Your 2013 CL550’s oil should be changed according to Mercedes-Benz’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2013 Mercedes-Benz CL550

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Mercedes-Benz CL550? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, overheat, 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? 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 changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Mercedes-Benz CL550 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
