1993 Mercedes-Benz 400E Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Mercedes-Benz 400E engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Mercedes-Benz 400E engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Mercedes-Benz oil on my own? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. 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 400E 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 caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
