The importance of Cooling System checks!

We all know that Melbourne can have four seasons in one day (or one hour) and summer often brings with it dry and hot days, sometimes well over 40 degrees!

These high temperatures increase the operating temperatures of your Mercedes engine and add extra load on your cars cooling and airconditioning systems. A well maintained cooling system is critical to keeping your Mercedes engine operating safely and efficiently.

If the cooling system fails, it can often lead to very costly repairs.

You can do some quick checks yourself, such as popping the bonnet and making sure the coolant is at the correct level.

(Please remember that your cooling system should never be filled with water alone, the inner parts of your engine reach temperatures that a well beyond the boiling point of water. The proper cooling mixture has a higher temperature resistance which prevents it from boiling.)

The coolant in your radiator is just one part of the cooling system in your Mercedes.

Your hoses, connections, fans, water pump, drive belts and more should all be checked before summer to ensure trouble-free motoring.
