How Often to Change 1993 Mercedes-Benz 600SEL Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1993 Mercedes-Benz 600SEL? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Mercedes-Benz recommends having your 1993 Mercedes-Benz 600SEL’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your 600SEL may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Mercedes-Benz if you regularly haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Mercedes-Benz 600SEL. 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.

Mercedes-Benz has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best oil for 1993 Mercedes-Benz 600SEL vehicles. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, regulate engine temperature, and prevent harmful substances from accumulating in the engine. In an oil change service, a technician will change your 600SEL's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off important fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can drive easy knowing that we strive to do what's best for your vehicle and take into account your driving style, and odometer.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1993 Mercedes-Benz 600SEL

  • What can low oil do to my Mercedes-Benz 600SEL engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and cause your 600SEL’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 600SEL 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. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Mercedes-Benz 600SEL exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
