Mercedes-Benz Computer Scheduled Maintenance
An onboard dashboard computer alerts you when your next service is due. There are two basic types of maintenance intervals which alternate but get a new name each time, which can make the service tracking tricky. Models 2003 or later changed their interval reminder names from alphabetic to numeric. For example, older models will say “Service D” and newer will say “Service 2.”
If you’re wondering when and what should be serviced on your Benz, here is a high-level list of service intervals. As a rule of thumb, service should be done every 16,000 kilometers or yearly. The next comes at 48,000 kilometers, and the final one is done at 96,000 kilometers. Here are a few of the specifics for each service type:
- Replace dust filter
- Replace combination filter (activated charcoal particle filter)
- Replace air-filter (AMG vehicles only)
- Propeller shaft: check flexible couplings for damage and deformation
- Power steering: check oil level, correct if necessary (where applicable) 5, 12, 13
- Active Body Control: check fluid level (where applicable)
- Check starter using diagnosis tester
- Rear axle: oil change
- Replace brake fluid (every 2 years)
- Replace coolant for main circuit (every 3 years)
- Replace fuel filter on diesel engines (every 4 years)
- Replace spark plugs (every 4 years)
Just like you, we’re meticulous too! Sticking to the factory-recommended Mercedes maintenance schedule will help prevent problems and allow for the early detection of any emerging issues.
Upgrades worth considering.
