Tune-Ups to Help Your Mercedes-Benz 300CE Run Better

Is it time for an engine 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 1990 Mercedes-Benz 300CE’s engine to last for a long time. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your 300CE’s engine. They're designed to help your engine start easier and run more efficiently, which can mean better fuel economy (a win for you) and lower emissions (a win for the environment). When you follow the guidelines specified by Mercedes-Benz for your vehicle’s tune-up schedule, you’re taking vital steps toward keeping your 300CE’s engine running smoother, longer.

Routine Engine Tune-Up Service for Your Mercedes-Benz 300CE

Your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care location has several options to choose from when it comes to Mercedes-Benz 300CE engine tune-up services. The first is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. The standard Firestone Tune-Up includes new spark plugs (and installation!), a thorough inspection of engine components, and a lifetime parts warranty*. Another service option pays special attention to the filters in your 300CE. 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 300CE's fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. The result? Restored fuel system performance. Consider this when choosing a tune-up service for your 300CE: your vehicle’s maintenance record and mileage can determine which service is best.

Questions About 1990 Mercedes-Benz 300CE Engine Tune-Ups

  • Will it hurt my Mercedes-Benz 300CE to drive with old spark plugs? When it’s time to replace the spark plugs, don’t delay. These small (but vital!) parts provide the electric spark that your car needs in order to start, and old spark plugs can prevent your car from starting at all. Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so.
  • What do I do if I see a pool of liquid under my Mercedes-Benz 300CE? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your Mercedes-Benz 300CE. 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 300CE 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.
