How Often to Change 1993 Mercedes-Benz 300TE Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Mercedes-Benz 300TE’s oil changed? Turn to 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 1993 300TE’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Mercedes-Benz-recommended oil change intervals, your 300TE may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice an unusual amount of 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 go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt 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.

1993 Mercedes-Benz 300TE Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Mercedes-Benz 300TE motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Mercedes-Benz 300TE 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 300TE oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also help your car perform 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, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
