What Does Mercedes-Benz Oil Service Include?

Pouring Oil into Funnel

Have you ever wondered about the ins and outs of your Mercedes-Benz oil service? When you schedule Synthetic Motor Oil Replacement* at our service center near Rye, you’ll receive the following:

What kind of motor oil is used in your Mercedes-Benz oil service? How often should you schedule an appointment with our service center? Get the answers to these questions, and more, by reading on.

Synthetic Oil vs. Regular Oil

Your Mercedes-Benz maintenance schedule requires you to use synthetic oil. Synthetic oil improves upon the lubricating and heat-distributing qualities of standard oil by adding powder additives and carrying elements for optimal distribution. Additionally, synthetic oil goes through an expanded process of purification, where it is refined, distilled, and modified at the molecular level. The difference between synthetic oil and regular oil consists in the former’s superior performance. With Synthetic Motor Oil Replacement* for your Mercedes-Benz, you’ll enjoy:

  • A lower degree of friction as your oil moves through the machinery
  • Fewer deposits and a cleaner engine
  • More dependable performance when you’re facing extreme heat or cold

Synthetic Engine Oils for Mercedes-Benz Vehicles

When you schedule Mercedes-Benz Service A or Service B, we’ll carry out your Synthetic Motor Oil Replacement* with approved products. Using an unofficial substitute can lower the performance quality that you expect from your Mercedes-Benz. Here’s what you should look for if you’re performing oil service at home in New Canaan or Darien:

Sheet 229.1:

  • Mobil 1 Tri-Synthetic Formula 15w-50
  • Mobil 1 Tri-Synthetic Formula 0w-40
  • Valvoline Synpower Full Synthetic Motor Oil 5w-40
  • Castrol Syntec 5w-50
  • Castrol Syntec 10W-40
  • Quaker State Full Synthetic European Formula 5w-40
  • Pennzoil Synthetic European 5w-40
  • 76 Pure Synthetic Motor Oil 5w-40

Sheet 229.3:

  • Castrol TXT Softec Plus 5w-30
  • Shell Helix Ultra 5w-30
  • Shell Helix Ultra 5w-40

How Often is Synthetic Motor Oil Replacement Needed?

Every time you schedule Mercedes-Benz Service A** or Service B**, we’ll take care of your Synthetic Motor Oil Replacement and Oil Filter Replacement. While this generally means that you’ll visit us once every 10,000 miles, you should rely on your ASSYST Plus system to tell you exactly when it’s time to schedule service***. So, although you should check your oil level once every month or so, you’ll never have to keep track of your mileage or remember when you last brought your vehicle in. Check out our guide to the car maintenance schedule to learn more.

Stay on Track with Your Mercedes-Benz Maintenance Schedule!

When you next require Mercedes-Benz oil service, count on the team at the Mercedes-Benz of Greenwich service center to keep your engine performing to factory standards. What’s more, drivers who take advantage of our Express Service option can expect to get in and out in around an hour or less.
