1990 Mercedes-Benz 300CE Oil Change Service

When to Change 1990 Mercedes-Benz 300CE Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1990 Mercedes-Benz 300CE? Get the advice you need at 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.

Mercedes-Benz recommends having your 1990 Mercedes-Benz 300CE’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your 300CE may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Mercedes-Benz if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, adventure off-road, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Mercedes-Benz 300CE. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What Type of Oil Does My Mercedes-Benz 300CE Need?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Mercedes-Benz 300CE. Mercedes-Benz has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best oil for 1990 Mercedes-Benz 300CE vehicles. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, keep the engine cool, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. In an oil change service, one of our techs will change your 300CE’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off essential fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your 300CE by taking into account your driving style, and mileage.

1990 Mercedes-Benz 300CE Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Mercedes-Benz 300CE motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your 300CE’s 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 300CE oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might 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 300CE spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
