How Often to Get 1991 Mercedes-Benz 560SEL Oil Changes

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1991 Mercedes-Benz 560SEL? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than 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.”

Your 1991 560SEL’s oil should be changed according to Mercedes-Benz’s recommended oil change intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your 560SEL in the above table. Outside of Mercedes-Benz-recommended oil change intervals, your 560SEL 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 see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Mercedes-Benz if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Mercedes-Benz 560SEL. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What Type of Oil Does My Mercedes-Benz 560SEL Need?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 1991 Mercedes-Benz 560SEL motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care.

During an oil change, an auto technician will change your 560SEL’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, check all of your other filters, top-off important fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your 560SEL by considering your driving preferences, and mileage.

1991 Mercedes-Benz 560SEL Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Mercedes-Benz 560SEL? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and cause your Mercedes-Benz 560SEL engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • How hard is it to change Mercedes-Benz 560SEL oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d 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? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
