We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Mercedes-Benz recommends having your 1985 Mercedes-Benz 300D’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your 300D 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 notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Mercedes-Benz recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, go off-roading a lot, or go long distances at low speeds. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Mercedes-Benz 300D. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

1985 Mercedes-Benz 300D Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Mercedes-Benz 300D motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and cause your 300D’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Mercedes-Benz 300D oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. 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 help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Mercedes-Benz exhaust smoke gray or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
