Oil Change Questions... DIY
Had a look around the forums for a lot of questions I had, couldn't find most of them so here it goes...
I have a 2002 C230 Kompressor with 55k miles on it, and I'm located in central Pennsylvania, US.
I'm nearing 4.5k miles since service A and service B is in about 5.5k miles... I wanted to get my oil changed without the crazy labor fees.
1. I bought Mobile 1 5w30 extended performance... reading another post I noticed someone said 2000+ needs 0w40, should I be going back to the store to return the oil?
2. I've read a lot of posts all saying different mileages for changes... I drive fairly far to work so I will always hit my mileage before I hit a maximum time. I've read 13k, 10k, 6.5k, and 3k miles for changes, or should I just stick by my service schedule?
3. I've also read about FSS, but then I read that is only in Canada, and Europe... not in the US, is that correct?
4. I know someone that just ordered an oil filter wrench for an '01 Boxster, when trying to search for my wrench I noticed they're by make and all of them say Porsche, VW, Mercedes etc... so the one for the Porsche will fit my car?
Also, does anyone know how Service B compares to Service A price wise?
Thanks in advance...
