About Mercedes-Benz 350SDL

As a part of the Mercedes-Benz W126, which is a series of S-Class automobiles and the S-Class is formerly known as Sonderklasse (German for "special class", abbreviated as "S-Klasse"), and is Mercedes-Benz's flagship as well as the successor to Mercedes-Benz Type 300, Mercedes-Benz 350SDL was built by the Daimler-Benz between 1989 and 1991 as a full-size luxury car. Originally introduced as a model of the second-generation S-Class, 350SDL was only available for two model years before being discontinued.
Mercedes-Benz 350SDL (W126) made its debut for the 1990 model year when the S-Class was in its second generation. It was offered in only one body style, 4-door sedan and came in only one trim level. "SD" in its name stands for S-Klasse-Diesel, which indicates the 350SDL was diesel-powered and "L" means it has a long wheelbase. Featured a front suspension using a separate spring and damper with a rubber top mount and a rear suspension featuring the Mercedes multi-link axle, 350SDL was also available for a single windscreen wiper hat had an eccentric mechanism at its base that extended the wiper's reach to the top corners of the windscreen, optional headrests that would fold down remotely to improve rearward visibility when required, a "neighbor-friendly" rear door that was pulled in the shut-position silently and automatically by a sensor-controlled servomotor, a tight-fitting rear gate that could minimize the cabin noise, additional oxygen sensor in the exhaust system in conjunction with a semi-electronic fuel injection system, could make the engine run more efficiently. During its lifetime, 350SDL was powered by a 3.5 L inline 6-cylinder diesel engine rated at 134 horsepower and 229 lb-ft of torque and power was sent through 4-speed, 5-speed automatic or manual transmissions to the rear wheels or four wheels.

Mercedes-Benz 350SDL Common Problems & Maintenance Tips

Being similar to the Mercedes-Benz 350SD in equipment, design and drivetrain, Mercedes-Benz 350SDL also shares some problems with it. If you still have a 350SDL in hand, you might as well learn about these common problems:
First, the engine failure is an inevitable problem on Mercedes-Benz 350SDL considering its age and this problem is always the omen of the vehicle breaking down. But if your 350SDL has not reached a high mileage, you might as well learn about these symptoms of it and get it solved in time. When the engine starts to make strange noises such as whining, squealing or rattling, you need to be alert. Soon, you will notice a suffered-performance engine, which will run roughly, misfire, stall and even suffer from starting issues including hard starting or inability to start; finally, the vehicle will also lose power when acceleration and have decreased fuel economy before it breaks down completely. You are advised to inspect the 350SDL oil filter, spark plug, engine control module, oxygen sensor, air filter, fuel pump, exhaust manifold gasket and valve cover gasket immediately when the Check Engine Light comes on.
Second, another common and horrible problem on Mercedes-Benz 350SDL is the suspension failure. In fact, few drivers have enough knowledge about the working principles of the automobiles, not to mention the suspension failure. Even some have heard of this problem, but they tend to underestimate it or think it could only bring about an uncomfortable and unsteady driving experience. However, professional 350SDL repairmen said starting with clunking or grinding noises from underneath the vehicle, you will end up with poor handling of the vehicle due to intense car vibration, tilting vehicle caused by uneven and excessive tire wear, unintentional steering and poorly operated steering wheel. All these could be solved by replacing the 350SDL wheel bearing, shock absorber, sway bar bushing, control arm bushing, coil springs, air suspension and coil spring insulator.
Moreover, the role of routine maintenance on vulnerable auto parts of Mercedes-Benz 350SDL is also very important. You had better put the 350SDL seat belt, windshield wiper, wiper blade, antenna, cabin air filter, fog light and headlight on your routine maintenance list as they work hard to create a safe and comfortable driving environment under adverse conditions.
