Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your 420SEL. Tune-ups help your engine start smoothly and run efficiently, which can lead to lower emission levels and better fuel economy.

Routine Engine Tune-Up Service for Your Mercedes-Benz 420SEL

Your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care location has several options to choose from when it comes to Mercedes-Benz 420SEL engine tune-up services. The first is the standard Firestone Tune-Up.

Another service option pays special attention to the filters in your 420SEL. Specifically, we replace the fuel filter and air 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 420SEL's fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. The result? Restored fuel system performance. Here’s something to remember when choosing services: the mileage and service history of your 420SEL can determine what kind of service it needs.

Questions About 1987 Mercedes-Benz 420SEL Engine Tune-Ups

  • What happens if my Mercedes-Benz 420SEL spark plugs fail? 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 420SEL? 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 420SEL engine? Hard stops and starts can lead to premature wear on your engine’s components. Lighten up that lead foot and opt for steady, fluid starts and stops instead. Your engine (and your passengers!) will thank you.
