How Often Should You Schedule Oil Service?

Oil Replacement

A Mercedes-Benz vehicle is just like any other vehicle in at least one (and perhaps just one) respect: Motor oil is the lifeblood of your engine, and it needs to be changed regularly in order to keep your vehicle moving forward. Mercedes-Benz Synthetic Motor Oil Replacement should be performed at least once every 10,000 miles, or roughly once per year, as part of your regular Service A or Service B appointment*.

Mercedes-Benz Oil Service: Frequency Guidelines

Different manufacturers provide different answers to the question: “How often should you change your oil?” The 10,000-mile oil replacement frequency guideline identified above is based on the performance of Mercedes-Benz Full Synthetic Motor Oil, which has been required in all new vehicles manufactured during and after model-year 2010.  Ultimately, for newer models, you should rely on your ASSYST Plus maintenance computer to let you know when it’s time to schedule oil replacement**. For older vehicles made during and before model-year 2008, an oil change frequency of roughly 5,000 to 7,500 miles might be more appropriate^.

Mercedes-Benz Oil Replacement: Frequently Asked Questions

  • Should I always rely on the Mercedes-Benz oil replacement guidelines identified above? Yes, but keep in mind that certain activities, including towing and off-roading near Stamford, may negatively impact your oil life.
  • How often should I change my oil if my Mercedes-Benz isn’t used regularly? Oil breaks down over time, even when it isn’t being used. To ensure optimal performance when you get behind the wheel, schedule oil service at least once or twice a year.
  • Can Mercedes-Benz oil replacement be performed at home? Since Mercedes-Benz oil replacement is just one small part of your Service A or Service B appointment, you should only replace your oil at home if you’re performing the service much more often than most drivers.
  • What happens if I forget to schedule Mercedes-Benz oil replacement service? Since you’ll see either one or two wrenches appear on your dashboard when service is due, the risk of missing an appointment is low. Ignoring the warning, however, could lead to reduced performance or even permanent damage.
  • What else needs to happen when oil is replaced? Mercedes-Benz Synthetic Motor Oil Replacement always includes replacement of the oil filter as well. If you’re performing oil service at home, make sure to pick up an appropriate OEM filter from our parts department in Greenwich.
