Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A For 1989 Mercedes-Benz 560SELs

  • When should Mercedes-Benz 560SEL spark plugs be replaced? Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so. Without the spark of electricity created by spark plugs, your engine doesn’t have the combustion it needs to start — which could leave you stranded on the road. Always replace your spark plugs on time based on Mercedes-Benz’s recommendations.
  • What should I do if I see leaks under my 560SEL? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your Mercedes-Benz 560SEL. 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 560SEL engine than others? You can make your driving habits more engine-friendly. Hard starts and stops can increase the stress on engine parts, especially over many years. Boost your fuel economy and care for your engine by using gradual, smooth starts and stops instead.
