We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Your 2005 CL500’s oil should be changed according to Mercedes-Benz’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Mercedes-Benz-recommended oil change intervals, your CL500 may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice excess vehicle exhaust.

In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Mercedes-Benz CL500. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

2005 Mercedes-Benz CL500 Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Mercedes-Benz CL500 engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and cause your CL500’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 CL500 oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Mercedes-Benz CL500 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. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
