About Mercedes-Benz 400SEL
Mercedes-Benz 400SEL (W140) made its debut for the 1993 model year when the S-Class was in its third generation. It was offered in only one body style, 4-door sedan and came in only one trim level. "SE" in its name stands for S-Klasse-Einspritzmotor and "L" means it has a long wheelbase. The whole lineup introduced many innovations, so 400SEL could be equipped with the double-pane window glazing, power-assisted closing for doors and trunk lid, electric windows which lowered back down upon encountering an obstruction, rear-parking markers which rose from the rear wings (replaced with sonar-assisted packing later), a heating system, optional air suspension, a rear hydropneumatic suspension, optional Electronic Stability Control, option fixture, Acceleration Slip Regulation (ASR) traction control, front axle wishbone suspension, rear independent multi-link suspension, ADS (Adaptive Damping System) (Skyhook-type suspension), electrically-operated automatic-dimming inside rear-view mirror, dual-zone climate control and many others. During its lifetime, 400SEL had always been powered by a 4.2 L V8 rated at 275 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque and power was sent to the rear wheels through a 5-speed 5G-Tronic automatic transmission.
Mercedes-Benz 400SEL Common Problems & Maintenance Tips
First, for Mercedes-Benz 400SEL drivers, they have met the worst situation that a vehicle could ever meet during driving, the engine failure appears along with the cooling system failure. Most 400SEL drivers think it normal when the engine raises the temperature in operation, while when the cooling system fails or has inadequate coolants, the engine will overheat frequently and stay at a high operating temperature. If this situation goes on like this, the engine performance will soon suffer so that it will misfire, stall, and have starting problems. Finally, the vehicle will also lose power when accelerating and have poor gas mileage. Therefore, if both Low Coolant Light and Check Engine Light are activated, then please inspect the 400SEL water pump, intake manifold gasket, fuel pump, coolant reservoir, cooling hose, oil filter, air filter, engine control module and valve cover gasket thoroughly together.
Second, another problem on Mercedes-Benz 400SEL that troubles driver is the suspension failure. In fact, many 400SEL drivers have not enough knowledge about the working principles of the automobiles, not to mention to diagnose and solve the suspension failure in time. To help them and lessen fatal accidents, here are some recognizable and simple symptoms of the problem for their reference. It starts with clunking or grinding noises from underneath the vehicle, which is the culprit of uneven and excessive tire wear and ends up with poor handling of the vehicle due to intense car vibration, unintentional steering, tilting vehicle caused by uneven tire wear, and poorly operated steering wheel. All these symptoms are caused by the 400SEL wheel bearing, shock absorber, sway bar bushing, control arm bushing, coil springs, air suspension and coil spring insulator.
Moreover, attaching enough importance to routine maintenance on vulnerable auto parts of your Mercedes-Benz 400SEL could promise you a perfect ride. Some parts such as 400SEL seat belt, windshield wiper, wiper blade, antenna, cabin air filter, fog light and headlight are essential for a safe and comfortable driving environment, but they are also exposed to harsh working conditions, maintaining them routinely is an effective way to keep their best shape.
