How Often to Get 2018 Mercedes-Benz C43 AMG Oil Changes

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2018 Mercedes-Benz C43 AMG? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires.

Mercedes-Benz recommends having your 2018 Mercedes-Benz C43 AMG’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your C43 AMG in the above table. Outside of Mercedes-Benz-recommended oil change intervals, your C43 AMG may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Mercedes-Benz recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, adventure off-road, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Mercedes-Benz C43 AMG. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

This oil helps lubricate engine parts, keep the engine cool, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. During an oil change, an auto technician will change your C43 AMG’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off important fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your C43 AMG by taking into account your driving habits, and mileage.

2018 Mercedes-Benz C43 AMG Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Mercedes-Benz C43 AMG? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Mercedes-Benz C43 AMG engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Mercedes-Benz C43 AMG oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Mercedes-Benz C43 AMG spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
