What is the maintenance schedule for the 1986 Mercedes-Benz 300E?
You want your Mercedes-Benz 300E to last as long as possible. With proactive maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your 300E. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your 300E, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Just follow your 1986 Mercedes-Benz 300E maintenance schedule!
Mercedes-Benz knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. Depending on driving conditions and climate in your area (as well as other contributing factors, like your personal travel habits), your car’s scheduled maintenance needs may vary; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your 300E perform better, keep you safer on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 1986 Mercedes-Benz 300E problems later.
Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1986 Mercedes-Benz 300E for factory-recommended routine maintenance and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your 300E. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.
Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1986 Mercedes-Benz 300E. If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and five years). Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Mercedes-Benz 300E battery, and so can frequent short drives. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your Mercedes-Benz 300E won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.
In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1986 Mercedes-Benz 300E running newer, longer. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1986 300E. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 1986 Mercedes-Benz 300E.
Routine upkeep for your Mercedes-Benz 300E suspension and steering system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, provide Mercedes-Benz 300E steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Mercedes-Benz 300E's steering system with regular maintenance.
If you fall behind on routine Mercedes-Benz 300E maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C. We can help you with all those issues. Our technicians have the knowledge and tools to repair and maintain the heating and cooling systems for your Mercedes-Benz 300E’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too. Is it time to replace the radiator in your Mercedes-Benz 300E? We got it. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We'll fix it.
