How Often to Get 1993 Mercedes-Benz 400SEL Oil Changes

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1993 Mercedes-Benz 400SEL? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Mercedes-Benz recommends changing your 1993 400SEL’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your 400SEL may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, 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 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 400SEL. 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.

You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your 400SEL by considering your driving habits, weather and road conditions,

1993 Mercedes-Benz 400SEL Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Mercedes-Benz 400SEL? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Mercedes-Benz 400SEL engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Mercedes-Benz 400SEL oil at home? 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 help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Mercedes-Benz 400SEL exhaust smoke grayish or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of 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, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
