Tune Ups and Oil Filter Services
When all of the components of your Mercedes-Benz are working in tune with one another, you minimize the risk of experiencing any trouble on the road, and you can drive your vehicle with confidence. At European Motor Cars, we offer thorough inspections and employ diagnostic methods to guarantee that your vehicle is working safely and efficiently. From checking or changing out your spark plugs to replacing your oil filter, a tune up at European Motor Cars can make all the difference in the performance of you Mercedes.
When you need your Mercedes to pass its yearly emissions test, reliable maintenance is a must. Defective parts such as your oxygen or air flow sensors, catalytic converter, or thermostat can cause your vehicle to be less than efficient, as well as leaky components and contaminated oil. Although these are the most common issues, there are a number of others that could prevent your Mercedes-Benz from passing emissions. At European Motor Cars, we provide any service you need in order to make repairs that will guarantee that your vehicle isn’t emitting harmful gases. Our emissions repairs will ensure that your Mercedes is safe for the environment and ready to pass your emissions test.
Electrical System Diagnostics and Repair
The battery in your vehicle is responsible for providing power to your starter, ignition, and electrical system, and this electrical system is responsible for the functionality of your power seats, sunroof, interior lights, steering wheel adjustments, and more. Therefore, a malfunction or damage found within this complex system can cause a variety of problems elsewhere. A Mercedes-Benz battery should be inspected twice a year by professionals in order to diagnose any maintenance that needs to be completed, and at European Motor Cars, that’s exactly what we provide. Along with battery replacement services, we test your fuses, switches, spark plugs, relays and voltage regulator to make sure everything is in top working condition.
Heating and A/C Repair
Driving your Mercedes-Benz in the middle of the winter with no heat isn’t enjoyable in the least. With all of the time and money you’ve invested into your vehicle, you shouldn’t let something like a heating or air conditioning problem continue. The specialists at European Motor Cars are focused on diagnosing which component of your climate control system is causing you trouble. Whether the culprit lies within the blower motor, resistor, evaporator, leaking seals, or a malfunction in the electrical system of your Mercedes, we can perform the necessary repairs and replacements to make driving your vehicle a comfortable experience once again.
Shocks and Struts
The telltale sign of bad shocks or struts is a bouncing or bumpy feeling while driving your vehicle. Although damage could be the reason for the condition of your shocks or struts, these components also wear out over time simply because you’ve been keeping your vehicle active. This also means that how often you drive your Mercedes and what kind of road it’s driven on greatly influences when you will need repairs or replacements to your vehicle. It’s important to get your shocks or struts checked out routinely to make sure you’re not overdue for maintenance, which could lead to a ride that’s anything but smooth.
As the owner of a Mercedes-Benz, you may find yourself in the position of needing reliable engine work completed. When that check engine light comes on, it’s important that professional maintenance is your top priority in order to prevent further damage to your vehicle. A few examples of engine trouble are rattling caused by worn belts, an engine that has overheating issues, or a coolant leak in your radiator, but any symptoms involving starting your car or having it run at full potential could revolve around the need for engine repairs. At European Motor Cars, we can provide you with a professional diagnosis as well as repairs and replacement parts as needed, and can completely rebuild your engine to manufacturer standards.
The brake system is one part of your vehicle that can be dangerous to neglect. Luckily, brake failure isn’t something that normally occurs out of nowhere, and there are a few signs that Mercedes owners can pay attention to in order to determine if maintenance is necessary. If your brakes are grinding, squealing, sticking, or feel spongy or hard when you press on the pedal, it’s important to stop by European Motor Cars and have trained professionals perform an inspection of both your brakes and lamps. Whether it’s a brake fluid flush, hardware adjustment, contact point lubrication, or replacements of components like your pads, rotors or calipers, our Mercedes specialists work with diligence and care to make sure that you are kept safe while driving.
Mufflers and Exhaust
The exhaust system is responsible for converting and transporting the exhaust your vehicle emits safely and efficiently. Muffler problems are one of the most irritating for a vehicle owner to have, as the job of the muffler is to cancel out a lot of the sound that occurs when your exhaust exits your engine. The catalytic converter is another part of your exhaust system that can cause a lot of stress when it’s not working up to standard; symptoms of a bad converter range from low fuel efficiency and a sulfur-like odor from your exhaust, and replacements can be costly. Both of these issues are directly related to emissions and can make it impossible for you to pass your vehicle’s yearly testing.
Suspension and Steering
Your suspension is responsible for a smooth ride, and experiencing knocking, bumping or rattling from underneath your Mercedes means something has gone awry. One of the most frequent problems Mercedes-Benz owners experience is damage to the springs of the rear suspension. A spring can snap from wear and tear or by simply driving over a rough patch of road too fast, and can make your ride significantly less enjoyable. After a head-on collision, it’s usually the front suspension and steering components that have become bent or broken, and your vehicle will have to work a lot harder when it runs. This means that not only will you have poor control over your vehicle, your fuel economy and the condition of your tires will suffer because of it. At European Motor Cars, we provide repairs and replacements for broken or worn suspension components, as well as repair and re-alignment for for your steering system.
Fuel System Repair
Your fuel system is all about the perfect balance, and that balance depends on the type of injection system and the engine’s fuel requirements. While there are several parts involved with the system, the fuel pump and fuel injector are the main components. A fuel pump can fail due to wear and tear over time, as well as if it becomes jammed, overheated, or contaminated. While the problem could be as simple as a blown fuse or loose wire, it could be more complex and you may be in need of a replacement pump. Likewise, fuel injectors can leak or become clogged by residue or rust, which can lead to further complications and ultimately break or overheat other parts of your fuel injection system. Professional maintenance is a must to preventing the need for expensive work on your Mercedes.
Timing Belt and Water Pump Replacement
Timing belts and chains are used to help your engine run efficiently, and without proper maintenance and lubrication, these parts have the potential to cost you expensive repairs. At European Motor Cars, our mechanics work to find you solutions that are effective at rates that are competitive. We focus on preventative maintenance just as much as we do major repairs, which means we’re always on the lookout for problems that could become more severe down the road. Your water pump, much like your timing belts or chains, is used constantly but is often overlooked. Timing belts are the driving force behind water pumps, so we make sure to inspect both parts of your vehicle when either one is having a problem.
Transmission failure occurs when your clutch and bearings break down over time and pollute your transmission fluid. This causes heat production and increases wear, which means your transmission system will eventually stop functioning as it should and could require certain repairs or replacements. While European Motor Cars can service your vehicle in the event that you experience transmission failure, we also offer preventative maintenance to keep the worst case scenario from happening anytime soon. By merely flushing out old fluid, replacing filters, and being able to diagnose problems early, our specialists can save you money and keep your Mercedes’ transmission in excellent condition for longer.
