Oil Change Q&A for Your 2017 Mercedes-Benz G550

  • Should I check my Mercedes-Benz G550 motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Mercedes-Benz G550 engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Mercedes-Benz G550 oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Mercedes-Benz exhaust smoke gray or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
