If you have owned a car for any time at all you are familiar with the common routine maintenance items. Routine maintenance work includes items that you do fairly often. The most common routine maintenance services are:
Mercedes Benz Brake Jobs
Mercedes Benz brake repair is perhaps one of the most important services that you can have done to your vehicle. Car brake systems are fairly complex due to added safety features such as ABS sensors and brake pad wear sensors. Unlike car brakes of years past Mercedes Benz owners have options in standard OEM brake parts and high performance brake parts. A basic brake job can be done with ceramic brake pads, a new wear sensor, bleeding brakes and visual inspection of brake components. A major Mercedes Benz brake job will entail replacing pads, wear sensors, rotors which can be solid, drilled or slotted, and sometimes replacing or rebuilding brake calipers.
Mercedes Benz Oil and Filter Changes
Oil changes are extremely important for protecting vital internal engine parts and getting the most years from your cars engine. Proper lubrication of your engine assures optimal engine operating temperatures, minimal wear on internal parts and substantially reduces the chances for premature engine failure. Cars that are properly maintained, especially with frequent oil changes, quite commonly run for over 350,000 miles. A Mercedes Benz passenger vehicle or SAV oil change requires synthetic motor oils such as Mobil 1, Castrol Synthetic European Formula Ultra, Kendall GT-1 full synthetic, Castrol Syntec, Elf Excellium, Moyul 8100, Shell Helix Ultra or Pennzoil European Formula Ultra. The weather conditions in your area will drive your choices for the best SAE grade for your vehicle. You should consult a Mercedes Benz repair shop or your owners manual for your specific oil change requirements.
Mercedes Benz Coolant Flush and Fill Services
Maintaining your Mercedes Benz cooling system is very important. A cooling system failure can lead to warped heads or even result in a seized engine which is incredibly expensive to repair. A routine cooling system service is to flush and fill your radiator with only Mercedes Benz approved engine coolant. As part of the coolant service your repair shop will inspect your radiator, radiator hoses, heater hoses, expansion tank reservoir and cap for signs of any problems.
Minor Routine Mercedes Benz Repairs
A car owner will periodically need to address minor parts that have failed or worn beyond their useful life. Common routine repairs include safety related work such as replacing wiper blades or burned out light bulbs for headlights, brake lights, tail lights and turn signals. Some items are more convenience or comfort related such as replacing cabin air filters, charging air conditioning systems and cleaning leather seats and carpet. It’s highly recommended to be proactive in changing drive belts and radiator hoses that can fail under even the most normal driving conditions. Mercedes Benz repair work can be very expensive, but the need can be minimized with on time maintenance.
