Introduction. Changing the oil on a Mercedes-Benz is easier than in some Japanese or domestic cars. Some owners prefer to use an oil extractor such as the Mityvac 7400 7.3 Liter Fluid Evacuator to do their oil change. How to video using extractor provided below if you want to go that route.
To do a Mercedes oil change, you should have tools like a screwdriver, 13mm wrench, jack and stands, oil filter removal tool, synthetic oil and oil catch pan. Experienced drivers and mechanics can do the job in less than 30 minutes.
Most people drive almost 12,000 miles a year. Average vehicles need an oil change after 3,000 to 5,000 miles, which means four oil-changing in a single year. On the other hand, you don’t need to do it more than once per year for a Mercedes-Benz because the cars use high-quality synthetic oil and their fuel tank is bigger.
All internal (moving) parts of the engine need to be lubricated by the engine oil. Inadequate lubrication will cause the parts to wear out faster and eventually lead to engine failure. An oil filter keeps the oil clean and free of debris. If the filter is not replaced on a regular basis,...
For my SL55 AMG, Mercedes-Benz dealers would charge more than 10 times the price of a cheap Jiffy Lube oil change.
Complementary Modification: Even though Mercedes Benz recommends oil change intervals that are much further apart than in the past, I usually recommend that you keep the changes under the 5,000-mile limit. If you don't drive your car too often, you should change the oil at least once a year to keep things fresh.
