Thanks,



Basically nothing will go bang but the 229.51 is a low saps oil, it has reduced amounts of anti wear additives in to protect diesel particle filters, it's also thinner than necessary when it's hot so will have lower film strength. To be belt and braces, i'd change it out for the correct oil.

Kendal do a 5w40 which is the one for your torque fest of an engine

Can you explain how 229.5 is thinner then 229.5?


Once again i think you've misunderstood what i've said

The AMG engine needs a 229.5 0w or 5w 40

The OP has put a 229.51 5w30 in

OK< because you are saying 229.5 and 229.51 so I am thinking how is thinner if it is same viscosity. But, yeah I get what you saying.

Yeah, you were completely wrong, again, I'll break it down for you since you are incapable of following a thread properly or reading and typing in English.

229.5 is a performance approval given to many different viscosities.

The SLK55 AMG oil has to be both 229.5 and an SAE 40 when it's hot.

• Volkswagen automobiles, gasoline engines and diesel engines,
standard drain only (includes diesel engines with or without
unit injector, and with or without DPF)
