Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1993 Mercedes-Benz 500SEL? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your 500SEL may need a replacement battery sooner. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Mercedes-Benz 500SEL battery, and so can frequent short drives. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your 500SEL stranded. Your Mercedes-Benz 500SEL won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 1993 Mercedes-Benz 500SEL.

  • When should I have Mercedes-Benz 500SEL alignment checked? Check your car for pothole damage! If you’ve recently hit a pothole (or even if you don’t remember hitting one… they can be sneaky!) check your tire treads, tire sidewalls, and wheels for damage. Potholes can also knock your car out of alignment, so have your alignment checked if you suspect you’ve driven over a rough patch of road lately.
  • When should I switch my Mercedes-Benz 500SEL to high mileage oil? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Mercedes-Benz 500SEL engines.
  • Can Mercedes-Benz dashboard warning lights wait? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Mercedes-Benz 500SEL in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light. Dashboard lights alert you to trouble under the hood.
