About Mercedes-Benz 560SEC

Belonging to 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 560SEC was built by the DaimlerChrysler from 1986 to 1991 as a full-size luxury car. Originally introduced as a model of the second-generation S-Class, 560SEC was one of the several models in the lineup. After being available for about six model years, the 560SEC was discontinued although it was the third-ranked luxury vehicle in J.D. Power's 1990 Initial Quality Survey (IQS) and received the highest customer ratings in the J.D. Power Sales Satisfaction Index.
Mercedes-Benz 560SEC made its debut in the U.S. for the 1986 model year when the S-Class was in its second generation. It was offered in only one body style, 2-door coupe (C126) and came in only one trim level. "SEC" in its name is an acronym for S-Klasse-Einspritzmotor-Coupe in German. 560SEC introduced many Mercedes-Benz safety innovations, including the first seatbelt pretensioners and apart from that, it was also equipped with driver side airbag, passenger side airbag, Traction Control System (TCS), namely Acceleration Slip Regulation (ASR), Anti-locking Braking System (ABS), crumple zones front and rear, fluted taillights, high strength low alloy steel, courtesy lights on the underside of the doors, eight-way powered, dual stage heated front seats, and optional automatic climate control and others. During its whole lifetime, Mercedes-Benz 560SEC had been powered by a 5.5 L V8 rated at 295 hp and 336 lb-ft of torque and power was sent through a 4-speed automatic transmission.

Mercedes-Benz 560SEC Common Problems & Maintenance Tips

Have been praised for its state-of-the-art luxury and safety features, cutting-edge technologies, opulent interior and bulletproof construction, Mercedes-Benz 560SEC stands out in the coupe market. However, the youngest 560SEC now is at least sixteen years old, you have to be aware that these common problems will find it sooner or later:
First, for a mid-aged model like Mercedes-Benz 560SEC, the engine failure won't be strange to it. As the omen indicating the vehicle is on the verge of breaking down, any driver would like to get it diagnose and solved as soon as possible. However, few drivers know how to make it unless they learn about these recognizable and simple symptoms of this problem provided by professional 560SEC repairmen. It often shows as a noisy engine, leaking oil traces and burnt oil smell in the compartment at first. If you fail to notice those, the engine will soon have performance issues such as misfiring, stalling, hard starting and inability to start. Finally, the vehicle will also experience a reduction in power, acceleration and fuel efficiency. Even the Check Engine Light will come on to warn you that the 560SEC oil filter, spark plug, engine control module, oxygen sensor, air filter, fuel pump, exhaust manifold gasket and valve cover gasket have something wrong.
Second, another common and serious problem on Mercedes-Benz 560SEC is the braking failure. The seriousness of this problem is well-known for many drivers since the working condition of the braking system will influence the safety level of the ride. Some experienced 560SEC drivers told that after a while of driving, the brakes will become noisy and poorly responded, the brake pedal pulsates when being depressed, the braking fluids leak on the ground, and the brake rotors are covered by score marks. Finally, the rear brakes may get locked on the wet surfaces, the parking brake could not hold the car properly and the Brake Warning Light and Parking Brake Light come on. All these symptoms could be attributed to the 560SEC brake pad set, brake disc, brake drum, brake rotors, brake line, brake proportioning valve and parking brake cable.
