Mercedes-Benz recommends changing your 2016 GL350’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Outside of Mercedes-Benz-recommended oil change intervals, your GL350 may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, 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, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Mercedes-Benz GL350. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

2016 Mercedes-Benz GL350 Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Mercedes-Benz GL350 motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Mercedes-Benz GL350 engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • 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. Getting a professional oil change reduces 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 GL350 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
