1999 Mercedes-Benz C280 Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Mercedes-Benz C280 motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to Mercedes-Benz C280 engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Mercedes-Benz C280 oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform 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. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
