Not sure how or where to get your Mercedes-Benz 300TD’s oil changed? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know all about motor oil, too. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Your 1984 300TD’s oil should be changed according to Mercedes-Benz’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your 300TD may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Mercedes-Benz if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, enjoy off-roading, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Mercedes-Benz 300TD. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1984 Mercedes-Benz 300TD

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Mercedes-Benz 300TD? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and cause your 300TD’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • 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 buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Mercedes-Benz 300TD spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
