Your 2010 GL450’s oil should be changed according to Mercedes-Benz’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Mercedes-Benz-recommended oil change intervals, your GL450 may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or see an excess amount of vehicle 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, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Mercedes-Benz GL450. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

2010 Mercedes-Benz GL450 Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Mercedes-Benz GL450? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and cause your Mercedes-Benz GL450 engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Mercedes-Benz oil on my own? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. 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 help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Mercedes-Benz GL450 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
