Your 2014 C300’s oil should be changed according to Mercedes-Benz’s recommended oil change 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 notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Mercedes-Benz if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Mercedes-Benz C300. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2014 Mercedes-Benz C300

  • What can low oil do to my Mercedes-Benz C300 engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Mercedes-Benz C300 engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Mercedes-Benz oil on my own? 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. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Mercedes-Benz C300 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
