2005 Mercedes-Benz CL55 AMG Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Mercedes-Benz CL55 AMG motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Mercedes-Benz CL55 AMG engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Mercedes-Benz CL55 AMG 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. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Mercedes-Benz CL55 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 the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
