Recommended Posts

Hi

I planned to carry out a routine servicing for W205. Ok to use Castrol 5W-40 and Liqui Moly Ceratec? Any one heard of MSP oil (Made in USA)? Thanks

I use Shell Helix Ultra 5W40 because it's dirt cheap....AND CNC USES IT TOO!😆  Just buy your oil from Shopee man.  I've been getting oil from a very well established online seller.  
 

For $28.50 in a 4L bottle, why people insist on getting charged a crazy premium at CnC is beyond me.

I used to also buy the shell oil from giant when there is promo. But I found that when I drive hard using that oil will have very strong bad egg smell from exhaust.
Not sure if related. Cos when change to other brand there smell does not seem to return.

I love eggs, but my car still farts like the day I got it.  😄  I don't know man, I've been using whatever's approved for all my cars and never had an issue.  Just buy whatever you're comfortable with.  Happy can already.👍

One thing to note:  I change my oil every 10k MAX.

I am also wondering the cause for this issue for years without any success. i am using the same oil Mobil 1 approved for MB for both C200 and Lexus IS250. No smell for C200 but smell for IS250. Oil change every 10k km.

Short of a leak somewhere, the only other way engine oil is going to touch the exhaust system is through over-filling.  The eggy smell is caused by a source containing sulphur hitting the catalytic converter, which today's synthetic oils shouldn't have much of but varies according to manufacturer.

Petrol though, is another ballgame altogether.

I used Castrol 5W-40 with Liqui Moly Ceratec. I added the Ceratec myself as I just found out my mechanic charged me a lot if I used his items. I also planned to bring my own oil but my mechanic charged me higher labour. A bit disappointed as I have been supported him over the past few years with my MB. He even claimed not overcharging the parts from his stockist. But I just found out during the last servicing that he's not very honest. If he wanted to charge me more then he ought to tell me and not to claim otherwise. I planned not to let him service the control arms and shock absorbers as all seem wearing off. Any reliable and good mechanic to recommend? I also planned to get them replaced in Malaysia if the costs is lower. Thanks
