How Often to Get 1987 Mercedes-Benz 190E Oil Changes

Not sure how or where to get your Mercedes-Benz 190E’s oil changed? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know all about motor oil, too. 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.”

Mercedes-Benz recommends having your 1987 Mercedes-Benz 190E’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. 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, 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, enjoy off-roading, 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.

What Type of Oil Does My Mercedes-Benz 190E Need?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 1987 Mercedes-Benz 190E motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Mercedes-Benz has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 1987 190E. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, maintain proper engine temperature, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. In an oil change service, an auto technician will change your 190E’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off important fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your 190E by taking into account your driving habits, and the number of miles on your odometer.

1987 Mercedes-Benz 190E Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Mercedes-Benz 190E motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to Mercedes-Benz 190E engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Mercedes-Benz oil on my own? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. 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 190E exhaust smoke grayish 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, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
