1991 Mercedes-Benz 560SEC Tune-Up & Engine Service

Tune-Ups to Help Your Mercedes-Benz 560SEC Run Better

Is your engine overdue for a tune-up? If you're the type of driver who waits for something to go wrong with your vehicle, it could be time for a new way of doing things, particularly if you want to keep your 1991 Mercedes-Benz 560SEC in tip-top shape. Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your 560SEC. They're designed to help your engine start easier and run more efficiently, so you can enjoy improved fuel economy and lower emissions. When you follow the guidelines specified by Mercedes-Benz for your vehicle’s tune-up schedule, you’re taking vital steps toward keeping your 560SEC’s engine running smoother, longer.

Routine Engine Tune-Up Service for Your Mercedes-Benz 560SEC

Your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care location has several options to choose from when it comes to Mercedes-Benz 560SEC engine tune-up services. The first is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. It includes a complete visual inspection of engine components, installation of new spark plugs, and a lifetime warranty on parts*. Another service option pays special attention to the filters in your 560SEC. Specifically, we replace the fuel filter and air filter. Yet another service is a fuel system cleaning process, which involves removing varnish, dirt, and carbon deposits that have built up inside the fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate in your 560SEC. The result? Restored fuel system performance. Consider this when choosing a tune-up service for your 560SEC: your vehicle’s maintenance record and mileage can determine which service is best. A one-size-fits-all engine tune-up procedure doesn’t necessarily exist. Talk to a technician about your driving style, mileage, and service history to learn more about your vehicle's specific needs.

1991 Mercedes-Benz 560SEC Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • Will it hurt my Mercedes-Benz 560SEC to drive with old spark plugs? 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 should I do if I see leaks under my 560SEC? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your Mercedes-Benz 560SEC. 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.
  • What do hard starts and stops do to my 560SEC 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.
