Most people understand the process of rebuilding a Mercedes-Benz engine, but few know the reasons why an engine may need to be rebuilt or removed altogether. In many cases, it's sometimes more cost-effective to part out your Mercedes than to fully rebuild the engine.
Like everything with moving parts, vehicle engines degrade over time—even luxury grade engines. Gears grind out against each other and bearings eventually thin to a point where it's dangerous to get on the freeway. There's simply no way to stop this process entirely, things get old. But, a regular maintenance schedule (oil changes, BRAKES!) will help ensure that your vehicle will last longer and fixes will be less expensive and less frequent, if you just keep up with your maintenance schedule.
HOW DO I KNOW IF I NEED TO REBUILD MY ENGINE?
When can you know an engine needs to be rebuilt? There are a few indicators, some more severe than others. Some frequently experienced indicators of an engine in poor shape are excessive oil consumption and excessive white smoke in the vehicle's exhaust.
An extreme indicator would be metal shavings in the vehicle's oil, a sign of parts knocking together and scraping metal off of one another. The best way to know if your engine needs to be rebuilt is to take your Mercedes-Benz to a professional.
