How Often Should I Check My Oil Level?

It's a good idea to check your car's oil level monthly, especially if you don't drive it often. Without the correct amount of oil, the engine is in serious danger of overheating and possibly failing, especially if you drive a high-performance car like an AMG®. When you check the oil level, be sure to examine the color of the oil itself. If the oil is dark brown or black, it's contaminated and should be replaced as soon as possible. If the fluid level is lower than it should be, this could be a sign of a car leak, which would best be addressed at our service center.  

What Does Mercedes-Benz Oil Service Include?

Mercedes-Benz oil service is an essential part of maintaining the unparalleled performance levels put out by your luxury vehicle, but what does Mercedes-Benz oil service include? Take a look:

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

What Happens If You Don't Change Your Oil?

Everyone knows that an oil replacement is a fundamental maintenance task for their Mercedes-Benz vehicle, but some Iowa City drivers ask us about the specifics: "What happens if you don't change your oil?" Motor oil is made to reduce friction, so when it gets old it becomes less effective, resulting in overheated parts and potentially serious damage.
