Hello,

I just bought a 2009 SLK300. I got a copy of the VMI and factoring in the Carfax data, it looks like the service was kept up with correctly.

I can't find these items in the service manual. Is there a consensus on when to do these items?

Differential fluid change
Fuel Injection flush
Power steering flush
Coolant flush (Manual says every 150K miles, 15 years - correct?)

Thanks

Bill

Replacing power-steering fluid generally is not listed among the regular maintenance items that should be performed, so on most vehicles replacing it is at the owner's discretion.
ok - it seems 3 items on my list are like that for my particular year/model.

Differential fluid change
Fuel Injection flush
Power steering flush

I'll read some of the how to threads.

Not a flush treatment but IIRC Jeff would've recommended Techron Concentrate Plus for fuel injection treatment (about every 3,000 miles).
