If u can lay yor hands on Liqui Moly, it's perfect for yor engine. I also use a m272 engine like u av in yor ML350. With a very gud oil filter (Star or Bosch), u r good for at least 10,000km per service.

I created this topic yesterday before I stumbled on this great thread. I need help as I am about to get a Mercedes Benz GL450, 2007/ 2008 Model.
Can the experts here please help with experience on the reliability, ruggedity, maintenance cost and possibly resale value? I also observed that there are a lot of 'Nigerian used' of these rides for sale, is it advisable to get one of these in place of the Toks?

But in the morning when I start the car, I see "alternator/ battery drive to workshop". After driving for a long distance and I switch the car OFF and ON, The alternator/battery sign disappears.please what do I do?

|Re: Mercedes Benz Thread by atiku07(m): 12:04pm On Nov 24, 2017|
Me sef tire like say no be the same 4matic i drive all day the only thing about 4matic is the shaft and lower arms they are expensive to repair, yoruba adage says "owo ti o ni oye abuku kan" the shaft is just a little above 80k for toks and that is when it is damaged and it is adviceable to replace and not repaired when replaced u will use it for a very long time to come again, however the lower arms always deteriorate due to bad roads and it is expensive to repair aswell, it however goes for around 100k that also can be repaired for lesser amount so to me no big deal in 4matic it is all about having 4wheel on a sedan shikena!!
|Re: Mercedes Benz Thread by shortgun(m): 12:40pm On Nov 24, 2017|
igbizen:Have the the alternator tested! ask ur electrician to use a voltmeter or battery tester...don't accept the type of testing they do, removing d battery terminal while d engine is running.
Don't just assume ur alternor is fine without testing it.

Jakumo:have what you need, call me so i can give you details
|Re: Mercedes Benz Thread by SmartchoiceNGR: 9:23pm On Nov 25, 2017|
shortgun:I think he's talking about parasitic drain of the battery power. Note the alternator keeps the battery charged after a drive. But it drains overnight! He needs a technician who can trace the leak.
|Re: Mercedes Benz Thread by shortgun(m): 11:42pm On Nov 25, 2017|
SmartchoiceNGR:since he said he is seeing the "alternator/battery visit workshop" on the instrument cluster, that will rule out battery drain.
The battery drain will not show up on d instrument cluster but unstable or insufficient current from d alternator will display.
|Re: Mercedes Benz Thread by SmartchoiceNGR: 1:03am On Nov 26, 2017|
shortgun:It will show up if the battery's voltage falls below a particular threshold
|Re: Mercedes Benz Thread by SmartchoiceNGR: 1:08am On Nov 26, 2017|
|Re: Mercedes Benz Thread by shortgun(m): 8:48am On Nov 26, 2017|
SmartchoiceNGR:Smart, let the guy come and tell us if he still having d issue or not. Maybe he already found the solution to the issue and we will be here breaking our heads.
let him give us update.
|Re: Mercedes Benz Thread by igbizen(m): 4:48pm On Nov 27, 2017|
The alternator is being checked right now but I don't know what techniques of checking to look out for. Another thing I noticed is dat when I put a new battery, The spark from the neutral is high without key ignition and doors are all locked with remote key. Please I need help, The car just killed another 100Amps battery
|Re: Mercedes Benz Thread by igbizen(m): 4:50pm On Nov 27, 2017|
My kasim technician says it might be from the dashboard. I Dont understand what he meant by that.
|Re: Mercedes Benz Thread by emmaliver(m): 9:46pm On Nov 27, 2017|
SmartchoiceNGR:so wch one should i use
|Re: Mercedes Benz Thread by shortgun(m): 7:33am On Nov 28, 2017|
igbizen:since you have confirmed that the alternator has been tested and confirmed OK.
The next thing you need to do is tell ur electrician to disconnect the seat module, the 2 front seat module. its usually located under the seat they are known to drain battery when they fail.
Drive the car for like 2 days without the seat module and see if it will fix the problem.
|Re: Mercedes Benz Thread by igbizen(m): 8:17am On Nov 28, 2017|
My kasim technician says he want's to bypass the dashboard and see if the alternator/battery will work fine.
