Oh and now instead of just the small wrench it has a bigger wrench also. But it did change mileage to 10000.

Question Re: Oil change

papap,
What oil did you use?
How many quarts (liters) did you put in?
If you overfilled it you should get a warning in the console that says "HI".
It's definitely not a "greeting".

Depending on the dash display config, you might get a CEL for high oil. Use a vacuum pump to draw out 1/2 quart. Check it with the dip stick first.

Ok. I use Mobil 1 oil that is rated 229.51. I drained some oil out. It shows about half way between min and max on dipstick. It lets me rest the 51 screen But engine light is still on and on oil change interval screen there is a small and larger wrench. Also on one screen it shows a code 0208. Anyone have any clues?

This is a 2011 model with no steering wheel controls.

I have a 2008 and the mb dealer said light is very sensative. Real issue and tiny amounts either under or over will cause it to come on. I get a oil can indicator

Papap,
Did you also refill the DEF fluid?
I have a 2011 MB Sprinter without the steering wheel buttons but I'm only at 6500 miles so I'm not sure how the DEF warning displays yet.
Since oil changes and DEF fluid refills both occur at 10K miles you could also be low on DEF.

That would be sad if Papap's other thread CEL after oil change is low DEF
