How Often Should You Perform a Bentley Oil Change?

oil change
One of the easiest and most important services you can complete for your new or pre-owned Bentley is an oil change. Oil change frequency for a Bentley is every 10,000 miles or 12 months — whichever comes first. Many Los Angeles-area Bentley drivers don’t exceed 10,000 miles a year in their Bentley vehicles, so in most cases, oil changes are completed based on the amount of time that has passed since the last oil service, as opposed to the number of miles driven. Since precise Bentley oil change intervals may vary from model to model, or from year to year, it’s advisable to check your owner’s manual for exact figures before scheduling service.

What Are Some Tips for Oil Changes?

There’s more to completing an oil change than you may realize. Here are a few tips to keep in mind for future oil changes:

  • What if you don’t drive your Bentley very often? No matter what, oil breaks down over time and will lose its potency. Even if you let your Bentley sit for long periods at a time, the oil will break down if you wait too long between changes.
  • What else will you need when performing a Bentley oil change? When you have your car’s oil changed, get an oil filter replacement as well. Our parts center has a wide selection of genuine OEM Bentley parts, which we use during every service.
  • What kind of motor oil is required? Only synthetic oil is approved for your Bentley. Synthetic oil is more expensive but lasts longer and is recommended for high-performance vehicles, like the Bentley Bentayga Speed. Check your owner’s manual to find out which grade of oil your Bentley requires.

Trust an Authorized Repairer for Your Oil Change

Remember, you should always entrust your Bentley oil change to Bentley Authorized Repairers. We know how tempting it can be to reduce your Bentley oil change cost by going to a non-certified mechanic or trying to perform basic maintenance at home in Glendale or Arcadia. However, with a highly-complex Bentley vehicle, you might find that the process is considerably more trying than you’re used to.

You will likely need to raise the vehicle off the ground and remove the undercover before you can even get started. Even experienced DIY wrenchers will be testing their skills if they’re used to working on other models. The Bentley Authorized Repairers at Bentley Pasadena know exactly what your vehicle requires, and our specialized, state-of-the-art service center allows us to accelerate the process without compromising on quality. If you do decide to forgo the Bentley oil change cost and replace your motor oil at home, talk to a service expert first. We’ll ensure that you have the correct products and equipment for the job.

When Should I Check My Car’s Oil Level?

It’s a smart idea to check your car’s oil level at least once a month. Newer Bentley models all include electronic oil monitors, so you can read your oil level without getting your hands dirty. Simply check your dashboard every so often and watch the oil level gauge. Older Bentley models may still have a dipstick, and with some models, you may have to check the oil level manually. Regular checks help ensure there are no leaks, which can be detrimental to the engine’s performance and even lead to lasting damage if left unchecked. If you notice anything unusual, schedule a service appointment as soon as possible to get an oil change at Bentley Pasadena.
