Your 1989 560SL’s oil should be changed according to Mercedes-Benz’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your 560SL may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the vehicle, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust.

1989 Mercedes-Benz 560SL Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Mercedes-Benz 560SL? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Mercedes-Benz 560SL 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 560SL oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Mercedes-Benz exhaust smoke gray or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
