Oil and lube services are also our specialties. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Mercedes-Benz recommends having your 1999 Mercedes-Benz C230’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Mercedes-Benz-recommended oil change intervals, your C230 may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, 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, enjoy off-roading, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Mercedes-Benz C230. 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.

1999 Mercedes-Benz C230 Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Mercedes-Benz C230? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your C230’s engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Mercedes-Benz C230 oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Mercedes-Benz exhaust smoke gray or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
