Performed the first oil change on the CLS55 with LiquiMoly High Tech Low Resistance 5W40 oil. Bought 2x 5 Liter canisters, as the big 5.4 Liter takes about 8.5 Liters of oil in total. Also added in 1.5 canister of LiquiMoly Ceratec, a well known working friction modifier.

This was my setup for the day, used 2 ramp, which has enough ground clearance.
This is how the oil filter looked. It was in a bad state, seems the previous owner skimped out on maintenance…The rubber O-rings especially were very old and worn.
The M113k engine has 2 sumps, a front scavenging sump and in the back the main sump. I saw a lot of oil leakage, most of it was due to the rocker covers as far as I could judge for now.
Performed some other things “while I was in there”, but I will describe that in separate posts.
