Your 1985 190D’s oil should be changed according to Mercedes-Benz’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Outside of Mercedes-Benz-recommended oil change intervals, your 190D may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust.

Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Mercedes-Benz 190D.

1985 Mercedes-Benz 190D Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Mercedes-Benz 190D engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Mercedes-Benz 190D engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • How hard is it to change Mercedes-Benz 190D oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Mercedes-Benz 190D spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
