Dear Sir:
Is it needed to take any special care
about starting/turning off the supercharge
engine of SLK230K ?
I mean how's the wait time after starting a cool car , and turning off after ceasing the car ?

Best Regards

It will vary depending on how hard you drive the car. But usually, here is what I do(I have a heavy right foot). I would let the car idle for 30 - 60 sec before I shut the engine off to let the oil/coolant circulate. This is VERY critical for Turbo-charged engine, and may as well apply to supercharged as those engines are usually working harder then N/A engines.

As for start up. The car is ready to drive after 15 - 30 sec. But 'til the oil/coolant temp has reach it's proper working temp, take it easy on the throttle. Avoid full throttle and high rpm.

Hope this helps,
Andy Kuo

The supercharger doesn't use the hot exhaust to propel the air charge like a turbo does, so cool down time isn't required.
