What to Know About 1996 Mercedes-Benz C220 Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Mercedes-Benz C220 and it'll take care of you. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your C220.

Just follow your 1996 Mercedes-Benz C220 maintenance schedule!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Mercedes-Benz, your vehicle manufacturer.

Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your C220's life, increase your vehicle safety, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 1996 Mercedes-Benz C220 problems later.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Mercedes-Benz C220

Bring your 1996 Mercedes-Benz C220 to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your C220's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1996 Mercedes-Benz C220? 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. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the life expectancy of your Mercedes-Benz C220 battery. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty C220) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Mercedes-Benz C220 won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1996 Mercedes-Benz C220 running newer, longer. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1996 C220. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil.

  • When should I have Mercedes-Benz C220 alignment checked? Check your car for pothole damage!

It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Mercedes-Benz C220 engines.
  •  Why are my Mercedes-Benz dashboard lights on? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Mercedes-Benz C220 in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light.
