Hello benz fans

Hello benz Fans,

New to this post and would appreciate some help please.

I am a proud owner of a 1989 Mercedes W126 500se auto. i have maintained the car well but now its needs a good full service but i dont know wwhat is involved in that. i have a bmw e34 and a full service in that consists of diff oil etc but i am just not sure what to get done in the W126.i have had regular oil changes every 6 months and plugs, all the filters every year, basic service but i now know it needs the full monty.

i have owned the car for 4 years now. There is a sticker on th inside of the driver door saying timing belt to be changed at 112000 miles. it has now done 113000. should the timing belt be changed and is it a belt or cahin. also want to get all the belts changed so any help in this will be appreciated.

finally the antifreeze or engine coolant. what one will be best for this car. i know there are many tyes but whats the best one that will give full protection. i want to avoid going to the steelership as i know they will drink me dry.

i want to get the car in on Wednesday as its my day off so i know all will be done good and proper and also give me a peace of mind. i have a good mechanic who is well experianced but i will want to know whats involved for sources on this form.

i have read many posts and this is the place to read and see if you hae a benz.

hope to hear from somebody soon.

kindest regards
