We, at Austrian Motors believe that the top 5 ways to your maintain your Mercedes in Atlanta are…

  1. Checking the Oil – Park your vehicle on a level surface. The engine should be switched off for approximately five minutes if the engine is at normal operating temperature. The engine should be switched off for at least 30 minutes if the engine is not at operating temperature, for example, if you only start the engine briefly. This is to give the oil time to come down out of the engine and into the reservoir. Pull the oil dipstick out of the dipstick guide tube. Wipe the oil off the dipstick. Slowly slide oil dipstick into the guide tube to the stop, and take it out again. If the level is between MIN mark = and MAX mark; the oil level is correct. If not, add oil as necessary. By the way, the G65 AMG® checks its oil for you via the on-board computer.
  2. Maintaining and Checking the Cooling System – A 50/50 mix of coolant and distilled water keeps the cooling system in proper shape and prevents corrosion and deposits from developing inside the cooling system. Checking the coolant level is quite simple. Only check the coolant level when the vehicle is on a level surface and the engine has cooled down. In a Mercedes-Benz the way to know the coolant temperature is to just turn the SmartKey to position 2 in the ignition lock and check the coolant temperature display in the instrument cluster. (The coolant temperature must be below 158 degrees F [70 C] to open the coolant reservoir) if coolant needs to be added. Slowly turn cap half a turn counterclockwise (to allow excess pressure to escape) and add coolant.
  3. Keep it clean – While washing the outside of the vehicle is obvious, most everything the vehicle ran over can also get stuck to the underside. Hosing off winter’s road grime and buildup is a good idea. Don’t get in the habit of thinking “What’s the point? It’ll get all splashed up again.” The less time moisture has in the nooks and crannies the better – Especially the underside.
  4. Keep an eye on the other side of the driving equation -We’ve discussed the best ways to keep you vehicle going, one of the best ways to do that is to not have it in heavy impacts or to avoid them all together. Check your brake fluid level, listen for any unusual sounds when you apply the brakes, and feel for any pulling.
  5. Check and keep proper tire pressure – Think about this for a moment, as large as your auto is, the actual footprint is about two (2) square feet total. Only the bottom of the tires, at any given time, gives you starting, stopping and maneuvering ability. Give them the best chance to do so, proper inflation and all at the same pressure.
