How Often to Get 2013 Mercedes-Benz C300 Oil Changes

Not sure how or where to get your Mercedes-Benz C300’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know all about motor oil, too. 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 2013 C300’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your C300 may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, 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, frequent dusty roads, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Mercedes-Benz C300. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

2013 Mercedes-Benz C300 Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Mercedes-Benz C300 engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Mercedes-Benz C300 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 oil on my own? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. 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 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. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
