as you! There is ALOT of advise on this subject. You should (in my opinion) do two things.

1. Consult your owners manual.

2. Do a search here on the subject of oil and you will get more input than you could ever imagine.

85 300D
84 300SD (sold)

Mr. Bill gave sound advice, there should be an oilweight chart in your owners manual which will offer some proper choices.

I personally run one of the weights you indicated in California. The relatively warm climate would probably lend itself better to 10W30.

Best of luck,
