Take care of your Mercedes-Benz 400SEL and it'll take care of you. With the right maintenance at the right time, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your 400SEL. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your 400SEL, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1993 Mercedes-Benz 400SEL!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Mercedes-Benz, your vehicle manufacturer. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; 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 400SEL's life, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and prevent common 1993 Mercedes-Benz 400SEL problems.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Mercedes-Benz 400SEL

Bring your 1993 Mercedes-Benz 400SEL to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your 400SEL’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Could your 1993 Mercedes-Benz 400SEL 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). Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Mercedes-Benz 400SEL battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your Mercedes-Benz 400SEL could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can help your 1993 Mercedes-Benz 400SEL's engine run smoother. See Mercedes-Benz's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1993 400SEL in the chart at the top of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. 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 1993 Mercedes-Benz 400SEL? We can help with that, too!

Periodic service to the steering system in your Mercedes-Benz 400SEL can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. 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 400SEL 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. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Mercedes-Benz 400SEL's steering system with regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Mercedes-Benz 400SEL maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), 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!). Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too. At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we have what it takes to provide top-notch service for your Mercedes-Benz 400SEL engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Need a new Mercedes-Benz 400SEL radiator? We can take care of that. A/C smelling musty? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 1993 Mercedes-Benz 400SEL maintenance.
