When to Change 2011 Mercedes-Benz CL65 AMG Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Mercedes-Benz CL65 AMG’s oil changed? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Your 2011 CL65 AMG’s oil should be changed according to Mercedes-Benz’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your CL65 AMG may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Mercedes-Benz recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, go off-roading a lot, or go long distances at low speeds. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Mercedes-Benz CL65 AMG. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

2011 Mercedes-Benz CL65 AMG Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Mercedes-Benz CL65 AMG? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Mercedes-Benz CL65 AMG engine to fail. 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. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Mercedes-Benz exhaust smoke gray or blue? 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, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
