Mercedes-Benz recommends changing your 1987 560SEL’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Outside of Mercedes-Benz-recommended oil change intervals, your 560SEL may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Mercedes-Benz recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, go off-roading a lot, or go long distances at low speeds. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Mercedes-Benz 560SEL. 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 1987 Mercedes-Benz 560SEL

  • What can low oil do to my Mercedes-Benz 560SEL engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your 560SEL’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Mercedes-Benz 560SEL 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. 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 560SEL 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, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
