Here’s Why 1990 Mercedes-Benz 300SEL Scheduled Maintenance Matters

Take care of your Mercedes-Benz 300SEL and it'll take care of you. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your 300SEL could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine 300SEL maintenance. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1990 Mercedes-Benz 300SEL!

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, recommended maintenance usually includes services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your 300SEL running for longer, increase your vehicle safety, and prevent common 1990 Mercedes-Benz 300SEL problems.

Overview of Essential Mercedes-Benz 300SEL Maintenance Needs

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1990 Mercedes-Benz 300SEL and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your 300SEL. 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 1990 Mercedes-Benz 300SEL. 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. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Mercedes-Benz 300SEL 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. Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty 300SEL) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Mercedes-Benz 300SEL 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 prevent premature wear on your 1990 Mercedes-Benz 300SEL engine. To learn how often Mercedes-Benz recommends you have the oil changed in your 1990 300SEL, 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 1990 Mercedes-Benz 300SEL.

Routine upkeep for your Mercedes-Benz 300SEL suspension and steering system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, provide Mercedes-Benz 300SEL steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. Components within your Mercedes-Benz 300SEL's steering system require regular maintenance.

Without routine Mercedes-Benz 300SEL maintenance, 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. Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too. At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we have what it takes to provide top-notch service for your Mercedes-Benz 300SEL engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning.
