Mercedes Benz Oil Change Service
Mercedes Benz by design have a different oil lubrication system than most vehicles. The oil filter does not screw-on the bottom or side of the engine. The Oil filter does not cost 59 cents and is not made in China. Mercedes Benz oil filters sit in a specific oil filter housing located on the front side of the engine, they are extremely efficient and allow for better flow of engine oil. The filters need to be made by one of two manufacturers MANN or MAHLE. They need have passed the German quality standard’s of being able to not deteriorate for three times the oil change interval and also need to be biodegradable.
At Peak Auto located in the Cary/Apex NC area, we use only MAHLE or MANN filter for your Mercedes Benz. Both of these filters are fantastic and do the job they are designed to do. Always demand a MANN or MAHLE filter when having an oil change done on your vehicle, these are what the BMW dealer’s are required to use.
Quick note about quicky lube stations and some tire stores, they do not change the oil filters during oil change on your Mercedes Benz. We at Peak Auto have dealt with the neglect of these filters and it is not pretty.
