It is so simple, every body should do their own oil change. Great video Outbacker. The transmission fluid is even simpler. Looking forward for more of your videos.

yup, its super easy, but lots of people i know they still prefer topay $200 for it, to have that piece of mind. My car is the same way, it's easier than any other toyota nissan etc..easier than japanese cars.. but since its a mercedes benz, people get scared from doing it themselves.

you should see how simple the valve cover check is and bmw charge a hefty amount for it.

transmission fluid, do you mean the final drive gear oil? mine is not due til 12k! so until then, we will see. but yes its very simple as well.
