Questions About 1985 Mercedes-Benz 500SEC Engines

  • Why does the check engine light come on when I start my 500SEC? It’s usually normal for your check engine light to turn on upon ignition. It’s just your 500SEC firing up its circuits. The light should turn off in a bit, but come see us if it doesn't.
  • Why is my Mercedes-Benz 500SEC making engine noise? Strange under-the-hood noises can point to problems within your Mercedes-Benz 500SEC engine. Tapping or knocking could mean you're low on oil. A high-pitched whistle could signal an intake leak or misaligned belt. Squealing may be caused by a loose fan belt, and grinding might be coming from the brakes, not the engine.
  • What could damage a Mercedes-Benz engine? [ordered-list-1-item-3-1]Are you unknowingly damaging your Mercedes-Benz 500SEC engine? Certain driving habits can hurt your engine. These habits include driving on an empty fuel tank, revving the engine while still in Park, or slamming the gas pedal while the engine is still cold. Help sustain your engine’s performance and efficiency by staying miles away from these bad driving practices.
  • Can I put water in my Mercedes-Benz 500SEC radiator? An emergency is the only time you should consider putting water in your radiator. Outside of that, it’s recommended you use a pre-mixed coolant or a 50/50 blend of water and coolant. However, if you need to continue driving your 500SEC when you’re out of coolant, having water in the coolant reservoir is better than nothing.
  • Why did my 500SEC engine suddenly stop? If your 500SEC car engine suddenly stops, it could be due to overheating, low fuel, a faulty ignition system, sensor problems, electrical system trouble, or mechanical issues.
