1983 Mercedes-Benz 240D Tune-Up & Engine Service

Enhance Mercedes-Benz 240D Performance with a Tune-Up

Is your engine overdue for a tune-up? If you tend to ignore your car until something goes wrong, now is the time to work on that habit, especially if you want your 1983 Mercedes-Benz 240D’s engine to last for a long time. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your 240D’s engine. They're designed to help your engine start easier and run more efficiently, so you can enjoy improved fuel economy and lower emissions. When you take your car for regular engine tune-ups as recommended by Mercedes-Benz, you invest in your 240D's long-term health and engine performance.

Engine Tune-Up for Mercedes-Benz 240D

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 1983 Mercedes-Benz 240D. The first is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. It includes a complete visual inspection of engine components, installation of new spark plugs, and a lifetime warranty on parts*. Another service option pays special attention to the filters in your 240D. Specifically, we replace the fuel filter and air filter. The third tune-up option is a fuel system cleaning service, which is a three-step process that removes varnish, dirt, and carbon deposits on your 240D'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 240D can determine what kind of service it needs. A one-size-fits-all engine tune-up procedure doesn’t necessarily exist. Talk to a technician about your driving style, mileage, and service history to learn more about your vehicle's specific needs.

1983 Mercedes-Benz 240D Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • Will it hurt my Mercedes-Benz 240D to drive with old spark plugs? Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so. Spark plugs are small but mighty. The spark of electricity that the plug emits across a small gap creates the ignition for the combustion needed to start your car. Without that spark, your car won't start.
  • What should I do if I see leaks under my 240D? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your Mercedes-Benz 240D. It could signal a coolant leak, brake fluid leak, or an oil leak. Let any one of these leaks linger and it could cause engine damage.
  • Are hard starts and stops bad for my Mercedes-Benz 240D engine? Hard stops and starts can lead to premature wear on your engine’s components. Lighten up that lead foot and opt for steady, fluid starts and stops instead. Your engine (and your passengers!) will thank you.
