When to Change 1983 Mercedes-Benz 240D Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Mercedes-Benz 240D’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than 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 1983 Mercedes-Benz 240D’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your 240D may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Mercedes-Benz recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, enjoy off-roading, or go long distances at low speeds. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Mercedes-Benz 240D. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

1983 Mercedes-Benz 240D Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Mercedes-Benz 240D? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Mercedes-Benz 240D 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 240D oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Mercedes-Benz 240D spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
