How Often to Change 2011 Mercedes-Benz CL550 Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2011 Mercedes-Benz CL550? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know all about motor oil, too. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Mercedes-Benz recommends changing your 2011 CL550’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Mercedes-Benz-recommended oil change intervals, your CL550 may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Mercedes-Benz if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, enjoy off-roading, or drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Mercedes-Benz CL550. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

Mercedes-Benz has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 2011 Mercedes-Benz CL550 vehicles.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2011 Mercedes-Benz CL550

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Mercedes-Benz CL550? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Mercedes-Benz CL550 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 oil on my own? 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 changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Mercedes-Benz exhaust smoke gray or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
