SLSHOPS: Engine Health Check
To help you get the best out of your SL, we must ﬁrst get to know the car.
Our health check is a comprehensive 300 point status survey for your car, not just limited to mechanical components but also interior ﬁttings and trim. This health check is structured like an MOT but in much more detail, performed in our service bay, on the ramps and out on the open road, where the car will be driven by experts with real experience of how it should be performing.
Once the check is complete you’ll sit down with Bruce Greetham to discuss the ﬁndings, go over the observations and make a forward plan to take the next steps in your classic Mercedes-Benz experience.
A health check is perfect for customers who have recently purchased an SL, or long term custodians beginning to think about a restoration. Contact us to book your health check now.
Why do I need it?
Finding the source of an engine problem can be frustrating – you might have replaced a component only for another related issue to emerge. An Engine Health Check is designed to mitigate these situations, giving a comprehensive picture of the overall health of an engine. It looks at every aspect of the running condition of your car, considering more than 30 different items. With an old car, it is always best to consider the engine as a whole. This gives the best chance of pinpointing an issue without creating further problems elsewhere in the engine in the natural process of diagnosing faults.
What does it do for the car?
An engine health check gives a comprehensive picture of engine health, allowing you to form a plan of action to improve the performance of your SL.
What does it do for me?
Chasing illusive misfires, leaks, wobbles and squeaks results in frustration and confusion, not to mention wastes time and money. By performing a complete engine health check you will be provided with the best possible information on the health of your engine, from top to bottom. Once those areas are addressed your SL should perform to the best of its ability, giving you more time on the road and less time on the ramp.
