Is it time for an engine tune-up? If you're the type of driver who waits for something to go wrong with your vehicle, it could be time for a new way of doing things, particularly if you want to keep your 1984 Mercedes-Benz 380SE in tip-top shape. Regular engine tune-ups can optimize your 380SE’s power on the road. They're designed to help your engine start easier and run more efficiently, which can mean better fuel economy (a win for you) and lower emissions (a win for the environment). When you follow the guidelines specified by Mercedes-Benz for your vehicle’s tune-up schedule, you invest in your 380SE's long-term health and engine performance.
The Firestone Complete Auto Care location in your community offers several Mercedes-Benz 380SE engine tune-up services. The first is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. The standard Firestone Tune-Up includes new spark plugs (and installation!), a thorough inspection of engine components, and a lifetime parts warranty*. The second service focuses on your 380SE's filters, specifically replacing the air filter and fuel filter. The third tune-up option is a fuel system cleaning service, which is a three-step process that removes varnish, dirt, and carbon deposits on your 380SE's fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. The result? Restored fuel system performance. Keep in mind that your 380SE'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.
Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for your next 1984 380SE engine tune-up. Follow Mercedes-Benz's recommended maintenance schedule or book an appointment as soon as you notice one of the following: decreased gas mileage, "rough" idling or stalling when stopped, an illuminated check engine light on your dashboard, or a knocking sound when the engine is running.
