Oil Change Q&A for Your 2006 Mercedes-Benz C230

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Mercedes-Benz C230? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Mercedes-Benz C230 engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change 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. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce 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. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
