Pam is approaching 5K miles since I last drained the oil in our 45.

I picked up an extractor since some posted oil pan pictures that implied that there would be a tub of undrained oil left after the plug was pulled. I'll use the extractor and then see if there is oil left to come out the plug.

I'll report back in a few weeks.

The notes from MB says to only drain for 45.

I think ALL AMG models required draining from the bottom via the drain bolt/plug. On my last SLK55 AMG, there were TWO drain bolts/plugs......one for the oil pan and the other for the sump pump.

I think as long as one performed regular oil changes according to MB recommendations and specs, the little bit of oil left in the system after draining via the drain bolts/plugs will not matter much since the amount left over is so small. But if one goes for some crazy EXTENDED OIL CHANGE INTERVALS BEYOND MB SPECS then there will be troubles ahead.

Just remember:. The solution to pollution is dilution. This is accomplished via regular oil and filter changes whereby the pollution (contaminants) are trapped by the filter and diluted by the fresh oil.

I think its no longer available from the seller, but you can try other sellers on eBay.

You would have to search WIS ASRA EPC. I was fortunate that my copy and others who bought from the same seller works. There are no guarantees that it will work.
