Mercedes-Benz recommends having your 1991 Mercedes-Benz 300SEL’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your 300SEL may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust.

1991 Mercedes-Benz 300SEL Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Mercedes-Benz 300SEL motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and cause your 300SEL’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 your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. 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 300SEL 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, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
