Mercedes-Benz recommends changing your 1990 300E’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your 300E 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.

More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Mercedes-Benz 300E. 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.

1990 Mercedes-Benz 300E Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Mercedes-Benz 300E motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Mercedes-Benz 300E engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Mercedes-Benz 300E oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. 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 300E 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. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
