How Often Should I Change the Oil in a Rolls-Royce?

mechanic changing oil


We recommend an oil change frequency of roughly 3,000 to 7,000 miles for your Rolls-Royce, but you don’t have to keep track on your own. Every new Rolls-Royce has been designed with a Condition Based Service System which automatically tracks your oil life. We’ll receive information on your vehicle via the Rolls-Royce CarData, and contact you directly when it’s time to schedule service.

Why Should You Monitor Your Rolls-Royce Oil Change Frequency?

There’s a world of difference between the high-end luxury vehicles made by Rolls-Royce, and the cars you’ll see more commonly on the roads near Los Angeles and Glendale. However, in one respect, there’s not much difference at all: Your Rolls-Royce requires regular oil changes and maintenance checks in order to continue to perform at its best.  Without regular synthetic oil changes, deposits will build up in your motor oil, and it won’t be able to redistribute engine heat as effectively. Driving a Rolls-Royce with old oil or low oil levels could lead to significant, permanent damage when overheating occurs.

Rolls-Royce Oil Change: Frequently Asked Questions

I don’t put many miles on my Rolls-Royce. How often should I change my oil?

Perhaps you only take your Rolls-Royce out on special occasions. Even if you go long periods without driving, you should know that oil will break down over time, even if it isn’t collecting grime or being used. You should get your oil changed at least once or twice a year in order to prevent potential issues.

Can I change the oil in a Rolls-Royce at home?

We understand why some drivers would want to change their own oil. There’s something special about getting up close and personal with a Rolls-Royce, after all. However, drivers who start to feel the DIY spirit should be informed: Changing the oil on a Rolls-Royce requires you to remove the vehicle’s underbody panel, which means you’ll need a vehicle lift of your own.
