How often should I service my 1987 Mercedes-Benz 300E?

Here’s Why 1987 Mercedes-Benz 300E Scheduled Maintenance Matters

You want your Mercedes-Benz 300E to last as long as possible. With proactive maintenance, your 300E has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. But how do you know what service to get and when? Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your 300E, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Just follow your 1987 Mercedes-Benz 300E maintenance schedule!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Mercedes-Benz themselves. 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 fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your 300E running for longer, keep you safer on the road, and prevent common 1987 Mercedes-Benz 300E problems.

Overview of Essential Mercedes-Benz 300E Maintenance Needs

Bring your 1987 Mercedes-Benz 300E to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. 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.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1987 Mercedes-Benz 300E? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your 300E may need a replacement battery sooner. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Mercedes-Benz 300E battery. 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 300E stranded. Your Mercedes-Benz 300E could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can help your 1987 Mercedes-Benz 300E's engine run smoother. To learn how often Mercedes-Benz recommends you have the oil changed in your 1987 300E, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. 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 1987 Mercedes-Benz 300E.

Routine upkeep for your Mercedes-Benz 300E suspension and steering system can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. 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. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Mercedes-Benz 300E's steering and suspension system.

If you fall behind on routine Mercedes-Benz 300E maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Mercedes-Benz 300E cooling, heating, and climate control system. Need a new Mercedes-Benz 300E radiator? We can take care of that. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We’re here to fix that, too.
