Oil Change Q&A for Your 2004 Mercedes-Benz C240

  • What can low oil do to my Mercedes-Benz C240 engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, overheat, 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? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d 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 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. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
