Practical 100k Service recommendations (slk320)
I am still a little ways away from hitting 100k, but since I bought my car this past spring with about 85k miles and I have hardly any service history. I thought I would start a thread and solicit recommendations as to what major (and even minor things) beyond regular service that you guys recommend, or wish you had done at or around 100k miles.
Understanding I have an SLK320, and this thread is geared toward the 3.2l V6 there are some things I imagine might cross over to the 2.3l.
Since buying my car I have flushed tranny and diff and replaced filter, gaskets and tranny mount. I have done all the gaskets on the top end of the engine and replaced the alternator and serviced the belts.
On my list at or before that magical 100k point are the following, but again I am looking for suggestions as to issues which others have run across that maybe they had wished they had done preemptively.
What I plan on doing:
**Replace plugs wires and coils
**Flush radiator, replace coolant system hoses and Thermostat
**replace engine mounts
**replace shocks and springs
**replace suspension bushings
**replace brake pads, rotors and hoses, (incl. fluid)
**flush/service hydraulic fluid for top
**clean/service fuel injectors
Having looked through the MB service schedule a lot of this is as needed, or should have been done at some point in the previous 80k miles, but since I have no records I figured the 100k mark would be a good goal to work for. Along with working to refreshen the interior and the whole car to celebrate the 100k milestone.
