Mercedes-BenzMaintenance in the Milwaukee, WI Area

Perhaps your new or new-to-you Mercedes-Benz vehicle may come standard with first-rate amenities, all vehicles continue to require regular service to maintain them in their best condition. Of course, the best form of maintenance is the routine kind. On the other hand, when small issues go unnoticed, they can lead to larger issues in the future. Knowing what to do for your car requires an expert. Here are the most frequently asked questions our dealership receives about Milwaukee, WI Mercedes-Benz maintenance.

  • The Check Engine Light

  • Why is my check engine light on?

    Computerized dashboards are standard features in most modern vehicles. These include indicators and sensors to assist drivers in managing vehicle safety. Common reasons that your check engine light is on include missing gas cap, time for an oil change, or even low tire pressure. This light also produces a computerized error code which is easy to read by a diagnostic machine.

  • Mercedes-BenzOil Change – Milwaukee, WI

  • How long between oil changes?

    While many auto technicians swear by the 3 months or 3,000-7,000 mile oil-change rule, there are always exceptions. Our first suggestion is always to check your car’s manual. This will give you the most accurate info, especially for relatively new models. Conversely, however, the manual provides little guidance when it comes to your vehicle’s age, history, and wear. This more complete recommendation requires an expert. If your mechanic seems unsure, then call your Mercedes-Benz dealer right away for the best advice.

  • Mercedes-BenzTire Rotation

  • What is a tire rotation? And when should I get it?

    A vehicle’s chief point of contact with the pavement is its wheels. Because of this constant pressure, periodic rotation of the tires is required to best distribute this wear and tear. A tire rotation every 6,000 to 8,000 miles is advised. Rotation guarantees that your tires will wear evenly. Also note that off-roading and 4WD, as well as personal driving habits, may influence your tire rotation frequency and interval, outside of a regular Mercedes-Benztire rotation schedule.

  • Mercedes-BenzBrake Pad Replacement – Milwaukee, WI

  • How long do brake pads last?

    The lifespan of your brake pad depends upon your typical driving habits and especially, the operating environment. Based on moderate to heavy usage, brake pads are usually designed to last through 20,000-25,000 miles. Factors that significantly reduce its life are braking frequently, high-speed braking, temperature elevation and driving on uneven areas or rocky terrain. On average, brake pads may provide from forty to sixty thousand miles of pad life under normal driving conditions.

  • Mercedes-BenzFuel Filter

  • When should I replace my car’s fuel filter?

    A clean fuel filter is essential for optimal and trouble-free engine performance. Always consult your Mercedes-Benz mechanic or automakers’ manual, but fuel filters typically can operate between twenty to forty thousand miles.

  • Mercedes-BenzEngine & Ignition System

  • Why won’t my Mercedes-Benzstart?

    Although there are numerous reasons why your Mercedes-Benz won’t starts, the most obvious reason may be the battery. For example, if you managed to leave your lights on, then its likely that the charge is drained. One early warning sign of a low battery charge is if it takes a moment to start when you turn the key. There may be other reasons why your Mercedes-Benz won’t start, so it’s best to consult a certified Mercedes-Benzmechanic.

  • Mercedes-BenzBrake Change

  • When do I need my brakes checked?

    Every scheduled auto care appointment should come with a standard inspection. A licensed Mercedes-Benz mechanic will check your car for any recommended services. This is the best way to check your brakes, as brake quality is measured by size, look, and feel. Be sure to have squeaky brakes looked at, as the noise can be a symptom of a larger problem.

  • Mercedes-BenzBattery Replacement

  • How do I know when to change my battery?

    The typical car battery will last from 3 to 5 years, dependent upon care and use. The easiest way to avoid a battery problem is to monitor your vehicle’s battery health. This most often takes place during a routine maintenance inspection. Most car batteries, like other perishable items, have a clearly marked expiration date.
