What is the recommended maintenance schedule for the 1990 Mercedes-Benz 300TE?

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

When it comes to your Mercedes-Benz 300TE, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your 300TE has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. But how do you know what service to get and when? It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine 300TE maintenance. Just follow your 1990 Mercedes-Benz 300TE maintenance schedule!

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 fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your 300TE's life, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 1990 Mercedes-Benz 300TE problems later.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Mercedes-Benz 300TE

Bring your 1990 Mercedes-Benz 300TE to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your 300TE. 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 300TE. If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and 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. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the life expectancy of your Mercedes-Benz 300TE battery. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your 300TE stranded. Your Mercedes-Benz 300TE won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can help your 1990 Mercedes-Benz 300TE's engine run smoother. See Mercedes-Benz's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1990 300TE in the chart at the top of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 1990 Mercedes-Benz 300TE.
