Not sure how or where to get your Mercedes-Benz 190E’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know all about motor oil, too. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Your 1985 190E’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. No matter the mileage, your 190E may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Mercedes-Benz recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Mercedes-Benz 190E. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

1985 Mercedes-Benz 190E Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Mercedes-Benz 190E motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and cause your Mercedes-Benz 190E engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Mercedes-Benz oil on my own? 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 exhaust smoke gray or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
