Your Guide to 1990 Mercedes-Benz 300E Scheduled Maintenance

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. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. There's no need to guess when it's time to get 300E maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1990 Mercedes-Benz 300E!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Mercedes-Benz, your vehicle manufacturer. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like 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, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and prevent common 1990 Mercedes-Benz 300E problems.

Overview of Essential Mercedes-Benz 300E Maintenance Needs

Bring your 1990 Mercedes-Benz 300E to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your 300E’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Could your 1990 Mercedes-Benz 300E be ready for a new battery? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the life expectancy of your Mercedes-Benz 300E battery. 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. Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty 300E) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Mercedes-Benz 300E could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1990 Mercedes-Benz 300E engine. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1990 300E. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 1990 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!).

These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. Components within your Mercedes-Benz 300E's steering system require regular maintenance.

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!). 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.
