Preferred Lubricants Sticky

Post#1 » Sat Mar 07, 2015 12:21 pm

We should have stickies here for both the W460 and W463 chassis, both gas and diesel variants. Also, we should cover all manner of fluids, from an easy to follow arrangement like so:

Engine Oil
Engine Coolant

Transmission Oil

Differential Oil

U-joint grease

etc.

Fluids specs and amounts would be better, and/or updated specs to better match what may be available these days.

Brands will cause nothing but arguments. I will say Redline for just about everything if you want the best, except diesel oil which should be something conventional (Rotella) but someone will inevitably say, "My daddy always used Pennzoil so damnit, that's what I do!". Countless threads are already full of that.
