Have you ever had your oil changed at Pep Boys?

Just wondered if any of you had your oil changed at Pep Boys when in a time pinch.

No but

I used to have my 115 oil changed at Grease Monkey. I brought them the oil (AMSOIL) and the filter. They charged something nominal for labor, maybe $20.00. I just didn't like to lay on my back and let the filthy hot diesel oil run down my arm when changing the filter.

Just check your oil level before driving away.

Ask them if they have the tools to extract the oil via the dipstick tube and know how to use it.

Otherwise, don't let them touch your car.

No I have never had my oil changed at Pep Boys and probably never will. However, to the best of my knowledge they are the only ones , besides the MB dealer, that carry Mobil1 -5W40, ESP 229.51, which is required for all Bluetec engines.

Find an MB independent where you live. Pep Boys will never get a shot at mine. There are always exceptions, but I don't think they see enough MBs to be familiar with them.

Back in Philly, Manny Moe and Jack made a name for themselves, and I don't think it had anything to do with Mercedes and high end.
