Mercedes Benz Service B

Mercedes-Benz is a car brand associated with luxury, reliability, German engineering and efficiency. It runs like clockwork, like a well-oiled cog—rarely demanding, always delivering. But just like with any other automobile, it too needs maintenance and repairs. Here at Timotors, our services help keep your European luxury car running smoothly and problem-free.

Mercedes Benz Service A and Service B

A Mercedes Benz vehicle is comprised of a wide range of mechanical and computational systems. These are interdependent on one another, so when one stops working as intended, your car suffers as a result. Fortunately, Mercedes AMG has come up with Service A and Service B to keep your car running for many years to come.

Here at Texas Int’l Motors, we’re certified to offer both Service A and Service B at our auto shop. We have been offering these services since the early 1990s. With our experience, state-of-the-art equipment, and Bosch certified mechanics, it’s small wonder why we’re Houston’s favorite.

Why choose Texas Int’l Motors over dealership?

We offer the same quality of work as a Mercedes dealership—only our work is affordable. We take great pride in our abilities, but we also respect fellow Houstonians. Unlike dealerships, we don’t try justifying charging Houstonians exorbitant prices. We believe in putting the community first. Over the decades, we’ve learned that when we do that, everyone in the Houston area benefits.

Mercedes Benz Repair Services

Regardless of the condition of your car—whether it’s a pre-owned vehicle, in good condition or in dire need of repairs Texas Int’l Motors has got you covered. So bring your car around so we can run our tests to determine its condition. We can keep minor issues from turning into big ones if we can detect them. If we find any issues, it’s only a matter of having the affected components repaired or replaced to keep your automobile’s overall health in a good state.

Mercedes Benz Timing Chain

Sometimes it can be hard to tell what exactly is causing an issue under your hood, however, at Timotors we have the knowledge and experience to determine what issue you are facing and the best way to fix it. We like to take the guesswork out of the equation.

What can cause timing chain issues?

Like all vehicle components, timing chains are subject to typical wear and tear. The metal “stretches” over time, which causes inaccurate timing of the crankshaft, and the camshaft will lag. Problems with the timing chain cause weak fuel economy and lower engine performance.

A loose chain will look more elongated and will form a bubble-like motion around the sprockets — also known as slack. The metal links don’t really stretch, although it seems like it. As tension decreases, slack in the chain causes it to loop out at one end instead of creating a consistent movement. The links move further apart, as opposed to stretching in length.

Symptoms of a failing timing chain:

  • Rattling sounds while vehicle is idle
  • Engine Misfires
  • Metal shavings in oil
  • Engine fails to start
  • Check engine light is on
  • Improper oil filter
  • Using the wrong oil

Always make sure to check your oil.  If there is a low oil level, the oil pump will ingest an excessive amount of air, triggering the timing chain adjuster not to have proper tension on the chain. Also, check for oil sludge under the camshaft cover. Is the oil of the right viscosity and specification? Are you using OEM oil filters?

Next time you are experiencing any of the issues above, come let our experts take a look!
