Engine Tune-Up Service for Your 1987 Mercedes-Benz 300E

Tune Into Your Mercedes-Benz 300E

Is it tune-up time? 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 1987 Mercedes-Benz 300E’s engine to last for a long time. Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your 300E. Tune-ups give your engine a boost in efficiency, which can lead to lower emission levels and better fuel economy. When you follow the guidelines specified by Mercedes-Benz for your vehicle’s tune-up schedule, you can rest assured you’re investing in your 300E’s long-term engine performance.

Mercedes-Benz 300E Engine Tune-Up Services

The Firestone Complete Auto Care location in your community offers several Mercedes-Benz 300E engine tune-up services. The standard Firestone Tune-Up is one service option. This includes the installation of new spark plugs and a visual inspection of your engine’s components, plus a lifetime warranty on parts*. A second service option replaces the air and fuel filter in your 300E. Yet another service is a fuel system cleaning process, which involves removing varnish, dirt, and carbon deposits that have built up inside the fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate in your 300E. This goes a long way in boosting your fuel system’s overall performance. Keep in mind that your 300E's mileage and maintenance history can uniquely impact its tune-up needs. A one-size-fits-all engine tune-up procedure doesn’t necessarily exist. Chat with a Firestone technician before you jump into a specific service to ensure your engine tune-up money is well-spent.

Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A For 1987 Mercedes-Benz 300Es

  • When should Mercedes-Benz 300E spark plugs be replaced? 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 do I do if I see a pool of liquid under my Mercedes-Benz 300E? Puddles could indicate an oil leak, coolant leak, or brake fluid leak– all of which can critically hurt your engine. Have your engine inspected as soon as you spot a pool of liquid in your usual parking spot.
  • Are some driving habits better for my Mercedes-Benz 300E engine than others? You can make your driving habits more engine-friendly. Hard starts and stops can increase the stress on engine parts, especially over many years. Boost your fuel economy and care for your engine by using gradual, smooth starts and stops instead.
