1991 Mercedes-Benz 420SEL Tune-Up & Engine Service

Enhance Mercedes-Benz 420SEL Performance with a Tune-Up

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, now is the time to work on that habit, especially if you drive a 1991 Mercedes-Benz 420SEL. Regular engine tune-ups can optimize your 420SEL’s power on the road. 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’re taking vital steps toward keeping your 420SEL’s engine running smoother, longer.

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

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 1991 Mercedes-Benz 420SEL. The first is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. This includes the installation of new spark plugs and a visual inspection of your engine’s components, plus a lifetime warranty on parts*. A second service option replaces the air and fuel filter in your 420SEL. 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. This can improve your fuel system’s performance (and therefore, your engine’s performance). Keep in mind that your 420SEL's mileage and maintenance history can uniquely impact its tune-up needs. This means that a tune-up service that’s a great fit for another car may not be optimal for yours. Ask one of our technicians what your vehicle needs, based on your driving habits and your car’s current condition.

1991 Mercedes-Benz 420SEL Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • What happens if my Mercedes-Benz 420SEL spark plugs fail? When it’s time to replace the spark plugs, don’t delay. These small (but vital!) parts provide the electric spark that your car needs in order to start, and old spark plugs can prevent your car from starting at all. Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so.
  • What do I do if I see a pool of liquid under my Mercedes-Benz 420SEL? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your Mercedes-Benz 420SEL. It could signal a coolant leak, brake fluid leak, or an oil leak. Let any one of these leaks linger and it could cause engine damage.
  • Are some driving habits better for my Mercedes-Benz 420SEL engine than others? 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.
