How Often to Get 2016 Mercedes-Benz C350e Oil Changes

Not sure how or where to get your Mercedes-Benz C350e’s oil changed? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know the ins and outs of 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 2016 C350e’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your C350e may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Mercedes-Benz recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, enjoy off-roading, or drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Mercedes-Benz C350e. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

What’s the Right Type of Oil for 2016 Mercedes-Benz C350e?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2016 Mercedes-Benz C350e motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Mercedes-Benz has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best motor oil for your 2016 C350e. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, keep the engine cool, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. During your oil change service, an auto technician will change your C350e’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off important fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your C350e by taking into account your driving habits, and the number of miles on your odometer.

2016 Mercedes-Benz C350e Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Mercedes-Benz C350e motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your C350e’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Mercedes-Benz C350e oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. 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 C350e spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
