2008 Mercedes-Benz C300 Oil Change

How Often to Change 2008 Mercedes-Benz C300 Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Mercedes-Benz C300’s oil changed? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Mercedes-Benz recommends changing your 2008 C300’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your C300 may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Mercedes-Benz recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Mercedes-Benz C300. 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.

2008 Mercedes-Benz C300 Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Mercedes-Benz C300? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your C300’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Mercedes-Benz C300 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 also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Mercedes-Benz C300 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
