Mercedes-Benz recommends changing your 2000 S500’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your S500 may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust.

Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Mercedes-Benz S500. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

2000 Mercedes-Benz S500 Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Mercedes-Benz S500 motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to Mercedes-Benz S500 engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Mercedes-Benz S500 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 changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Mercedes-Benz S500 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
