1991 Mercedes-Benz 300SE Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Mercedes-Benz 300SE engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Mercedes-Benz 300SE engine failure. 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 300SE 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 it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Mercedes-Benz exhaust smoke gray or blue? 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, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
