Take care of your Mercedes-Benz 300D and it'll take care of you. With proactive maintenance, your 300D has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more.

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Mercedes-Benz themselves.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Mercedes-Benz 300D Running Newer, Longer

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1991 Mercedes-Benz 300D? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits.

Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your 300D stranded. Your Mercedes-Benz 300D won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can help your 1991 Mercedes-Benz 300D's engine run smoother.

Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 1991 Mercedes-Benz 300D.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Mercedes-Benz 300D? Check your car for pothole damage! If you’ve recently hit a pothole (or even if you don’t remember hitting one… they can be sneaky!) check your tire treads, tire sidewalls, and wheels for damage.

It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Mercedes-Benz 300D engines.
  •  Why are my Mercedes-Benz dashboard lights on? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Mercedes-Benz 300D in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light.
