Engine Tune-Up Service for Your 1990 Mercedes-Benz 560SEL

Tune-Ups to Help Your Mercedes-Benz 560SEL 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, especially if you drive a 1990 Mercedes-Benz 560SEL. Regular engine tune-ups can optimize your 560SEL’s power on the road. Tune-ups help your engine start smoothly and run efficiently, which can lead to lower emission levels and better fuel economy. When you follow the guidelines specified by Mercedes-Benz for your vehicle’s tune-up schedule, you can rest assured you’re investing in your 560SEL’s long-term engine performance.

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

The Firestone Complete Auto Care location in your community offers several Mercedes-Benz 560SEL engine tune-up services. The first is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. This includes the installation of new spark plugs and a visual inspection of your engine’s components, plus a lifetime warranty on parts*. A second service option replaces the air and fuel filter in your 560SEL. The third tune-up option is a fuel system cleaning service, which is a three-step process that removes varnish, dirt, and carbon deposits on your 560SEL's fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. This goes a long way in boosting your fuel system’s overall performance. Here’s something to remember when choosing services: the mileage and service history of your 560SEL can determine what kind of service it needs. This means that a tune-up service that’s a great fit for another car may not be optimal for yours. Talk to a technician about your driving style, mileage, and service history to learn more about your vehicle's specific needs.

Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A For 1990 Mercedes-Benz 560SELs

  • When should Mercedes-Benz 560SEL spark plugs be replaced? 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 do I do if I see a pool of liquid under my Mercedes-Benz 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 hard starts and stops bad for my Mercedes-Benz 560SEL engine? 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.
