Is it time for an engine tune-up? If you tend to ignore your car until something goes wrong, now is the time to work on that habit, especially if you drive a 1991 Mercedes-Benz 300SL. Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your 300SL. Tune-ups give your engine a boost in efficiency, which can mean better fuel economy (a win for you) and lower emissions (a win for the environment). When you take your car for regular engine tune-ups as recommended by Mercedes-Benz, you can rest assured you’re investing in your 300SL’s long-term engine performance.
Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 1991 Mercedes-Benz 300SL. The first is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. This includes the installation of new spark plugs and a visual inspection of your engine’s components, plus a lifetime warranty on parts*. Another service option pays special attention to the filters in your 300SL. Specifically, we replace the fuel filter and air filter. Yet another service is a fuel system cleaning process, which involves removing varnish, dirt, and carbon deposits that have built up inside the fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate in your 300SL. This goes a long way in boosting your fuel system’s overall performance. Keep in mind that your 300SL's mileage and maintenance history can uniquely impact its tune-up needs. A one-size-fits-all engine tune-up procedure doesn’t necessarily exist. Talk to a technician about your driving style, mileage, and service history to learn more about your vehicle's specific needs.
