Mercedes-Benz 600SEC Common Problems & Maintenance Tips

Boasting excellent build quality, a long list of standard luxury feature, roomy and highly decorated interior as well as the powerful engine, Mercedes-Benz 600SEC could be a wonderful choice for you. However, the present 600SEC is at least twenty-four years old and it must suffer from these common problems without any doubt:
First, according to the reliable car repair statistics site repairpal.com, cooling system failure accompanying engine failure is Mercedes-Benz 600SEC's biggest problem. Few drivers could realize the seriousness of the cooling system failure as they think it is normal that the engine overheats when in operating. But in fact, once the engine stays at a high operating temperature, its performance will also decrease drastically. Professional 600SEC repairmen warn that once there are inadequate coolants in the coolant reservoir, you need to keep alert about the performance of engine because soon the engine will run roughly, misfire, stall and even suffer from starting issues. In order to avoid your vehicle from breaking down due to these symptoms, you are advised to inspect the working condition of the 600SEC intake manifold gasket, fuel pump, coolant reservoir, cooling hose, oil filter, air filter, engine control module and valve cover gasket thoroughly once both Low Coolant Light and Check Engine Light come on.
Second, another horrible problem on Mercedes-Benz 600SEC that troubles drivers a lot is the transmission failure, which could result in drivability problem and make the vehicle impotent. On account of the serious consequences the transmission failure could bring, you are advised to learn about these typical symptoms of it provided by experienced 600SEC drivers. It often manifests as clunking or grinding noises coming from underneath the vehicle, leaking transmission fluids on the ground and indicator not matching the gear, the transmission slippage or surging and difficulty in shifting gears. All these symptoms should be attributed to the 600SEC transmission assembly, shift cable, automatic transmission filter, automatic transmission shifter, transfer case seal and clutch fork.
However, you need to spare extra efforts to ensure a perfect ride on your Mercedes-Benz 600SEC. Some parts of it are bound to be vulnerable due to fragile materials and harsh working conditions and that is why you should add the 600SEC seat belt, windshield wiper, wiper blade, antenna, cabin air filter, fog light and headlight to your routine maintenance list since they also play important roles in creating a safe and comfortable driving environment under harsh working conditions.
