How Often Should You Change Your Oil?

No matter what type of vehicle you’re driving in West Bloomfield, keeping up with a regular oil change schedule is vital to maintaining your car’s good condition. However, if you’re behind the wheel of a luxury Mercedes-Benz coupe, sedan, or SUV, oil service is not just essential to maintain the health, but also the high-performance of your vehicle. For Mercedes-Benz vehicles, Southfield drivers should follow Mercedes-Benz Service A* and Mercedes-Benz Service B* maintenance schedules. These set specific intervals to ensure services like Synthetic Motor Oil Replacement and other essential maintenance tasks such as replacing spark plugs are carried out regularly.

What Does Mercedes-Benz Oil Service Include?

When you bring your Mercedes-Benz to a certified service center like Mercedes-Benz of Bloomfield Hills for oil service, the following maintenance tasks are carried out:

  • Complete a Synthetic Motor Oil Replacement for model years 2009 and newer as a component of Mercedes-Benz Service A or Mercedes-Benz Service B
  • Complete Mercedes-Benz oil service** for model years 2008 and older (when not part of Service A/B)
  • Complete Oil Filter Replacement using genuine parts
  • Recycle the old oil filter

Service A vs. Service B Synthetic Motor Oil Replacement

As part of proper protocol for Mercedes-Benz Service A and B, a certified technician will complete a Synthetic Motor Oil Replacement, as well as an Oil Filter Replacement.

Mercedes-Benz Service A is performed after 10,000 miles or 1 year –– whichever milestone comes first. Mercedes-Benz Service B is performed after Service A at 20,000 miles or 2 years –– whichever occurs first. You will continue rotating between these service intervals throughout the lifespan of your Mercedes-Benz vehicle.

How Often Should I Check the Oil Level?

Regardless of the type of vehicle you’re driving, it is recommended to check your oil level once a month at home in Birmingham. By checking on the oil level in between service appointments, you can better maintain the high level of performance delivered by your vehicle. For example, if you notice that the color of the oil is brown or black, this could tell you that it’s been contaminated and requires replacement as soon as possible. Or, if the oil level is not where it should be, it could alert you to a leak in the oil system, which should also be tended to as soon as possible.
