Disconcerting news on the OM 642 engine maintenance
According to various, apparently reliable, German Internet reports, the ASSYST maintenance schedule for the OM 642 engine (the V6 diesel) is a meager 15,000 kilometres (or 9,323 miles) between oil changes, which have to be performed with a MB-approved oil.
Apparently, this is to make sure that the soot microparticle filters function correctly. To me, this is not very good news, as I currently do quite near to the double between these not really cheap visits to my friendly dealership.
Also, it's har to see the ecological sense in emitting a few less soot particles when the prixe to be paid is recycling twice as much engine oil.
But of course, it helps keep the MB shops busy [:0]
