About Mercedes-Benz 600SEL

As a member of the Mercedes-Benz W140, which is a series of flagship vehicles that were manufactured by the German automotive company Mercedes-Benz, Mercedes-Benz 600SEL was built by the Daimler-Ben from 1992 to 1993 as a full-size luxury car. Originally introduced as a model of the W140 lineup, which is also known as the third-generation S-Class, 600SEL had been available for only two model years before being discontinued and replaced by the S600 for the 1994 model year.
Mercedes-Benz 600SEL (W140) made its debut at the 1991 Geneva Motor Show in March and went on sale in North American for the 1992 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. 600SEL introduced many innovations such as 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, wooden rear ash tray covers, wood/leather shift knob, leather dashboard and a suede headliner. During its whole lifetime, 600SEL had been powered by a 6.0 L V12 rated at 389-402 horsepower and 420-428 lb-ft of torque and power was sent to the rear wheels through a 5-speed 5G-Tronic automatic transmission.

Mercedes-Benz 600SEL Common Problems & Maintenance Tips

As a model in the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, which had long been the flagship of this famous German automobiles manufacturer, Mercedes-Benz 600SEL could never be a disappointment. But since the youngest 600SEL now is at least twenty-four years old, you had better know how to diagnose and solve these common problems on it:
First, just as expected, engine failure appears on Mercedes-Benz 600SEL, but the worse situation is the cooling system comes along. Most drivers know how serious the engine failure but most of them do not realize that the cooling system will deteriorate and speed up the engine failure. According to experienced 600SEL drivers, when the cooling system starts to leak coolants and has inadequate coolants, the engine will keep overheating and stay at a high operating temperature. Once the temperature could not be lowered, the engine performance will soon decrease so drastically that it will misfire, stall and even suffer from starting issues. Before the vehicle dies completely, you will also notice a reduction in power, acceleration and fuel economy. When both the Low Coolant Light and Check Engine Light come on, you should inspect the working condition of the 600SEL water pump, intake manifold gasket, fuel pump, coolant reservoir, cooling hose, oil filter, air filter, engine control module and valve cover gasket immediately.
Second, another disaster for Mercedes-Benz 600SEL drivers is the transmission failure, which is often the culprit of the drivability problem and impotent vehicles. Considering the serious consequences it could bring, you are advised to solve it with the help of the professional 600SEL repairmen who offered some recognizable and simple symptoms of it. Starting with clunking or grinding noises from underneath the vehicle, leaking transmission fluids on the ground and indictor not matching the gear, you will gradually find the transmission slippage and surging, the vehicle starting in another gear or refusing to go into any gear, and difficulty in shifting gear. All these symptoms should be attributed to the 600SEL transmission assembly, shift cable, automatic transmission filter, automatic transmission shifter, transfer case seal and clutch fork.
However, it is not enough to ensure a perfect ride depending on simply solving above-mentioned two common problems on Mercedes-Benz 600SEL. You still need to perform routine maintenance on vulnerable auto parts of it to get a best-shaped vehicle. That is why you need to maintain the 600SEL seat belt, windshield wiper, wiper blade, antenna, cabin air filter, fog light and headlight routinely, not to mention that they play important roles in creating a safe and comfortable driving environment.
