Scheduled Maintenance for Your 1990 Mercedes-Benz 350SDL

What is the recommended maintenance schedule for the 1990 Mercedes-Benz 350SDL?

Here’s Why 1990 Mercedes-Benz 350SDL Scheduled Maintenance Matters

You want your Mercedes-Benz 350SDL to last as long as possible. With the right maintenance at the right time, your 350SDL 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 350SDL maintenance. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1990 Mercedes-Benz 350SDL!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Mercedes-Benz themselves. 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, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your 350SDL running for longer, increase your vehicle safety, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1990 Mercedes-Benz 350SDL problems in the future.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Mercedes-Benz 350SDL Running Newer, Longer

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1990 Mercedes-Benz 350SDL for factory-recommended routine maintenance and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your 350SDL. 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.

Could your 1990 Mercedes-Benz 350SDL be ready for a new battery? 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 350SDL 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 350SDL stranded. Your Mercedes-Benz 350SDL won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1990 Mercedes-Benz 350SDL engine. To learn how often Mercedes-Benz recommends you have the oil changed in your 1990 350SDL, check out the information table at the beginning 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. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 1990 Mercedes-Benz 350SDL? We can help with that, too!

Periodic service to the steering system in your Mercedes-Benz 350SDL can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, provide the appropriate Mercedes-Benz 350SDL steering and suspension services. This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. Components within your Mercedes-Benz 350SDL's steering system require regular maintenance.

Without routine Mercedes-Benz 350SDL maintenance, you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). We can help you with all those issues. Our technicians have the knowledge and tools to repair and maintain the heating and cooling systems for your Mercedes-Benz 350SDL’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too. Is your Mercedes-Benz 350SDL radiator in need of replacement? We’ve got your back. A/C smelling musty? We’re here to fix that, too.

Take an active role in maintaining your 1990 Mercedes-Benz 350SDL. Get answers to common Mercedes-Benz 350SDL maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Mercedes-Benz 350SDL? Check your car for pothole damage! If you’ve recently hit a pothole (or even if you don’t remember hitting one… they can be sneaky!) check your tire treads, tire sidewalls, and wheels for damage. Potholes can also knock your car out of alignment, so have your alignment checked if you suspect you’ve driven over a rough patch of road lately.
  • When should I switch my Mercedes-Benz 350SDL to high mileage oil? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Mercedes-Benz 350SDL engines.
  • Can Mercedes-Benz dashboard warning lights wait? It's better to get them addressed as soon as possible. An illuminated dashboard light means something in your vehicle isn't functioning like it should. Letting problems linger can mean bad news for your Mercedes-Benz 350SDL, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
