1991 Mercedes-Benz 190E Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Mercedes-Benz 190E? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to Mercedes-Benz 190E engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Mercedes-Benz 190E 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. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, 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. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
