2003 Mercedes-Benz CL500 Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Mercedes-Benz CL500 engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and eventually lead to Mercedes-Benz CL500 engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Mercedes-Benz CL500 oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. 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 it’ll also help your car perform smoothly 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. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
