Need more info about 1991 Mercedes-Benz 300TE oil changes? 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. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Mercedes-Benz recommends changing your 1991 300TE’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your 300TE may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Mercedes-Benz recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Mercedes-Benz 300TE. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1991 Mercedes-Benz 300TE

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Mercedes-Benz 300TE? 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, generate excess heat, and cause your Mercedes-Benz 300TE engine to fail. 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 300TE oil at home? 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. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Mercedes-Benz 300TE exhaust smoke grayish or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
