2010 E 550 Oil Change
My dealer advised me that oil changes are to be done only every 10,000
miles. I would personally feel much better about the whole situation if I could change my own oil a little more frequently.
I was advised that oil changes in Mercedes,unlike american cars, are more detailed and it was recommended that I do not attempt such maintenance.
I.however , have changed my own oil for years-----never in a Mercedes though because this is my first.
Can someone please shed a little light on this matter ? I really want to do as much maintenance on this car as possible,what little there seems to do !
I know a fleece filter,preferably Mann,and Mobil One Synthetic are imperative.
Any details on the actual procedure will be greatly appreciated. I tried search for oil changes but came up dry.
