I'm new to Mathemtica and I'm trying to differentiate a multi-variable
f(x,y,z). When doing so I get a recusion limit 256 reached message. 

When examining my equations, I don't see recursion in the expressions.
It should be simple substitution of one expression into the other.
(Its just easier for me to write it that way). 

How do I know if this is a valid message, and how do I know if my
expressions will actually be solved / simplified by Mathematica if I
increase the recursion limit?

I have 2GB RAM and Mathematica fills it, then the Kernel runs out of
memory and stops trying to solve the problem.
