1990 Mercedes-Benz 560SEL Drivetrain Repair

What Does the Drivetrain Do In Your 1990 Mercedes-Benz 560SEL

Your 560SEL drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the wheels. It spans the full length of your Mercedes-Benz, from back to front. It’s one of your 560SEL’s most complex systems and includes everything after the engine transmission: differentials, driveshafts, joints, axles, and wheels. When you maintain the drivetrain in your 1990 Mercedes-Benz 560SEL, you help maintain your vehicle's power. You can help prevent repairs by checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears according to Mercedes-Benz's recommendations.

When to Get Mercedes-Benz 560SEL Drivetrain Repairs

Drivetrains for front, rear, and all-wheel-drive and 4WD vehicles are quite different, so you don't want to go to just anyone for drivetrain repair. You want to go to Firestone Complete Auto Care. We can help repair all of your 1990 Mercedes-Benz 560SEL drivetrain components including the driveshaft, CV axles, and CV joints. Your Mercedes-Benz could be crying out for driveshaft repair if you notice heavy vibrations in your floorboards, clunks when shifting, resistance when turning, or vibration as your vehicle accelerates. There isn’t necessarily a concrete timeframe for when drivetrain repair will be needed. The system's pieces and parts don't necessarily have a "shelf life." Your driving style and climate can have a lot to do with how the drivetrain system ages. Your best bet is to visit Firestone Complete Auto Care when you first notice a problem with how your Mercedes-Benz 560SEL drives.

Is normal to wonder whether or not 1990 Mercedes-Benz 560SEL drivetrain repair is expensive. Some smaller differential fixes, like seal or gasket replacement, can fall in the more affordable category. But bigger repairs, like gear or bearing replacement, require more labor and can therefore be more expensive.
