Oil And Filter Changes At Mercedes-Benz Of West Houston

There are many routine maintenance and repairs recommended for your car or SUV, but the humble oil change is one of the most common and the most important. It's also one of the most forgotten about services and is often pushed aside.

What Is An Oil Change?

The engine in your Mercedes-Benz car or SUV requires oil to flow through it to keep it working properly. This oil not only lubricates the parts in your engine, but also cleans and cools it along the way. Over time, the oil will start to disintegrate, becoming either too thin or sludgy, and will become dirty with particles it picks up. The filter will also become dirty and won't work properly. If left unchanged, your engine will suffer from a larger (and more expensive) engine repair.

Frequently Asked Questions About Oil Changes

Browse through the answers to some of the most frequently asked oil change questions and contact our Mercedes-Benz of West Houston dealership to learn more.

When Should I Change the Oil in my Car?

While every vehicle is different, most newer models are suggested to have an oil change every 5,000 to 7,500 miles. To know your car's specific timeline, you'll want to read the owner's manual. If your car exceeds the miles or time limit suggested or your change oil light appears, you'll want to schedule an oil change right away.

How Much Does an Oil Change Cost?

Oil changes range in price depending on what type of vehicle you have and what type of oil you use. A conventional oil change will most likely cost around $35 to $75, while a synthetic oil change will most likely cost around $65 to $125.

What's the Difference Between Conventional and Synthetic Oil?

The biggest difference between conventional and synthetic oil is how it's made. Conventional oil is refined from crude oil, and synthetic is made with chemical compounds. For high-powered engines, such as those found in a Mercedes-Benz car or SUV, synthetic oil is mainly recommended. While synthetic may cost more than conventional, it's said to be longer-lasting and better for your engine.

How Long Does an Oil Change Take?

For the most part, an oil change takes about 35 to 45 minutes. Of course, the time depends on what type of vehicle you have and if you're receiving any other maintenance or service while you're at the service center.

Can I Do my Own Oil Change?

Absolutely! Oil changes are one of the easier routine maintenance issues and can be performed right from your Houston area driveway or garage. Of course, you'll need to have the proper tools, equipment, and parts to accomplish the task, all of which can be purchased at our Mercedes-Benz of West Houston parts center.
