Is it tune-up time? If you're the type of driver who waits for something to go wrong with your vehicle, now is the time to work on that habit, especially if you drive a 1985 Mercedes-Benz 380SL. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your 380SL’s engine. Tune-ups help your engine start smoothly and run efficiently, so you can enjoy improved fuel economy and lower emissions. When you take your car for regular engine tune-ups as recommended by Mercedes-Benz, you invest in your 380SL's long-term health and engine performance.

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 1985 Mercedes-Benz 380SL. The first is the standard Firestone Tune-Up.

A second service option replaces the air and fuel filter in your 380SL. Our third service is a thorough cleaning of the fuel system. During this type of tune-up, we use a three-step process to get rid of harmful varnish, dirt, and carbon deposit buildup in your 380SL’s fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. This goes a long way in boosting your fuel system’s overall performance. Consider this when choosing a tune-up service for your 380SL: your vehicle’s maintenance record and mileage can determine which service is best.

Questions About 1985 Mercedes-Benz 380SL Engine Tune-Ups

  • When should Mercedes-Benz 380SL spark plugs be replaced? Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so. Without the spark of electricity created by spark plugs, your engine doesn’t have the combustion it needs to start — which could leave you stranded on the road. Always replace your spark plugs on time based on Mercedes-Benz’s recommendations.
  • What do I do if I see a pool of liquid under my Mercedes-Benz 380SL? Puddles could indicate an oil leak, coolant leak, or brake fluid leak– all of which can critically hurt your engine. Have your engine inspected as soon as you spot a pool of liquid in your usual parking spot.
  • Are hard starts and stops bad for my Mercedes-Benz 380SL engine? You can make your driving habits more engine-friendly. Hard starts and stops can increase the stress on engine parts, especially over many years. Boost your fuel economy and care for your engine by using gradual, smooth starts and stops instead.
