This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Mercedes-Benz themselves. Depending on driving conditions and climate in your area (as well as other contributing factors, like your personal travel habits), your car’s scheduled maintenance needs may vary; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations.

Overview of Essential Mercedes-Benz 560SEL Maintenance Needs

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1990 Mercedes-Benz 560SEL and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your 560SEL’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1990 Mercedes-Benz 560SEL. If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and 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. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. 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 even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1990 Mercedes-Benz 560SEL running newer, longer. To learn how often Mercedes-Benz recommends you have the oil changed in your 1990 560SEL, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 1990 Mercedes-Benz 560SEL.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Mercedes-Benz 560SEL can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger. Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, provide the appropriate Mercedes-Benz 560SEL steering and suspension services. This can include things like power steering fluid replacement, wheel alignment adjustments, replacement of struts and wheel bearings, and ball joint lubrication. Components within your Mercedes-Benz 560SEL's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Mercedes-Benz 560SEL maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C. We can help you with all those issues. Our technicians have the knowledge and tools to repair and maintain the heating and cooling systems for your Mercedes-Benz 560SEL’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too.
