Oil Change Q&A for Your 1987 Mercedes-Benz 300SDL

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Mercedes-Benz 300SDL? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Mercedes-Benz 300SDL engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Mercedes-Benz 300SDL 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 changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Mercedes-Benz exhaust smoke gray or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
