Is it time for an engine tune-up?

Routine Engine Tune-Up Service for Your Mercedes-Benz 190D

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 1988 Mercedes-Benz 190D. One option is the standard Firestone Tune-Up.

The second service focuses on your 190D's filters, specifically replacing the air filter and fuel filter. Our third service is a thorough cleaning of the fuel system. During this type of tune-up, we use a three-step process to get rid of harmful varnish, dirt, and carbon deposit buildup in your 190D’s fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. The result? Restored fuel system performance. Here’s something to remember when choosing services: the mileage and service history of your 190D can determine what kind of service it needs. If you’re not sure what services are the best fit for your car, let us help! Chat with a Firestone technician before you jump into a specific service to ensure your engine tune-up money is well-spent.

Always replace your spark plugs on time based on Mercedes-Benz’s recommendations.
