Your car’s engine is the heart of your vehicle and you should consider the oil as its bloodstream. If you want your engine to run at its best, it’s important to keep the oil at the proper level and to make sure it’s clean. Oil does wear out. Repeated heating and cooling, plus the accumulation of little particles, makes oil thicker. This decreases its ability to flow and can leave harmful deposits in your engine which can cause considerable damage. Mercedes-Benz Certified Service technicians have training in how your vehicle uses oil and how it monitors oil life. Having a Certified Service expert change your oil gives you great service, convenience and a great price.  Plus, nobody knows your vehicle better. Come to #MercedesBenz Brampton’s certified service department when it’s time for your vehicle’s next oil change.


However, there are things you can do in between oil changes.  You can periodically check your oil level. In order to get an accurate reading, make sure the oil is be warm or at normal operating temperature and the vehicle must be on level ground. Be sure to consult your Owner’s Manual for the proper procedure for checking your oil level.


If you need to add oil, use the proper grade of oil  Check with our Mercedes-Benz Brampton service team to find out the right grade of oil for your specific vehicle.  You can also look in your Owner’s Manual. Each oil contains a variety of characteristics that can affect your vehicle’s performance, offer varying levels of engine protection, and can even extend the time between oil changes.


The Oil Life System (OLS) is now standard on most vehicles.  This system continuously monitors operating conditions, including your vehicle’s speed and engine temperature. This information helps determine when it’s time for an oil change.  The OLS also factors in your personal driving habits, as well as the climate in your area. When you see the OLS light come on, be sure to bring your car in for service.
