1990 Mercedes-Benz 300SEL Drivetrain Service

All About 1990 Mercedes-Benz 300SEL Drivetrain Service

The drivetrain is responsible for transferring power from your 300SEL's engine to its wheels. It runs the full length of your Mercedes-Benz, from the axles to the transmission. It's one of the most complex systems in your 300SEL and is made up of everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. Care for your 1990 Mercedes-Benz 300SEL to maintain its performance power. You can help prevent repairs by checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears according to Mercedes-Benz's recommendations.

When to Get Mercedes-Benz 300SEL Drivetrain Repairs

Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are quite different, so you don't want to go to just anyone for drivetrain repair. You want to go to Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can take care of most 1990 Mercedes-Benz 300SEL drivetrain components including the CV joints, CV axles, and driveshaft. Your 300SEL might need driveshaft repair if you notice clunks when shifting, vibration as your vehicle accelerates, resistance when turning, or heavy vibrations in your floorboards. It's hard to put a timeframe on drivetrain repair. The system's pieces and parts don't necessarily have a "shelf life." A lot depends on your driving style and climate. One of your best courses of action is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice that something feels "off" with your Mercedes-Benz 300SEL.

You might be wondering: how much will it cost to fix the drivetrain in your 1990 Mercedes-Benz 300SEL? Minor differential repairs, like seal or gasket replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. Big repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
