How often should I change the oil in my Mercedes Benz?

Post Date: 14th July 2017


Being the owner of a Mercedes Benz means that you’re probably madly in love with your vehicle. Most Mercedes owners simply won’t drive anything else, and why would you? The smoothness of the drive, the expertise of the craftsmanship and the comfort of the whole experience is enough to make anyone give up all car manufacturers for good.

That’s why it’s essential that you look after the engine in your Mercedes. In this blog we’ll be talking about changing the oil in your Mercedes Benz, and how often it should be done.

Beware of the signs

Typically, most modern engines should only require an oil change every 10,000 miles or so. It’s important to check the oil in your car regularly especially if you own a petrol engined model, petrol engines burn oil at a faster rate than diesel engined models.

However, if that service signal lights up on the dashboard don’t ignore it. Here are some of the most common warning signs telling you that your Mercedes requires and oil change and a general servicing: –

– A high-pitched sound when you brake

– Your engine is running louder than usual

– The oil level drops

– Irregular noises coming from the engine

If you encounter these signs, it’s worth booking your car in for a checkup or oil change. If you ignore these signs you could be booking in for a new engine, and that won’t come cheap!
