Mercedes-Benz recommends changing your 2018 AMG GT S’s oil at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your AMG GT S in the above table. No matter the mileage, your AMG GT S may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Mercedes-Benz recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Mercedes-Benz AMG GT S. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2018 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT S

  • What can low oil do to my Mercedes-Benz AMG GT S engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Mercedes-Benz AMG GT S engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Mercedes-Benz AMG GT S oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Mercedes-Benz exhaust smoke gray or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
