I'm not sure it would if you have a dipstick fitted , but I would guess yes if it doesn't have a dipstick .
Your in car manual may well say
^ Have you scrolled through the menus on the steering wheel to see if there is an oil level check?
My W211 has this facility although it doesn't have a dipstick.
..... but I'm not sure if it can tell sump oil amount unless your car is set up to measure with an on board computer check . (I don't think my car is on the normal menus but I would guess MB Star can probably tell )
Hi AMGeed, I am still making discoveries on what can be assessed from the steering wheel menu's, but so far I have not seen anything about engine oil level, any tips on what (or where ) to look? Thanks.
I would have seen that if it was there,,,so back to the dipstick. Thanks again for your help,My older W211 probably has a different menu to your later W212 JIm, but this is how you check a W211.
Turn ign key to Pos# 2, and the standard display appears in the multi-function display.
Press the up and down arrow on the steering wheel, scrolling through the menu until you see the following message
"Engine oil level ..Measuring now."
The engine should have been brought up to operating temperature beforehand as oil levels should be checked when warm.
True , but my thinking is that there are the menus that are available normally to the driver/owner, and then there are the sub menus that are available to dealers (and readers of YouTube and forums) that allow you to specify oil types , filter changes and reset service menus . I'm not a user of Star but it does seem to be able to interrogate cars quite in depth . But as you say , if it can't tell , then I've learnt something new .If the car can't measure its own oil level with its own electronics, how will STAR?
