Mercedes-Benz Oil Change Service
Without question, one of the best ways to continue to enjoy reliable performance from your Mercedes-Benz is to ensure that your vehicle receives regular engine oil changes. The primary function of the oil inside your engine is to keep internal components properly lubricated in order to shield them from damaging friction and heat. Protect your engine and ensure years of reliable performance by having routine oil changes completed at Mercedes-Benz of Easton.
When Is the Right Time to Change My Oil?
Although individual driving styles and conditions can vary, our team at Mercedes-Benz of Easton is here to help keep your vehicle running at peak performance. The best place to find the exact oil change interval recommended by the manufacturer for your specific vehicle is inside your owner’s manual. Thanks to advancements in both oil technology and in-vehicle oil life monitoring systems, today’s oil change intervals are much longer than they have been in the past. While oil changes are required less frequently, they are still just as important.
On some older Mercedes-Benz models, it’s recommended that you have the oil changed every 5,000 miles or every 6 months, whichever occurs first. Many modern Mercedes-Benz vehicles have recommended intervals of 7,500 or even 10,000 miles. Again, we recommend referring to your owner’s manual or the oil life monitor inside your vehicle for more information. If you still aren’t sure when your oil should be changed, our friendly and knowledgeable Mercedes-Benz service advisors will be glad to give you the answer.
Tips for Identifying an Engine Oil-Related Issue
Having the ability to spot an issue with your oil can prevent serious damage to your engine and save you money in the long run. Below, you can learn about two common signs that indicate there could be a problem with your oil.
Oil Spots Beneath Your Vehicle – Have you found a puddle or oil stains below your vehicle? It’s time to let a factory-trained Mercedes-Benz technician inspect your vehicle for the cause of this problem. Your valve cover gasket(s), oil pan drain plug, and oil pan gaskets are areas where oil can potentially leak from. It’s especially important to remember that even a tiny oil leak can quickly turn into a huge problem, causing loss of oil pressure and potential damage to your engine.
Oil Warning / Low Oil Pressure Light – Has an oil warning light or low oil pressure warning light appeared on your dashboard? Continuing to drive with these warning lights on could put your engine at risk for serious harm. A certain amount of oil is required in order to keep your engine properly lubricated and protected from damage. If you spot one of these lights, you should stop driving your vehicle as soon as safely possible. Contact the service professionals at Mercedes-Benz of Easton for further assistance.
