Mercedes-Benz recommends changing your 1991 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 notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Mercedes-Benz if you regularly haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. 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.

1991 Mercedes-Benz 300E Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Mercedes-Benz 300E engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to Mercedes-Benz 300E engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my 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 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 also with your vehicle 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. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
