97 e420 maintenance schedule list

HI again,
Does anyone have the maintenance schedule for the 1997 e420? I have the records for the car I just purchased. The service book is completely filled out and has always had service and Mobil 1 synthetic oil. Should I continue with the synthetic?

The next service is a "maintenance" service at 75,000..then another at 90,000. I will let my local MB tech do the work but I'd like to know before I go in what exactly it entails..so maybe I can buy the parts serperately and save some $. My tech will let me do that..such a nice guy. Go see him if you are in the Charlotte area.. Auto Verks.

So any help/list would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks again

15k services are pretty subjective but, should be a lube service (7500 mile service) plus air filter(s) change, tire rotation, wiper insert and dust filter if not done on the 30k's.

30k service is all the filters (your car has the 722.6 trans, service it every 60k), plus the 7500 and plugs. Check the caps and rotors on a EZL car. (your should be dis)

At 90k the diff oil is changed and I recomend the activated charcoal filters if you use them. (which are pretty nice when pine pollen season rolls around)

All services get the battery water level checked, latchs, door checks and hinges lubed, sunroof tracks cleaned and lubed, air pressure set (including spare), diff oil level checked and ATM level checked. Of course the obvious, oil and filter change. The power ant mast wiped with light lube and all lights checked. Brake condition checked, suspension components, flex disc's and basic systems function tested.

Naturally, the coolant and brake fluid is changed at the recomended intervals as well as the service books filled out and stamped.

On a car with a 7500 mile service interval I wouldn't have changed it to synth but, being that it already is on synth, I'd leave it on it.

Thanks Joe,
Great website you have!

So I gathered that the next service, the 75,000, is more of a lube service. Then the next big one is the 90,000 mile service.

I just noticed on the maintenance book it gives the scope of work to be done.

Thanks again!
