Your 1993 300SL’s oil should be changed according to Mercedes-Benz’s recommended oil change intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your 300SL in the above table. Your 300SL may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust.

1993 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Mercedes-Benz 300SL engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Mercedes-Benz 300SL engine failure. 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? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d 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 300SL exhaust smoke grayish or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
