Your 2018 AMG GT C’s oil should be changed according to Mercedes-Benz’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above.

2018 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT C Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Mercedes-Benz AMG GT C engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Mercedes-Benz AMG GT C engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Mercedes-Benz AMG GT C oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Mercedes-Benz AMG GT C exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
