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 2001 Mercedes-Benz C240’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your C240 may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Mercedes-Benz recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, 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 C240. 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.

2001 Mercedes-Benz C240 Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Mercedes-Benz C240? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Mercedes-Benz C240 engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Mercedes-Benz C240 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 it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Mercedes-Benz C240 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 caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
