In the unfortunate event that you encounter an unexpected problem with your Mercedes, we’ll get it back on track. Troubleshooting engine problems, diagnosing system malfunctions, and aesthetic repairs are all services we provide. These are some common services you can rely on us for, however, if there is a service that you require which you can’t find on our site, get in touch with our team.
It might seem like a pain to spend the time and money on an oil change several times a year, but the end benefits are worth it. Oil changes should be done about every four months or every 3,000 to 5,000 miles. Failing to keep up with oil changes can cause damage to the engine and other vital internal components. Having regular oil changes can also prolong your car’s life and prevent more expensive repairs later on. If you haven’t had an oil change in a while, here’s why you should go.
Another routine Mercedes Benz service that we offer in Austin is brake repairs and replacement. Your brakes will most likely be checked when your car goes in for its 30,000-mile service checkup. Brakes can start to wear by this point, and it’s both dangerous and financially unwise to let a brake problem slide. When your car arrives for service, one of our mechanics will let you know when you should bring your car in for brake replacement next. In the meantime, if you notice signs of brake problems like a squealing or grinding noise when stepping on the brakes, or if the brake lights come on, call us for an appointment.
Periodically, your Mercedes will need to have more thorough service than just an oil change or tire rotation to make sure that it’s in good condition and drives at its best. Depending on the production year and model of your Mercedes, you’ll probably need to bring it in for service around 10,000 miles or once a year. We have the latest tools and equipment to perform factory-recommended service on your Mercedes, which makes us a leader among Austin auto repair shops and mechanics. Some common services that we provide at these recommended intervals are changing the transmission fluid and brakes, changing the brake fluid if necessary, replacing the engine air filter, changing the oil in the rear axle, and performing a multi-point inspection. You can follow your owner’s manual to see when you need to first bring your car to us for service. You can look for your specific vehicle’s manual on the Mercedes-Benz website.
Complete Vehicle Diagnostics
While a physical inspection of your Mercedes can tell us a lot about what’s going on, a sophisticated diagnostics inspection using state-of-the-art equipment can tell much more. When you bring your vehicle in for a Mercedes Repair service in Austin, we will hook it up to the latest diagnostic tools to get readings and information about your car’s vital internal systems. Diagnostic tests are a valuable component of a pre-purchase inspection, as they can let you know if there is anything wrong with the car that would make you want to avoid getting it. Our complete vehicle diagnostics are also helpful in quickly and accurately troubleshooting problems with a part that might be worn or need to be replaced.
Oil and Fluid Leaks
There are over a half-dozen kinds of fluids that can leak out of your car, and any of them can be a sign of trouble. One of the most common kinds of leaks is an oil leak. An oil leak will appear as a dark, greasy puddle of liquid that pools beneath your car. When you’re driving, you may notice a burning smell or smoke coming from the engine. This means that oil levels are dangerously low and you should call us immediately for service. Other fluids that can leak are the brake, transmission, and coolant fluids. Each one of these fluids can be distinguished based on the color of the puddle under your car and symptoms if your car is acting up. Here is a guide from Cars.com that explains how to tell what fluid is leaking.
Engine Diagnostics and Repair
Sometimes, the engine in your car will start to go bad for any number of reasons. Failure to keep up with regular service or the failure of a nearby component, which forces the engine to work harder, are frequent causes of engine problems. Either way, you’ll want to have the problem corrected right away since engine problems can get very expensive and cause catastrophic damage to your car. A telltale sign that something is wrong is when the “Check Engine” light comes on in the dashboard. You may also notice a loss of power. If you drive a manual, you may find that the car has trouble shifting gears. Only a qualified mechanic can diagnose the problem and get your car running smoothly again, which is why you should call us at the first sign of engine problems.
Wheel Repairs and Interior Repairs
We offer aesthetic services for your vehicle too. This includes removing scuffs, dents, and other marks from your wheels. We will also re-finish the wheels if they’re looking tired to make your Mercedes look new again. In addition to the wheels, we will restore the interior of your car, including repairing the upholstery, to improve its appearance. Both services will make your Mercedes more appealing to prospective buyers and prolong its lifespan.
