Use Mobil 1 0W-40 and a Mann oil filter. You can get the Mann filter from Amazon for approximately $14. Car takes 8.5 quarts of oil. Good Luck

Bookmark this page and learn how to use it at each service, as oil recommendations lately change on monthly basis.
Your manual will give you dino oils recommendations, when in the mean time USA lawyers come with requirements for synthetics.

I bought 5, 5 quart jugs of Mobil 1 online at Wal-Mart . com...free shipping and cheapest place I found. My local Wal-Mart is hit or miss with availability and price. I buy the Mann filters on Amazon.

Are you planning to drain from the bottom or evacuation? I like the Mityvac, works well and is very easy and clean. I've done dozens of oil changes on my Mercedes cars over the years.

Has anyone tried the new Amazon full synthetic yet? I watched a test done between the Amazon, Mobil 1, and Valvoline full synthetics and Amazon crushed Valvoline and held up better then Mobil 1 in the cold temp and warm temp viscosity tests.

I like evacuation, but others may not. I bet you can look on Youtube for videos of it being used. I bought nine on amazon....this was the first link that came up.
