The oil filter in your Mercedes is responsible for preventing debris and other potentially harmful substances from getting into your engine oil. Your car's motor oil lubricates the engine and prevents damage to moving parts due to heat and friction. Dirty oil can damage the engine and even make it suffer a catastrophic failure if it is continued to be used for a period of time. The oil filter also prevents sludge build up which can cause the engine to run poorly. If your engine doesn't receive the proper amount of lubrication, parts will start to rub against each other and can cause overheating of your engine. If your car is losing fuel efficiency, if a check engine light is on, if the car is sputtering or if the pressure drops, you might have a bad oil filter. Any decrease in performance on the road can also indicate a faulty filter. You should be replacing the filter on a regular basis or at the first sign of trouble. When you go to get a new oil filter, ensure you are investing in one that is OEM quality and made for your specific vehicle. You can find genuine Mercedes oil filters here on our site.
