How Often to Get 1989 Mercedes-Benz 190D Oil Changes

Not sure how or where to get your Mercedes-Benz 190D’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Your 1989 190D’s oil should be changed according to Mercedes-Benz’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your 190D may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Mercedes-Benz if you regularly haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, go off-roading a lot, or go long distances at low speeds. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Mercedes-Benz 190D. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1989 Mercedes-Benz 190D

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Mercedes-Benz 190D? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your 190D’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Mercedes-Benz 190D oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Mercedes-Benz exhaust smoke gray or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
