do cycle thru all your gears at least once a week. reason being, those seldom used gears may be "dry" due to diuse. oil doesn't manage to coat the gears. so it's a good idea to cycle thru all the gears just to ensure sufficient oil coats all of them.




Hi yeo,

Hope your car is on the road to recovery. Any updates?

Can you explain what do you mean by the above statements? Does it mean you have to manually shift the gear to 2-3 as well once a week. I assume -d-n-r-p you already do that on a daily basis...right?

Re: Tips To Help Make Your Car Last
1. Start with a car you like.
2. Regular interval service maintenance
3. Use fuel from a high volume station
4. Don't forget to warm up the engine (3-5min) before take off
5. Don't let fuel almost empty before refill
6. Reasonable speed (don't over stress, unless that car purposely for racing)
7. Measure when oil change use the correct engine oil
8. Dun save the money for your air filter and park plug
9. Check your engine oil in every 1000km
because m/benz is normal makan minyak hitam
10.Check the water tank before start car
11.Always remember your car have 5 tyres
12. Spend a few minutes a week checking under the hood.
13. M/benz gear box is every sensitive for water like when in driving look at the road have water dun try to pass it because your gear box breather air is at bottom so easy let the water go inside ur gear box.
14. When you park your car at a slope, make sure you pull the handbrake before you put your gears into P. That way, you make the brakes work for you and not the gear as a brake. This would minimise jerking when driving.
15. Develop a good working relationship with your mechanic preferably Mercedes Specialist workshop..


Yes, keep it comming guys..

Re: Tips To Help Make Your Car Last
Another tip is to let the engine idle a few minutes after your drive. Meaning if you have speed your car to soem 120 kmph, let it idle down so that all the parts could be lubricated and the engine can be normalized. This is just like turbo cars where they have installed a turbo timer to help them obtained the idling. Since we do not install one, then leaving it idle a few seconds can help.

Another tip is not to change the cylinder oil immediately and in a hurry after getting to the workshop. The cool oil may have some adverse effect to the engine. Leave it with patience and only do it when the engine cools down about 20 minutes later after arrival.
