2005 Mercedes-Benz C230 Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Mercedes-Benz C230 engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, engine 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 oil on my own? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Mercedes-Benz exhaust smoke gray or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
