2009 Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your SLR McLaren’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil 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 SLR McLaren spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
