Question about Mercedes-Benz SL550

1 Answer

My 2007 SL550 recommends oil/filter change once a year. Even with synthetic oil I am a bit concerned that is frequent enough. I drive it about 10k miles a year. What are your thoughts. Thanks

Need to know what kind of oil mt 2007 RAV4 uses.


Your 2007 RAV4 requires 4.5 quarts SAE 5w20 with filter change. I use Pennzoil and highly recommend it but all major brands are good. Use a quality filter such as Wix, Purolator, or Bosch. Change your oil/filter every 5,000 miles if using conventional oil and every 7,000 miles if using synthetic if you drive normally.

Believe it or not, it is normal for these engines to use about a quart every 2000 even when they are essentially new. Note that I said, "use", not "burn". The combination of higher compression and operating temperatures causes oil to pass through the engine. You might notice your tail pipes have a good coating on the inside. I managed to slow the process by converting to Mobil 1 0W40. I get much better performance and I only use a quart every 3500-4000.

you will get conficting views on this but Toyota worldwide use fully synthetic from new out of the factory.BUT in Europe use semi synthetic for 20k service intervals...personally I would use fully synthetic untill 75k then semi after.and change the oil/filter every 10k.my own car has over 300k and uses a pint every 10k,which is acceptable.

How many miles you have to change oil in 2007 e


Depends on the type of oil, temperature, and whether short hops or highway, but in general one changes oil twice a year. With the better synthetics you could go a whole year.

How often should I change the oil in my 2007 New Beetle


Hi:
The standard rule of thumb is 3000 miles, but you can adjust that a bit longer if you don't drive hard or drive thru dirty conditions.

NEED OIL CHANGE


I would use 20/50 SE synthetic motor oil or high mileage or if you have the money, Amsoil is also great. Also change your filter every time and keep your oil changed about 3000 miles or so. It is overkill to change the synthetic and oil filter frequently, but will very good for your motor.

Normal Maintenance


I would change the oil to a premium synthetic such as Mobil 1 or Castrol. The oil weight should be what your owner's manual recommends. If you do have the owner's manual normal maintenance should be listed, otherwise do a search on the Internet. Using a good synthetic oil allows you to change oil and filter less frequently, say 5 to 10K miles. I change mine once per year unless I've done lots of city, stop and go driving. Nice car, glad you want to take care of it!
