I bought my '97 PS 205 after they PO had a new engine installed. The 350 5.7l is at 10 hours now. I'm wondering if I can do the oil change myself or if there is other services included in this service that taking it to the dealer would be better?

Also, the manual says 20w/50 oil is the type of choice. Is this the general consensus? I've found other threads where there was disagreement. Oil filter NAPA gold or WIXX seem to be common choices, correct?

Thanks for the help.

Yes you can do your own oil changes, your manual will break down all required service, 15-40 is whats recommended present day, personally I use mobil 1, but use what your comfortable with and your favorite filter...

Unless the valves need adjustment (shouldn't), then oil change and go.
