Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Mercedes-Benz 300SL Running Newer, Longer

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1991 Mercedes-Benz 300SL for factory-recommended routine maintenance 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. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your 300SL's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1991 Mercedes-Benz 300SL. 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. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Mercedes-Benz 300SL 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, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your 300SL stranded. Your Mercedes-Benz 300SL won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1991 Mercedes-Benz 300SL running newer, longer. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1991 300SL.

A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 1991 Mercedes-Benz 300SL.
