About Mercedes-Benz 300SL

As a very old model with a profound history, Mercedes-Benz 300SL was built by a German multinational automotive corporation Daimler AG and sold under its Mercedes-Benz brand from 1952 to 1953 as racing car, from 1954 to 1963 as a production car and again after a 30-year hiatus, between 1990 and 1993 as sports car/Grand tourer. Originally introduced as the first iteration of the SL-Class grand tourer to replace the Mercedes-Benz W194 (racing car), 300SL was the fastest production car of its day. "SL" in its name means Sport Leicht (Sport Light) and after being manufactured for about fourteen years, the production of 300SL was ended and it was replaced by Mercedes-Benz W113 (230SL) in name and Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG in spirit but in the North American market, it was replaced by the SL320 in 1994.
Mercedes-Benz 300SL made its debut at the 1954 New York Auto Show for the 1954 model year. As a race car designed for road racing competition, it featured a tube chassis and a 3.0 L inline 6-cylinder engine. It was offered in only one body style, 2-door coupe, roadster and built based on the Mercedes-Benz W198 platform. But the more recent 1990-1993 300SL was a two-door, two-seater roadster with an automated (electro-hydraulic), collapsible textile roof, with a shell-like, door-match, tonneau cover and it also came standard with an aluminum detachable hardtop that was fitted by folding the canvas roof down and manually attaching the hardtop. Back then, 300SL got power from a 3.0 L 12-valve SOHC inline 6-cylinder producing 190 horsepower and this engine sent power through either a 5-speed manual or a 5-speed automatic transmission.

Mercedes-Benz 300SL Common Problems & Maintenance Tips

Though the production of Mercedes-Benz 300SL has ended, it remains a favorite of enthusiasts as a priceless collectible. But taking into its age into account, you had better be prepared for these common problems on your 300SL in advance:
First, for old models like Mercedes-Benz 300SL, engine failure is definitely the most common and most serious issue it could suffer from since this problem is often seen as the omen of the vehicle breaking down. To help you to diagnose and solve this problem on your vehicle, some experienced 300SL drivers concluded some practical ways to achieve these. This problem often starts with strange sounds like whining, squealing or rattling from the engine or burnt oil smell in the compartment; if you are unable to notice that, the engine will soon run roughly, misfire, stall, and even suffer from starting issues including hard starting or inability to start; finally, the vehicle will also experience a plummet in power while accelerating and in fuel efficiency. If you could not find above symptoms, then the activated Check Engine Light could be the most obvious sign for you to inspect if the 300SL fuel injector, spark plug, oxygen sensor, air filter, oil filter, engine control module, engine mount, valve cover gasket and timing belt tensioner are in good condition or not.
Second, for Mercedes-Benz 300SL drivers, another horrible problem would be the braking failure, which could bring a disaster to occupants. Since a well-functioning braking system is a must for a safe ride, 300SL drivers soon noticed the braking system operating abnormally when the vehicle reached a certain mileage. At first, they found the brakes noisy and responding poorly when being applied, then the brake pedal also pulsated heavily. Some also saw leaking braking fluids on the ground, then the rear brakes may get locked up on the wet surfaces. If the parking brake could not hold the car properly, and both Brake Warning Light and Parking Brake Light come on, you need to know the 300SL brake pads, brake disc, brake drum, brake rotors, brake line, brake proportioning valve and parking brake cable are having something wrong.
Apart from above-mentioned problems on Mercedes-Benz 300SL, you need to value routine maintenance on vulnerable auto parts of it, too. Please maintain the 300SL seat belt, windshield wiper, wiper blade, antenna, cabin air filter, fog light and headlight routinely for a perfect ride.
