Last week I added a post about a GL350 that was in for a blind spot sensor issue that turned into an engine rebuild due to a considerable lack of maintenance. That lack of maintenance was evident everywhere we looked. Below is the one of the old air filters next to a new one. It looks like more than a few years of dirt and quite an array of insects. We aren't even sure if it still flowed air.
The good news is that after some time in our engine lab the diesel is rebuilt and is back in. For those that will ask the inevitable question - yes the cabin air filter was just as bad.
Don't let simple maintenance items go into your 'blind spot'. We also do Pre Purchase Inspections (PPI) and if you are thinking of buying a luxury car or exotic give us a call and we can do a deep x-ray on it to give you some peace of mind. We've done everything from Mercedes to Ferrari's and Porsche for customers to give them a realistic understanding of what needs addressing, and the overall state of the vehicle they are thinking of purchasing.
Prepping to put the rebuilt engine back into the GL
