How Often to Get 1989 Mercedes-Benz 300E Oil Changes

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1989 Mercedes-Benz 300E? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know the ins and outs of 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 changing your 1989 300E’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your 300E may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, 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 areas, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Mercedes-Benz 300E. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

1989 Mercedes-Benz 300E Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Mercedes-Benz 300E engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your 300E’s engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • 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. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Mercedes-Benz 300E spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
