    Regular maintenance is the key to enjoying a smooth and safe ride in your Rolls Royce. Some maintenance requirements are measured in years or just “as needed,” while other requirements are scheduled based on mileage.

    Mileage-specific maintenance is not unique to luxury cars, but each vehicle has its own unique schedule to follow, and the Rolls Royce is no exception. Because adhering to the schedule is so important for the longevity and optimal performance of your car, you have to know when it’s time to take your Rolls Royce to the professionals for a tuneup.

    Spark Plug Replacements

    Spark plugs are what allow your vehicle to start. These plugs send an electric current from the ignition coil to the combustion chamber in the engine to provide your car with the power it needs to get on the road.

    Here are some common signs that you need your spark plugs changed:

    • decreased fuel efficiency
    • engine misfiring
    • rough idling
    • slow acceleration
    • car’s engine will not start

    Though spark plug replacement can be unique to any situation involving damage or corrosion, expert automotive technicians recommend having them changed every 30,000 miles as long as they are not experiencing premature malfunction or failure.

    Tire Rotation and Tire Replacement

    Your Rolls Royce allows you to enjoy a smooth and powerful ride, but this is dependent on the condition of your tires. Having your tires rotated and replaced at regular intervals will ensure that you will continue to have a pleasant experience with every drive.

    Familiar signs that you need your tires rotated/replaced:

    • loss of traction, especially in wet, icy, or slippery conditions
    • visible wear on the tires (wearing of treads)
    • damage to the drivetrain

    It is recommended that you have your tires rotated every 5,000 to 7,500 miles. This will prevent your tires from wearing too much on one side, which could cause a dip in performance and your ability to control while steering. If you have your tires rotated regularly, you will typically be able to delay tire replacements.

    According to experts, your tires should last for 50,000 miles. Again, how often your Rolls Royce needs a replacement depends on the terrain you drive on and any other unique situation. Barring premature damage, you can expect quality tires to last for quite a long time.

    Oil Changes

    Changing the oil in your Rolls Royce is vital if you expect peak performance while driving. Dirt and debris will find their way into it and the oil itself will break down over time. Whatever the issue, it can leave parts of your car without the lubrication that they need and will eventually cause damage if the oil is not changed regularly.

    When you change your oil:

    • oil is dark brown or black in color
    • engine starts to overheat
    • unusual noises between moving parts under the hood

    The general recommendation is that you have the oil in your Rolls Royce changed every 7,500 to 10,000 miles. This can vary based on the model of Rolls you drive and whether you use conventional or synthetic oil. Synthetic oil needs to be changed between 7,500 to 15,000 miles.

    As always, consult your specific drivers manual for the most accurate oil change maintenance requirements.
