Mercedes CLS55 AMG W219, My First Oil Change With LiquiMoly 5W40 High Tech

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.

List:

  • 2x 5 Liter LiquiMoly High Tec Low Resistance 5W40
  • 1x Mann Oil Filter HU718/5X
  • 2x Mercedes Oil Sump Plug A3529970032
  • 1x Katsu Oil Filter Wrench Set

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.

Putting the Katsu oil filter wrench to good use. I used a combination of a vacuumpump with the drain plugs to get most of the old oil out

Performed some other things “while I was in there”, but I will describe that in separate posts.




DeWalt DCF899 impact wrench VS stubborn Volvo S80 Crank Pulley Nut VS Parkside PASSK 20-Li A1

I have been trying to get the crank pulley nut of the vibration damper of my P2 Volvo S80, but have been unsuccessful so far. I tried multiple times with heat, breaker bars, my Parkside PASSK 20-Li A1 impact wrench etc etc.

Decided to invest in a premium brand impact wrench and it has surpassed my expectations! Check my video
