2003 Mercedes-Benz C230 Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Mercedes-Benz C230 motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Mercedes-Benz C230 engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Mercedes-Benz C230 oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Mercedes-Benz exhaust smoke gray or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
