Question Last Check on 1997 E420 before warranty expires

I am bringing in my 1997 E420 with 36000 miles this week for a last check before the warranty runs out next week.
Any thoughts on any items I should have them specifically check.
The idle is a little uneven and I will have them investigate that. Anything relating to the idle or any other potential problems I should know.

So how well do you like you dealer?

I would first steam-clean the engine, tranny, radiator, and drivetrain.

Then I would request that tracer dye be dropped in oil, A/C system; powersteering, tranny, cooling, etc.

Using a U/V light and a R134 sniffer, find all the leaks.

Then have the dealer fix all the leaks under warranty.
