1990 Mercedes-Benz 420SEL Drivetrain Repair & Service

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 1990 Mercedes-Benz 420SEL

Your 420SEL drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the wheels. It spans the length of your vehicle, from the transmission to the axles. It’s a very intricate system of moving parts and is comprised of everything after the engine transmission: driveshafts, axles, joints, differentials, and wheels. Care for your 1990 Mercedes-Benz 420SEL to maintain its performance power. You can help prevent repairs by checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears according to Mercedes-Benz's recommendations.
