Your Mercedes-Benz vehicle is a precise and powerful machine, but it’s just like other vehicles in at least one respect. Motor oil is the lifeblood of your engine, and knowing how to check car oil on your own can help you reduce the risks posed by leaks and contamination as you drive around the Rye area.
So, how do you check the oil level in a Mercedes-Benz car or SUV? If you’re in a hurry, you can check your oil level using your electronic oil monitor. If you want to confirm a reading or you’re already under the hood, you can also simply check the dipstick. We’ll cover both methods below!
Many modern vehicles are engineered with electronic oil monitors, and your favorite Mercedes-Benz cars and SUVs are no exception. If you’re seated behind the wheel and your car is on level ground, you can check your oil level quickly and easily:
Making sense of what the oil monitor tells you shouldn’t be too difficult. If everything’s as it should be, it will read “Engine Oil Level – OK”. If you need more oil, it will list “Engine Oil Level,” alongside the amount that you need to add. If you get a “Measuring Not Possible” result, simply try again in a few moments. Still having trouble? Check your owner’s manual to find out exactly what you should do next, or schedule Mercedes-Benz oil service with our team.
If you’re the type who doesn’t mind getting their hands dirty, you might find it even easier to check your oil level with the dipstick. Some of the most recently-produced Mercedes-Benz vehicles don’t have a dipstick, so keep that in mind before you get started. If you’re sure that your model does have a dipstick, here’s how you get the job done quickly:
While you’re under the hood, you might notice corrosion on your car battery. Find out how to remove battery corrosion with our team.
When you’re adding more oil to your Mercedes-Benz, make sure that you’re using an approved product. The oils we use during your scheduled Synthetic Motor Oil Replacement* service are all available at our Greenwich parts department. Check your owner’s manual if you’re unsure of which product to use. Adding fresh oil to your Mercedes-Benz is simple. When your engine is cool, simply locate the oil cap, unscrew it, and use a funnel to pour more oil into the reservoir. Your electronic oil monitor will tell you exactly how much oil you need to add, but you should still work carefully and slowly to avoid overfilling. Add a little bit (0.5 quarts) at a time, and if you feel so inclined, you can check the dipstick or your electronic oil monitor as you go.
