1996 Mercedes-Benz C36 AMG Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Mercedes-Benz C36 AMG? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Mercedes-Benz C36 AMG engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • 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. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Mercedes-Benz C36 AMG spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? 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, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
