Engine Tune-Up for Mercedes-Benz 300SEL

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 1991 Mercedes-Benz 300SEL. The first is the standard Firestone Tune-Up.

A second service option replaces the air and fuel filter in your 300SEL. Our third service is a thorough cleaning of the fuel system. During this type of tune-up, we use a three-step process to get rid of harmful varnish, dirt, and carbon deposit buildup in your 300SEL’s fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate.

Questions About 1991 Mercedes-Benz 300SEL Engine Tune-Ups

  • What happens if my Mercedes-Benz 300SEL spark plugs fail? Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so. Without the spark of electricity created by spark plugs, your engine doesn’t have the combustion it needs to start — which could leave you stranded on the road. Always replace your spark plugs on time based on Mercedes-Benz’s recommendations.
  • What do I do if I see a pool of liquid under my Mercedes-Benz 300SEL? Puddles could indicate that your vehicle is leaking coolant, oil, or brake fluid. Ignoring these leaks can lead to permanent engine damage, so address these symptoms ASAP with a tune-up service.
  • Are some driving habits better for my Mercedes-Benz 300SEL engine than others? Hard stops and starts can lead to premature wear on your engine’s components. Lighten up that lead foot and opt for steady, fluid starts and stops instead. Your engine (and your passengers!) will thank you.
