1989 Mercedes-Benz 560SL Tune-Up & Engine Service

Enhance Mercedes-Benz 560SL Performance with a Tune-Up

Is it tune-up time? If you tend to ignore your car until something goes wrong, now is the time to work on that habit, especially if you drive a 1989 Mercedes-Benz 560SL. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your 560SL’s engine. Tune-ups help your engine start smoothly and run efficiently, which can mean better fuel economy (a win for you) and lower emissions (a win for the environment). When you follow the guidelines specified by Mercedes-Benz for your vehicle’s tune-up schedule, you’re taking vital steps toward keeping your 560SL’s engine running smoother, longer.

Mercedes-Benz 560SL Engine Tune-Up Services

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 1989 Mercedes-Benz 560SL. The standard Firestone Tune-Up is one service option. It includes a complete visual inspection of engine components, installation of new spark plugs, and a lifetime warranty on parts*. Another service option pays special attention to the filters in your 560SL. Specifically, we replace the fuel filter and air filter. Yet another service is a fuel system cleaning process, which involves removing varnish, dirt, and carbon deposits that have built up inside the fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate in your 560SL. This can improve your fuel system’s performance (and therefore, your engine’s performance). Consider this when choosing a tune-up service for your 560SL: your vehicle’s maintenance record and mileage can determine which service is best. A one-size-fits-all engine tune-up procedure doesn’t necessarily exist. Chat with a Firestone technician before you jump into a specific service to ensure your engine tune-up money is well-spent.

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

  • Will it hurt my Mercedes-Benz 560SL to drive with old spark plugs? Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so. Spark plugs are small but mighty. The spark of electricity that the plug emits across a small gap creates the ignition for the combustion needed to start your car. Without that spark, your car won't start.
  • What should I do if I see leaks under my 560SL? Puddles could indicate that your vehicle is leaking coolant, oil, or brake fluid. Ignoring these leaks can lead to permanent engine damage, so address these symptoms ASAP with a tune-up service.
  • Are hard starts and stops bad for my Mercedes-Benz 560SL engine? Hard starts and stops put extra wear and tear on engine components. Smooth, gradual starts and stops, on the other hand, are a great way to help your engine run better. They can also help maximize your fuel economy.
