How often should I service my 1987 Mercedes-Benz 560SEL?
When it comes to your Mercedes-Benz 560SEL, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your 560SEL. But how do you know what service to get and when? There's no need to guess when it's time to get 560SEL maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Just follow your 1987 Mercedes-Benz 560SEL maintenance schedule!
Mercedes-Benz knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your 560SEL perform better, increase your vehicle safety, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1987 Mercedes-Benz 560SEL problems in the future.
Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1987 Mercedes-Benz 560SEL and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your 560SEL. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.
Could your 1987 Mercedes-Benz 560SEL be ready for a new battery? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Mercedes-Benz 560SEL battery, and so can frequent short drives. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your Mercedes-Benz 560SEL won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.
Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can help your 1987 Mercedes-Benz 560SEL's engine run smoother. See Mercedes-Benz's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1987 560SEL in the chart at the top of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 1987 Mercedes-Benz 560SEL.
